‘He is overrated’ – Piers Morgan makes laughable Pochettino claim

Tottenham Hotspur became the first ever Premier League side not to sign a single new player in the summer transfer window this year.

However, despite the lack of funding, Pochettino has managed to lead his side to a very impressive level so far this campaign.

Spurs currently sit third in the League, above many teams that invested a lot more money than them.

Tottenham are also in the Champions League knockout stages against Borussia Dortmund, after pulling off a sensational comeback.

Despite falling in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, Spurs are still in with a chance of scooping a domestic trophy in the FA Cup this season.

In summary, Spurs are above Arsenal in the table, in the knockouts of the Champions League, a competition Arsenal didn’t qualify for, got further than Arsenal in the Carabao Cup, and stayed in the FA Cup for longer than them too.

Despite all this, Arsenal fan Piers Morgan still felt he had to come out on talkSPORT this week and slate Spurs gaffer Pochettino as overrated.

Morgan said (talkSPORT): “I only say ‘Pok-ettino’ to annoy Spurs fans,” he revealed when asked why he pronounces the Argentine’s name the way he does.

“But the fact that no one really knows how to pronounce his name says it all to me. He is overrated.

“I genuinely do not believe that Spurs, under Pochettino, are any better than they were under Harry Redknapp. I genuinely don’t.

“And I certainly don’t think Spurs are as good now as they were in the days of Lineker and Gazza, for example, and Jurgen Klinsmann even and Ossie Ardilles!

“They got on about this Spurs team now as if they are some sort of world beaters; they have won nothing of significance!

“They’ve just been dumped out of another cup and someone sent me this the other day. [Gonzalo] Higuain has come in and he has made more finals in six hours than Tottenham have done in the last 15 years!”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. you shuld lookwhat he have done with spurs all this years he been there and dont go for what pepole he get in or dont get in he took a team and made it better we was in 5 and 6 team now we have been qulify to champions leauge 4 times and still we get stronger

  2. If Penis Morgan really thinks Pochettino is overrated then that tells you all you need to know about him and his knowledge of football. He KNOWS NOTHING, just like Manuel from Fawlty Towers. What an idiot he is.

  3. Morgan is merely distracting from his own team’s woes.
    Poch, as long as he stays, will become a legend at Tottenham,
    and with trophies sure to follow, there’ll be a statue of him
    outside the new ground one day. Not that he’d be there today
    if Redknapp hadn’t taken his eye off the ball when he threw his
    hat in the ring for the England job. That cost us hugely in our
    development of a fine team ..just as the Venables/Sugar bust-up
    cost us majorly in the early 90s.

  4. Piers Morgan is a total moron.The sort of twat that everyone avoids at ant time.Why anyone would take his moronic drivel seriously puzzles me.He has sunk to his correct level……the moron on breakfast TV that everyone ignores.
