Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino free to join other clubs as gardening leave ends
As per a report from The Telegraph, former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is now completely free to take up a new job at other clubs after his gardening leave came to an end. This would mean Tottenham will not be getting any compensation from the Argentine’s potential new employers once they sign him.
Pochettino took over the reins at Tottenham in 2014 and kickstarted a new era at our club. Under the former Espanyol and Southampton boss, our club became title challengers as well as a regular fixture in the UEFA Champions League.
In fact, Pochettino led us to the finals of European football’s premier competition last season. However, it ended on a disappointing note as Liverpool defeated Spurs to lift the trophy.
Pochettino and Tottenham failed to build on those heights this season though. And a disappointing start to the 2019/20 campaign led to the Argentine’s sacking with Jose Mourinho replacing him in the Spurs’ hotseat.
Since leaving Spurs, Pochettino has been without a job. While he was free to join a new club, the interested party would have had to pay Tottenham a compensation fee and negotiate with Daniel Levy as he the Argentine was on gardening leave. (h/t The Telegraph)
However, as of this Monday – a day after the 2019/20 Premier League campaign was scheduled to end, clubs are now free to sign Pochettino without having to deal with Tottenham. (h/t The Telegraph)
