Some Spurs fans on social media are involved in a fierce debate as to whether Mauricio Pochettino can be considered a success at Tottenham, after the Argentine’s recent admission to the press about his time at the club.

Pochettino revealed in an interview with El Pais that he had disagreements with the club’s hierarchy over the path forward and also admitted that perhaps a change was needed after five and a half years at the helm.

Reacting to the former Tottenham manager’s words, some immediately targeted Daniel Levy and accused him of not supporting the Argentine enough.

However, it looks as if Arsenal winning the FA Cup on Saturday night may have caused some Spurs fans to reevaluate Pochettino’s time at the club.

A few questioned why the 48-year-old could not deliver a single trophy during his five and a half years in charge despite having some exceptionally talented players to work with.

Here are some examples of the argument that has been raging between Spurs fans on social media for the past 24 hours:

One of Pochettino’s biggest mistakes at Tottenham was not giving the FA Cup, League Cup and the Europa League, the attention they deserved. After coming close to winning the league on a couple of occasions from 2016-2018, Poch seemed to double-down on his assertion that domestic cup competitions are not important. The criticism he received about the lack of silverware to show for his work clearly got to him. However, there is no debate that the Argentine is one of our most successful managers in recent history even though he failed to win trophies as he helped transform the club on and off the pitch.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Pochettino was an abject failure in my eyes despite qualification for the Champions League and somehow reaching the final last year (only God knows how). How many players did he buy? Sanchez, Sissoko, Aurier, Sessegnon, Foyte, Son, Jansen, LoCelco, Moura, Odombele, Bergwijn, Llorente, Clarke, forgive me if I’ve missed anyone out, I’m sure there a couple more. Added to that he already had the likes of Kane, Alli, Eriksen, Toby and Jan, Moussa Dembele, Kyle Walker, Trippier, Rose, Lloris, Dier, Lamella and he still fucked up. Even tinkerman Claudio Raniere at Leicester who had lesser players and a minuscule budget compared to Spurs, won the fucking league. Yet the nonces continue to laud Pochettino as a great manager, enough of the bullshit. In almost 6 years under is mismanagement, we won sweet FA. All he did was moan and groan. In case you hadn’t noticed, he’s still unemployed.

  2. Spot on. Agree entirely ( minus the superlatives ). Every team he fielded over his tenure was miles better than Arsenals cup final team of yesterday. Yet a manager comes in for half a season and sets them up to win a trophy that they really shouldn’t have been good enough to. Tells me Arteta knew what to do.
    Pochetino had no idea what to do highlighting in the distatrous CLF team selection. Should never have been appointed in the first place.
