Former manager names three Tottenham stars who Pochettino knows won’t stay next season

Mauricio Pochettino knows three players are leaving in the summer

Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood believes that Mauricio Pochettino knows three players are leaving next summer.

Tottenham continued their poor form this season after losing in the Carabao Cup to Colchester United on penalties.

Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli all featured in the cup tie, but we couldn’t score in regular time against the League Two side.

Sherwood was speaking on the Debate and claimed that the uncertainty surrounding three players is causing problems. Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen are free agents at the end of the season.

The former Tottenham manager added that Pochettino knows that the trio will leave (h/t Express):

“He certainly knows three of them are not [staying].

“By the looks of it, Christian Eriksen, [Toby] Alderweireld and [Jan] Vertonghen are going for nothing, which will hurt the club.

“It’s not good [for the dressing room].”

Sherwood added that the trio has to play well to seal a move to a bigger club. However, the former manager claimed that Pochettino has to start looking at immediate concerns:

“But the team knows, and Mauricio knows, that they’re not going to be around next year, and maybe he’s looking at the long-term. But he should be looking at the short-term.”

Spurs need to get things back on track

The summer saw Spurs sign four players, with one of them heading back on loan to Leeds. However, they all have had some problems with injuries or playing time.

That has affected Pochettino’s team selection to an extent, with Ryan Sessegnon not playing a single minute for us.

Giovani Lo Celso didn’t even get a start before a hip injury ruled him out until October, while Tanguy Ndombele has had his problems too.

Losing Eriksen, Alderweireld and Vertonghen in a single window would be a blow to Spurs, and finding quality replacements won’t be easy either.

Our form this season is a major concern at the moment and the trio needs to be in the right state of mind as the campaign progresses.

Pochettino has a big job on his hands now, and cannot afford further poor performances.
