“Pochettino is Arsene Wenger 2.0”: Former Arsenal star heaps praise on the Tottenham boss



Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown believes that Mauricio Pochettino could remain at Tottenham for a long time, comparing him to Arsene Wenger.

The former Gunners manager was replaced after a lengthy spell by Unai Emery, however, the Frenchman stuck with the club through thick and thin, and left at the end of last season.

Pochettino has been linked with the job at Manchester United (h/t Metro) even though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has replaced Jose Mourinho until the end of the season.

Writing for the Daily Mail (h/t Metro) Keown believed Poch had a project at Spurs and that the club is doing well too:

“He is part of a project at Tottenham and he’s moving into a brand new home. He has confidence because he knows two of the world’s best clubs are potentially pursuing him in Manchester United and Real Madrid.

“He’s nurtured players superbly, such as Dele Alli and Harry Kane. Tottenham are on the toes of Liverpool and Manchester City, who are performing as well as we’ve ever seen in the Premier League.”

The former defender believed only something special could take Poch away from the club, and claimed that the Argentine could use this opportunity to get more funds from Daniel Levy, before comparing him to the former Arsenal manager.

“Pochettino, to me, is Arsene Wenger 2.0. Wenger was the pioneer. He had a hand in everything, from changing facilities at the training ground to the new stadium. We’re seeing that with Pochettino.

“If he doesn’t go now, then I don’t see him going for a very long time. Tottenham just need to win a trophy. It is very important they fulfil that success.”

Spurs haven’t had a lot of luck when it comes to trophies under Poch and hopefully, that changes quickly.
