Tottenham Hotspur’s surprise Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United was certainly a shock with the defeat only magnifying the poor start to the new campaign.
While there have been a mumblings of discontent from some pockets of fans on social media who have called for the club to part company with Mauricio Pochettino, talkSPORT presenter and Spurs supporter Paul Hawskbee believes that the blame should lay at the door of Daniel Levy and the board.
Hawksbee admitted his surprise at the negativity aimed at Pochettino and praised how he has helped to transform the club over the past five years while also highlighting how the Argentine has had his hands somewhat tied in the transfer market with both incomings and outgoings.
He singled out the example of Victor Wanyama where he was signed for £11million (BBC) and looked set to join Club Brugge for £13million (Evening Standard) but still finds himself involved in the Spurs first team despite the move failing to materialise.
It is an absolutely brilliant summary from Hawksbee on the situation at Spurs.
"Pochettino has turned the club around in the last 5 years." ⬆️
"To say he's taken it as far as he can, I find quite staggering."
"I lay most of the blame at the board and the chairman's door."
