Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is reported to have made contact with Mauricio Pochettino to discuss his severance package.

The Argentine was dismissed by Levy in late November after a disappointing start to the new season which saw the club drop to fourteenth in the Premier League table along with suffering humiliation in cup competitions at both ends of the footballing spectrum at the hands of Bayern Munich and Colchester United, respectively.

Pochettino’s departure after five and a half years in charge of the North London club saw him placed on gardening leave by Levy, who agreed to keep paying Pochettino’s £8.5million salary until he found a new club (Daily Mail).

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Levy is said to have asked Pochettino to take a wage reduction to help relieve the financial strain.

Pochettino signed a five-year contract in May 2018 which would have kept him under contract until 2023 (Telegraph).

The report claims that Spurs will also look to contact the rest of Pochettino’s backroom staff who also left the club including Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino and Toni Jimenez.

  1. I really don’t see what right Levy has to entertain the notion that Pochettino should take a pay cut to his contracted salary, given that it was Levy who demonstrated no faith in Poch’ and sacked him despite all the Argentian had achieved as Spurs manager. Perhaps Levy should take a permanent 100% pay cut and resign as chairman.

  2. Increase the man’s salary and bring him back, give him the funds he needs to rebuild as he asked for, he has got us to where we are, please let him finish his project. IN POCH WE TRUST
