Tottenham Hotspur have been making a lot of the back pages this week, but not for the reasons they would have wanted.
After the sacking of Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, Spurs boss Pochettino has been heavily linked with the permanent job (Goal.com).
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been named as interim boss until the end of the season, but that doesn’t rule out a move for Poch in the summer.
Many media outlets are talking as if Pochettino to United is a certainty, as if it’s a decision already decided by all parties (Telegraph).
They seem to think that little old Tottenham are not capable of keeping the likes of United at bay, or the Argentine boss happy in his role at the club.
Pochettino has been at Tottenham for well over four years now, and has taken the club to new levels, but his job isn’t finished yet.
Amidst rumours surrounding himself and Real Madrid, the most attractive job in football right now, Poch decided to sign a new five year deal in the summer.
He was committed to his long term project at Spurs then, and his comments over the past week have implied that has not changed.
So why are the media showing such a lack of respect to Tottenham?
You wouldn’t get these kind of headlines if Klopp was linked to Barcelona, or Pep to PSG, but because Tottenham are not consistent title winners, they think they can report whatever they like with no substance.
It’s time for the papers to show a bit of respect and report the news, rather than stories with no evidence to back them up.
Pochettino is the Tottenham manager until he says otherwise.
