The issue of leave which had approached Argentine manager, Mauricio Pochettino during that period, with a number of European giants being linked to him, but until now the fact was that he still remained at Tottenham. So, does Pochettino really plan to last a long time at Spurs? Some claim the coach will follow in Wenger’s footsteps when dealing with Arsenal, in this regard Pochettino cannot argue.
Mauricio Pochettino, 46, has been working as manager of Tottenham Hotspur since 2014. Indeed before being appointed as the main coach of the Spurs, he was quite convincing when dealing with Southampton, where he was known as a manager who could maximize the potential of young players. Sure enough, with Pochettino, since then Tottenham has been transformed into one of the best teams in the Premier League by always finishing in the last four of the final standings.
Even more amazing than Pochettino is he managed to exploit the potential and talent possessed by a series of young club players ranging from Harry Kane, Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and several other names to achieve their maximum performance and continue to grow. No wonder, if Pochettino had been associated with large teams in the class of Real Madrid, Barcelona to Manchester United.
But in fact, five years has passed, the Argentine coach has remained at Tottenham, in this regard Pochettino is claimed to be planning to become the club’s legendary coach as Wenger did when he handled Arsenal for 22 years.
“I have high respect for Arsene Wenger. Because when people talk about their 22 years at a club like Arsenal, all the achievements occur in that period. For that you must be very good, not only become a trainer but channel the values that you have. ”
“That’s why there is a bit of sadness about the way he left his club. For us [manager] it’s not about business, but passion. For everything Arsene Wenger has dedicated to Arsenal, to end up like him, it’s a little unfair. I myself want or hope to be here for 20 years and have the opportunity to decide to leave or end my career here. But before that I need to ask him [Wenger]. If one day I have that opportunity, [to ask] is he happy with the way he ended his career, but I doubt it, “said Pochettino as quoted by Sky Sports News.
