Tottenham Hotspur are in turmoil at present having suffered a terrible start to the new season.

Not only have Tottenham dropped points to the likes of Newcastle United, Brighton and Leicester City, the performances of the Spurs players have not been up to the required standard which have also seen the club embarrased by Colchester United and Bayern Munich in cup competitions.

A recent report in The Mirror claimed that the Spurs hierachy had identified England manager Gareth Southgate as their number one target to take over from Mauricio Pochettino should the Argentine depart North London.

Mauricio Pochettino has since come out and said that he will not walk away from the job and still hopes to be in charge for five more years (Sky Sports).

Ahead of England’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, Southgate has distanced himself from a possible exit as Three Lions boss and fully intends to honour his contract which runs until 2022.

He told Sky Sports: “You go to bed Saturday night and you wake up Sunday morning and the agenda’s set.

“Look, I’ve said in the summer, I’m not somebody that needs to hedge my bets and needs to play cleverly and say, ‘I’ll keep this door open, that door open’.

“I’m the England manager and it’s a massive privilege to do the job. There’s a lot of work to do here with the team.

“We think the team can continue to improve, and until I’m told otherwise, 2022 is my contract, and that’s it.”

Opinion

I firmly believe that Pochettino is the man to get us out of our current prediament, he deserves the opportunity to do so considering far he has taken us over the past five seasons.

He has been let down by Daniel Levy in the transfer market and his players need to start performing or get out of our club.
