Tottenham fans react as Darren Bent claims Mikel Arteta is a better manager than Mauricio Pochettino
Speaking on talkSPORT (h/t Metro), former Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent made a bizarre claim that current Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is a much better coach than ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
The former striker turned pundit cited Poch’s lack of trophies as a reason for his claim insisting that Arteta had won an FA Cup at Arsenal already. (h/t Metro)
“Arteta, for me, Arteta’s a better coach than Pochettino as well. You look at Spurs and what Pochettino did at Spurs and he took them to a level. When I say Pochettino’s greatest achievement at Spurs, people will say ‘He got them to a Champions League final’ but is that enough?”
The ex-Spurs forward also went on to claim that Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers was also a better manager than Pochettino.
Naturally, the fans, as well as some ex-Tottenham stars, did not respond well to the claim and lashed out on Bent on Twitter. And here are some of the reactions from the Tottenham faithful to Bent’s outrageous claim.
These clowns get paid to say this smh https://t.co/jQKhsgCCZy

If Bent is using ‘only getting to the Champs League final’ as a measuring stick, then what has Rodgers and Arteta done?

How is Arteta a better manager??? Poch got spurs into the top 4 season after season! Arsenal finished 8th last season and he has a worse record than Emery??

Poch took spurs from a club that hires managers like Tim SWood to a club that hires managers like Jose. Bent doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Him & Deeney are on to talk utter rubbish to wind people up & get clicks/view’s via SM for little 1 min clips. Clearly works mind.

Hahahaha ffs. Arteta been in the job less than a year. Don’t get me wrong football is a game of opinions, but the disrespect is astounding. Rodgers won as much as Pochettino at Liverpool and my nan could have managed Celtic to success in Scotland.

Ask Darren does he think Shinji Okazaki is a better footballer than Harry Kane? As according to his logic he would be

Darren Bent is obviously still a little sore about Sandra Redknapp being a better striker than him, so I wouldn’t listen to his Spurs’ opinions.
