The Pochettino Guessing Game

The guessing game continues with conflicting stories over the future of Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino.

The Pochettino Guessing Game


This is like the Gareth Bale sage all over again, there were those of us who knew he was going and those who simply refused to believe it. The same seems to be going on with the press over Pochettino.

On the same day stories are printed that the 42 year-old Argentinian may reject Tottenham, an impossibility if he isn't even offered the job, due to a boardroom split, an unverified picture also emerges on Twitter of him at Hotspur Way, Tottenham's training ground.

People will read what they want to read into this, whatever fits their interpretation of events. In any interview process for a new manager, as with a new player, you show them the facilities. I don't take this as a definite indication that Pochettino is the next Spurs boss, merely that he is in the running and if offered it, will take it.

Football is about money and Tottenham have a bigger income of the two clubs, Financial Fair Play rules mean an owner can't just simply pump money in, they can't use their money on the playing side, wages, players etc. They can only use it on infrastructure.

Managers want to progress the same as players so if Tottenham make an offer he finds acceptable and you'd expect wages not to be an issue then he'd say yes.
