Spanish football expert gives update on Pochettino’s future with Spurs

Mauricio Pochettino

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague delivered some good news for Tottenham Hotspur supporters, when writing his latest column for BBC Sport.

The Spaniard suggested that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is likely to stay with the north London club and enjoy their new home for many years to come.

The Argentine boss was heavily linked to leave Tottenham with both Real Madrid and Manchester United touted as possible destination.

Following the appointment of Zinedine Zidane at Madrid and Ole Gunnar Solkjaer at United, it is expected that the Argentine will remain with Tottenham, according to Balague.

Balague wrote for BBC Sport:

“With Real Madrid and Manchester United now out of the equation, the talk is that Juventus, Inter and Bayern Munich have studied the possibility of luring Pochettino away from Spurs.

“If any one of the three feel that is the way ahead, they would need to find something in the region of £30m-£40m to stand any chance of prising him away from Levy. That would constitute a big risk and big money that most clubs would probably rather be spent on players than coaches.

“Football shows us that one should never say never, and also that there is no point in worrying about things that are not in your hands. Maybe one of these three sides might decide to throw all their eggs into a Pochettino basket. The most likely scenario, however, is that he will stay at Spurs and enjoy their new home.”

Whilst Balague’s column on Pochettino is good news for the club, but the next six weeks could well define his future with Spurs.

Up next for Tottenham after their defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, is a home clash against Crystal Palace tonight, in what will be their first game in their magnificent new stadium.
