Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has done a fantastic job since taking the job over five years ago.

Poch came into the North London club, cut out the deadwood, and whipped the stars into shape in order to help them achieve their potential.

As a result, Tottenham came close to winning the Premier League two years running and even reached the final of the Champions League last season.

Unfortunately, the Argentine has been unable to take the club over the finish line so far as manager, with Tottenham forever being the bridesmaids.

Tottenham’s team also look to be wilting this season after picking up just three wins from eleven games in all competitions, including being knocked out of the League Cup by Colchester United.

The Daily Mail have now reported that Tottenham players blame the poor start to the season on Pochettino’s training schedule and that he does not give them enough time off.

It is claimed that Pochettino even makes the players stay at the training ground overnight after European trips, with a warm-down the next day.

The next day off for the Tottenham team is apparently not until October 28.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Spurs were so close to lifting the biggest trophy in club football. It seems only natural that Pochettino would want a big push this season. Any player who is not behind that needs to take a look at themselves and their paycheck.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Are the Spurs Web writers having a competition to see who can offer the biggest load of rubbish on the subject of the current crisis at the club? The team is playing with no heart or inspiration, but the author thinks that more of Pochettino’s clearly failed boot camp regime is the answer? Pochettino has shown all too clearly that he’s a one-trick pony, and when the players can no longer summon the energy or enthusiasm to press relentlessly as they did three of four years ago, that’s it – he’s got nothing else in the locker. Trouble is he’s effectively unsackable, courtesy of Levy’s supposedly brilliant policy of offering long contracts, which means we’re stuck with has-beens like Wanyama, never will-be’s like Alli and Dier, and an out-of-his-depth manager in Pochettino.
