Tottenham Hotspur booked their place in the quarter finals of the Champions League last night with a 4-0 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund.
Spurs went into the tie three goals to the good from their home leg, but went above and beyond to not only hang on to their lead but extend it in Germany.
Tottenham became one of the two first teams to make the quarters this season, alongside Ajax who knocked out the holders Real Madrid.
Despite conceding away goals in their home leg, Ajax travelled to the Madrid and embarrassed the holders by beating them 4-1.
On the surface, this may look like good news for Spurs and the other Champions League quarter finalists, however it may have some negative undertones in North London.
The loss could see Real manager, Santiago Solari, struggle to keep his job for much longer, and some believe Pochettino may be a target for the Spanish giants.
David Seaman said on Sports Breakfast: “Tottenham must be getting a bit worried now.
“You don’t expect any Real Madrid manager to go through what he’s just gone through and keep their job.
“I think it all depends on what Tottenham do this season, whether they do win a trophy, and then what promises have been made to Pochettino.
“He’s gone through a whole season now without signing any new players and that’s hard to take, especially for a team that is pushing to win the Premier League title.
“It depends what the board want – do they want Tottenham to really be having a go for the Premier League? If they do they need to make some signings.
“Poch will want to know that answer – is he going to get money or not? If he isn’t going to get any money, then he might start looking over his shoulder.
“That job at Real Madrid is huge now and it needs a lot of money spending, but there’s one thing for sure, you will get that money if you go to Real Madrid.
“It would be a no-brainer.”
