Carragher Raves – Gives His Honest Verdict On Mauricio Pochettino And Tottenham Title Credentials

Published

on

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has found support from unexpected quarters. Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has weighed into the discussion over reported interest from Real Madrid and has indicated that the Argentine is far better a coach than what he is given credit for.

Writing for the Telegraph, Carragher believes that Pochettino is on the verge of creating something special at Tottenham and that Spurs will do well by managing to hold on to the Argentine and give him all the support he deserves.

That is some praise, considering the fact that Zidane has already won two Champions League trophies, a La Liga and the World Club Championship in less than two years at Madrid compared to Pochettino who has won nothing in eight years as manager.

Carragher says that no Spurs fan would want Pochettino to leave the club and that he completely understands their emotions. He even goes ahead and says that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez may come hunting for Pochettino’s signature if Zidane continues to falter.

The former Liverpool legend seems to have been impressed by our win over Real Madrid in the Champions League and feels that it was like a “statement performance” from a side that is the best trophy-less team that he has ever seen.

But, will the fans be happy at being called that, or do we really want to see tournaments being won? Obviously, the latter because there is no joy in football than to see the club we support lift titles.

Tottenham are making every effort to make sure that they challenge for titles. Retaining star players like Dele Alli and Harry Kane is a basic step. Carragher feels that retaining them is vital for the club to inculcate a winning mentality.

Carragher also goes on to say that Pochettino’s greatness lies in leaving a lasting legacy at Tottenham and that it is just a matter of time before he starts winning titles.

I am sure most of the fans would be happy with the effusive praise from Carragher but none of this matter if Pochettino ends up without titles at the White Hart Lane. He would be the first to concede that his tenure was a failure if he leaves Spurs, sometime in the future, without a title to his CV.

Go on and prove your worth Poch. The fans love you!
