Mauricio Pochettino has no desire to walk away from Tottenham despite exit rumours
Alasdair Gold has shut down rumours of Mauricio Pochettino having a bust-up with Daniel Levy and leaving Tottenham.
The Argentine has seen Spurs struggle for consistency this season after making the Champions League final in the previous campaign.
Spurs are in danger of missing out on the top four unless results change and rumours had suggested that the Argentine had “stormed out of the club after a major fallout with Daniel Levy” (h/t Football.london).
However, Gold claims that there isn’t much actually going on at Spurs due to the international break. Pochettino has been working with a few players left behind and some youngsters too (h/t Football.london):
“Pochettino and his staff have been working with those players not involved in international duty, the likes of Erik Lamela, Dele Alli, Lucas Moura, Eric Dier and Paulo Gazzaniga, supplemented by some of the younger players from the academy, including 16-year-old Spanish midfielder Yago Santiago who got his first taste of first team life last week.”
The Football.london correspondent added that Pochettino is closer to Levy than any previous manager during the chairman’s time at the club.
Poch and Levy also have their offices in the same section of the Enfield training complex, and the Argentine isn’t looking to leave Spurs soon (h/t Football.london):
“There’s no indication that he’s looking to walk away from the struggles at Tottenham right now, particularly with the upcoming January transfer window providing an opportunity to put things right.”
No change expected at Spurs either
The journalist adds that there is no change expected and all eyes are on the London derby against West Ham.
Spurs need to pick up a win over the Hammers and that could be the springboard to get the season going.
