Jermaine Jenas has backed Mauricio Pochettino to succeed at Tottenham Hotspur and believes that he wants to create a legacy in North London.

Pochettino admitted earlier this week that the club deserved criticism from supporters in light of Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup exit at the hands of League Two side Colchester United (Sky Sports).

Jenas believes that if Pochettino decided to throw in the towel at Tottenham, he would not be short of offers with Real Madrid and Manchester United potentially interested in his services and could provide him with not only increased wages, but also a transfer war chest.

However, the former Spurs midfielder believes there is a reason why Pochettino is still at the club because he loves the project but admitted that he feels the manager has not been backed by the hierachy in the way he may have believed ahead of the start of the new season.
