One of Pochettino’s lowest points – Former Spur has his say

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas has claimed that Mauricio Pochettino is struggling at Tottenham.

Jenas, who now works as a football pundit made the comments while on the panel of BT Sport following the shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Inter Milan.
After suffering three successive defeats for the first time since the Tim Sherwood era, Jenas believes that Pochettino is going through his toughest patch as Spurs boss.
Next up for Spurs is a Saturday evening trip to Brighton where fans will be expecting the side to get back on track after this poor run of form, or our hopes of another Champions League campaign could be seriously dented if this form continues.

He said on BT Sport: ‘They (Tottenham) invited them (Inter) back to the party to an extent. Spurs were getting into great positions and should have done better with those.

‘At that point (the last 10 minutes) you’re thinking they were pressing right, and when they went back to that three in the middle, it went disjointed again.

‘This is probably one of Mauricio’s lowest points he’s found himself in as Spurs manager.’ 

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. JJ is correct and the evidence is crystal clear about MoPo: gone is the footballing swagger we had from 18 months ago, where we played the high press, energetic attacking style. Team selection has become a little baffling and a flexible and decisive Plan B remains his Achilles heal. IMO we have reverted to the sideways play more often than not and our confidence has seeped through the floor. However, rather than kick MoPo out of the ground, let’s put the spotlight on our Board of Directors (it isn’t just Levy) because I believe MoPo is now paying the price for their significant misjudgements. It was only a few months ago that MoPo openly challenged the Board to be “bold” and build on achievements. The summer transfer window gave MoPo his answer. The Board has allowed the (fantastic) stadium to become a PR disaster and this negativity must affect the playing and coaching staff. Personally, if we need to get angry and angsty, focus on the members of the Board, not the playing staff. That’s the last thing they need at the moment.
