Tottenham Hotspur may have sacked Mauricio Pochettino last month, but there appear to be no hard feelings from the Argentine, as he reveals he is still happy to see the team do well.
Pochettino managed the Lilywhites for over five years in North London, transforming them from Europa League qualifiers to Champions League Finalists in such a short space of time.
Poch managed to guide Spurs to four consecutive top-four finishes in the Premier League, putting the club on the map in Europe by defeating the likes of Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Man City, Ajax, and more.
However, after a woeful start to the new season, and Spurs down in 14th in the league, Daniel Levy and the board took the decision to give Poch his marching orders.
The club replaced the beloved manager with serial winner Jose Mourinho within 24 hours, and the team has seen an uptick in both performance levels and results.
Poch had this to say (Express): “Of course (I am happy to see Tottenham doing well) because I love Tottenham, I love the fans, I love the players, I love the club, the staff and of course when you leave a club, always you want them to win games because that means the team is alive, the team was already prepared to compete.
“For different reasons, you split but there are people for whom you always want the best and I’m so happy that they are winning games and that’s the most important thing because that love is never going to change.
“You accept the rules in football and that is the most important thing. I think it’s best to accept that in football things can happen but happy to see and enjoy the team winning games of course.”
