If Tottenham’s poor start to the season hadn’t already been a cause for concern for the Spurs board, then the 7-2 thrashing at home against Bayern Munich would have surely got the alarm bells ringing.
Spurs completely capitulated in the second half as they were second to every ball and Bayern punished the home side with their clinical finishing.
Some Spurs fans on social media were predictably outraged by the performance with many questioning if Mauricio Pochettino’s time at the club was coming to an end.
However, it appears that the Tottenham board doesn’t share the same concerns just yet and is ready to give Pochettino the time to turn things around at the club.
A report in Football Insider claims that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy still believes that the Argentine is the man to turn around the club’s fortunes and continue the progress the team has made in the last five years.
It is claimed that the Spurs board believe that the 47-year-old has enough credit in the bank after how well the team has performed during his reign at the club.

If there is truth to this report, then it is certainly positive news as there is no doubt in my mind that Pochettino is the man to turn things around. The Argentine has reiterated multiple times that this is a transitional season and so he has to be given time to come through this. I believe the players, as well as the coaching staff, will be hurting more than most after Tuesday evening’s thrashing.
