Why haven’t you left Tottenham? Other managers pose question to Poch

Tottenham finally ended their miserable run of form in September this weekend with a 2-1 win over Brighton on the south coast.

Before that, Tottenham had lost successive games to Watford, Liverpool and Inter Milan, leading two of the matches late on before throwing them away.

Tottenham became the first Premier League club in history not to buy a single player in the summer transfer window this year.

Many believe that the board and chairman should have backed Pochettino with some fresh talent to bolster the squad and take them to the next level.

This was particularly prevalent with the World Cup this year, and nine Tottenham first team stars returning after making it all the way to the semi finals.

Subsequently, these players have looked a little fatigued and sluggish so far this campaign, and some new blood could have been the ticket to mix things up a bit.

Apparently, some other managers have called into question why Pochettino is still at Spurs, insisting that he would be better treated elsewhere.

Guillem Balague, the ghost writer of Poch’s book Brave New World, told BBC Sport: “If I was Pochettino, I would be very frustrated with my current situation, having signed a new five-year contract in May.

“But after doing that and by giving Spurs another opportunity to put their faith in him right now – and vice versa – nobody owes anybody anything any more. Any other manager would probably have left already, and I know there are other bosses out there who have asked Pochettino why he is still there.”
