How Mauricio Pochettino was almost on the Graham Norton Show

A week ago today, Spurs were licking their wounds from heartbreaking Champions League final defeat at the hands of fellow Premier League side Liverpool.

Tottenham dominated the game in terms of possession, shots, and shots on target, but were defeated by a penalty inside the first minute and a late Divock Origi second.

Both Pochettino and Klopp were looking for their first trophies at their current clubs, but only the Liverpool boss was able to walk away with the top prize.

It has now been revealed by The Times that, as a result of winning the final, Jurgen Klopp was invited to appear on the Graham Norton Show, but turned it down due to holiday commitments.

The Friday night chat show is usually reserved for music, TV, and film stars, but they wanted some football insight following the all-English final.

Not only could Spurs fans have enjoyed winning the competition, but they could have also seen Pochettino take to the famous red couch on prime time British tele. Oh, what could have been.
