Robbie Keane has potential praised Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The former Spurs striker revealed that Pochettino and his backroom staff including assistant Jesus Perez have been a great help during his early days in coaching.
Keane is the Republic of Ireland’s assistant manager and would combine his role in a similar position at Middlesbrough where he will work under ex-Spur Jonathan Woodgate.
Mauricio Pochettino has also extended a classy gesture by allowing Keane to come and watch Spurs train whenever he wishes at Hotspur Way to continue his coaching experience.
He told Off the Ball’s official YouTube account: “He’s been great. The door is always open if I want to go to the training ground and watch the lads train. The assistant manager, Jesus, who I get on very well with, has been brilliant.
“I have been fortunate in that respect that I have those people to call on and if I need to ask questions then they have been great.”
Keane also believes that Pochettino is the right man to deliver silverware to North London after eleven years without a trophy.
Keane was in the side that beat Chelsea all those years ago and is in no doubt Pochettino will win trophies in N17: “Will he? If he stays. Absolutely. He’s a winner. He’s a winner!”
It is brilliant to see that Pochettino and the club are so willing to help former players with their coaching careers and it could see a pathway of Spurs academy players heading to Middlesbrough for some first team footballing experience.
