Tottenham Hotspur’s ex-manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has finally broken his silence on being sacked by Daniel Levy and the board earlier this month.

Pochettino was handed his marching orders after a poor start to the season that had seen Spurs win just three out of 12 Premier League matches.

Tottenham also had gone without an away win since January 2019 and seemed to be on a downward spiral since the 2-0 loss to Liverpool in the Champions League Final.

Almost as soon as Poch was sacked, the Lilywhites introduced Jose Mourinho as the new manager of the club.

Since then, Spurs have won their first two matches under the Special One, including an away win over West Ham United last week in the league.

Pochettino has thanked Joe Lewis, Daniel Levy, his staff, his players, and the fans for his time at Tottenham, assuring that he gave his all in North London.

He wished the club the best for the future, and said he is sure he will cross paths with Tottenham again.

Poch said (LMA via Mirror): “I would like to thank Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy for giving me the opportunity to be part of Tottenham Hotspur’s history.

“I would like to thank also everyone I met at Tottenham, all the club staff and the football players during these five and a half years.

“Finally I would like to give a special mention to the fans who make this club so great with their fantastic support.

“I gave the best of me to accomplish the objectives I was asked for in our first meeting. There were equally tough challenges as exciting success.

“Best wishes for the future, I am sure we will cross paths again.”
