Mauricio Pochettino was in no mood to entertain certain questions from journalists following yesterday’s 1-0 win against Real Madrid.
The Argentinean was asked a series of questions about the future of Christian Eriksen through to potential new signings and Pochettino sent a message to supporters insisting that he is just a coach because he has no influence over transfers (The Sun).
Former Liverpool and Wales striker Dean Saunders sympathised with Pochettino on talkSPORT this morning and believes that the Spurs man is telling supporters not to blame him for the lack of transfer activity and they should instead be asking Daniel Levy.
Saunders believes that Pochettino is frustrated and cannot understand the structure where such decisions rest with the board rather than the manager.
Despite the fact that Spurs have broken their club-record transfer fee this summer with the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon along with a deal for Leeds United’s Jack Clarke, transfer activity since has been non-existent and the start of the Premier League season is just around the corner.
“He’s saying he’s not happy.” ?
“Some of these owners don’t get it.” ?♂️
“He’s a bit more touchy & telling fans to point the finger at the board.” ?
