Tottenham Hotspur boss is having a tough time of it at the moment in all competitions in this new 2019/20 season.

Spurs have played eight games so far in the new campaign, but have only managed two wins, both at home to Aston Villa and Crystal Palace.

Tottenham have already lost to the likes of Newcastle United, Leicester City, and even League Two Colchester United. They have also drawn against Man City, Arsenal, and Olympiacos.

Since taking over as Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino has taken them to new heights season after season, with the pinnacle being the Champions League Final earlier this year.

However, ex-footballer Danny Mills has now questioned whether Poch has taken the club as ar as he can with the budget available to him.

He also claims that Manchester United may be appealing for the Argentine, while stating that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not the right man for the job at Old Trafford.

He said (TalkSPORT): “Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the right man for that rebuilding job?

“He’s never done it before and it’s a very specific role that you need and it’s his first proper job. I know he was successful at Molde but he didn’t do well at Cardiff.

“Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world and if it’s a complete rebuilding project, is he the right man for that job? I’ve always questioned it.

“Manchester United has to be very appealing for Pochettino.

“He must be thinking: ‘I’ve done everything possible with Tottenham, how do I take them to the next level now? Is it going to be possible?’

“Without increased funds, he can’t keep doing that season after season. He’s improved them no end and he’s clearly got a plan of bringing through players.

“He would have been the perfect fit for Manchester United and their rebuilding project.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

The talk of Poch Out needs to stop, or else it will simply fuel these kinds of rumours. Poch is and always has been the best man for the job at Spurs. He has been loyal to the club over the years and the fans must now be loyal with him.
