Report: Spurs players feel ‘untrusted, overworked and underpaid’ at the club

Tottenham Hotspur are going through what is arguably their hardest moment since Mauricio Pochettino took over five and a half years ago. The defensive solidarity that they displayed in previous seasons has seemingly disappeared, as has the aggression and desire.

Many have questioned if Mauricio Pochettino has lost the Tottenham dressing room and a report in the Athletic suggests that there might be some truth to those suggestions.

The publication quotes a source from inside the Spurs dressing room as saying, “The place is a regime and they’re sick of him. It’s his way or nothing, there is no balance. The players don’t get the impression they are trusted at all.”

It is further claimed that the players are tired of the same old messages and instructions from Mauricio Pochettino.

The report also goes on to assert that many of Tottenham’s stars feel underpaid and were jealous when they leaned that chairman Daniel Levy earns an annual salary of £6million.

Meanwhile, Sportsmail recently reported that the Argentine has grown increasingly distant from his players and prefers to monitor training sessions remotely rather through a CCTV camera rather than being present there.

It is to be expected that these types of reports tend to come out when things aren’t going well for the club. While there is no way of knowing if there is any truth to these assertions, the only way to put an end to this negativity is to start winning football matches again.
