According to The Sun, Mauricio Pochettino is set to commit for one more season at Tottenham Hotspur when he meets Daniel Levy for “crisis” talks.
Pochettino, who is wanted by Chelsea, threw his future into doubt after Sunday’s 5-4 win over Leicester and the article says that although the Spurs chief accepts he got carried away with his post-match moments, he still wants assurances from chairman Levy before committing his future to the club.
Pochettino is one of the most sought-after coaches in world football and it adds that he is reluctant to trade the goodwill he has at Tottenham for a controversial move to Stamford Bridge, however, he is desperate to land some of the game’s major honours.
The article goes on to say that Pochettino believes Levy has been preoccupied with the building work at our 61,000-seater stadium at the new White Hart Lane.
It adds how he has complained about the lack of financial backing to create a team good enough to land the biggest trophies with the Spurs chief urged Levy to “tell the truth” to supporters on Sunday after the club’s third-place finish.
It goes on to say Levy himself has never put his head coach under pressure to bring home trophies — and Pochettino is convinced his boss is content with Champions League football and that does not suit the ambitious young manager and he wants Levy to release substantial funds this summer to improve his playing squad.
Both Manchester clubs, Liverpool and Chelsea will all re-arm this summer and he will also be up against a new Arsenal manager next term.
Now the Mirror did state only yesterday that Pochettino was off to Chelsea but now he’s going to give the club “one more year” Now there usually is no smoke without fire but at the moment it all seems to be just rumour. What do you think about the whole situation? Do you think Pochettino is slightly unsettled or is he trying to force Levy’s hand?
