Twitter reacts to Mauricio Pochettino’s Arsenal remarks

Mauricio Pochettino is one of Tottenham’s best managers in the Premier League era. The Argentine took a promising set of players and built a Spurs team that consistently qualified for the UEFA Champions League.

Given the quality of the Premier League and his team’s lack of significant investment, it is a remarkable achievement.

Speaking on ‘in the Pink’ Podcast (Sky Sports), Pochettino touched upon his Tottenham side finishing above Arsenal being part of his legacy at the club. The comment has split opinion between fans while also garnering ridicule from opposition fans.

Mauricio Pochettino took Tottenham to their first-ever UEFA Champions League final

A number of Spurs fans felt it was a low bar for the former boss to set given the lack of trophies. A large section, however, acknowledged the achievement of finishing above their fierce rivals for the first time in over 20 years.

Tottenham finished above Arsenal thrice in Pochettino’s last five full seasons in charge, the first being in 2017. The last time the club managed to do this was back in 1995.

The Argentine also led the club to our first ever UEFA Champions League final where we fell agonizingly short to Liverpool.

Spurs may not have won any trophies under Pochettino, but what he has done is make Tottenham relevant in English and European football again. The relevance of that achievement should not be downplayed considering the years Spurs spent in the mid-table.

A number of Tottenham fans took to Twitter to express their support to the manager. We take a look at some of the Tweets below.
