Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino talks about his relationship with Spurs CEO Daniel Levy
Mauricio Pochettino’s return to Tottenham, the club where he left an indelible mark, marks a significant moment. His departure in November 2019 was a pivotal event in both his career and the club’s history. Now, as he prepares to face his former team with Chelsea, Pochettino reflected on his relationship with Daniel Levy.
Pochettino’s words shed light on the genuine respect that exists between him and Levy. Despite the ups and downs they experienced during their nearly six years working together, there is an underlying appreciation for what they achieved.
The two share a history filled with remarkable moments. Under Pochettino’s guidance, Tottenham underwent a transformation. They consistently challenged for the Premier League title, became regular contenders in the UEFA Champions League, and successfully transitioned to a new £1 billion stadium.
Here is what Poch had to say about Levy via BBC:
“We are very respectful and he sent a text when I signed here, wishing the best to me and everyone.”
“We need to be natural. Nearly six years working together, how many things happened in six years? Good and not so good.”
“We are responsible for our relationship. We cannot now forget our relationship in a period which was very important in our careers and for the club.”
Pochettino’s return is an opportunity to revisit the past while focusing on the present. The text message from Levy when Pochettino joined Chelsea is a testament to the respect they have for each other. It symbolizes a desire for the best, not just for themselves but also for their respective clubs.

For both Pochettino and Levy, their journey together was instrumental in achieving unprecedented success for Tottenham. It’s a history that includes thrilling highs, like Champions League nights at their new stadium, and moments of tension and transition.
