Mauricio Pochettino was sacked as head coach of Tottenham Hotspur last month after helping to transform the club’s fortunes on the field.
The Argentine guided the club to four successive top four finishes during his five and a half years in charge of the North London outfit, bringing regular Champions League football to the lilywhites.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy arranged for a £156,000 Bentley Bentayga luxury car to be delivered to Pochettino’s home in recognition of his efforts at the club and also for reportedly turning down Manchester United (The Sun).
Levy admitted earlier this week that the dismissal of the 47-year-old was the hardest managerial decision he has had to make due to their close personal relationship (Evening Standard).
Following his sacking, Pochettino was asked during an interview on whether he will get to keep the expensive vehicle and insisted that while he still has it at his home in London, the decision is down to his former chairman.
“I don’t know. I need to ask him,” Pochettino told The Associated Press.
“At the moment it is in my house and … I will see in a few months if it was a present or it was only to say, ‘You use the car and when you will not be here you return the car.’
“I don’t know you need to ask Daniel not me. I don’t know what is going to happen.”
