With the current run of form Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy had no option but to sack the manager on the evening of 19 November 2019
Some Spurs fans expected Poch to be sacked at some point after several ‘clear the air’ meetings, the team was not the same, the manager needed new players that will have give the team a much needed boost.
It is believed Pochettino wanted to release some players and replace them with better players, a couple of them players would have done much better ar Old Trafford namely Erickson and even Rose who are both very good players.
Mauricio Pochettino done some good things with Spurs and we felt he deserved better, we can understand that the club now with this mega stadium needs to be a little more careful where buying players is concerned, however without a great team that will get into the Champions League every season they will not be making as much money as they could be making.
This morning 20 November only hours of Pochettino getting the sack Levy appoints Jose Mourinho as manager until 2023
If Spurs end up near the bottom at the end of the season although unlikley they face the dangers of sponsors pulling out which would be a disaster for the club, Nike could pull the plug although it is expected many fans would not cry about that! AIA have just extended the deal to be on front of Tottenham shirts.
Chairman, Daniel Levy, said:
“We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the Board has taken lightly, nor in haste.
“Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.
“It falls to the Board to make the difficult decisions – this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with Mauricio and his coaching staff – but we do so in the Club’s best interests.
“Mauricio and his coaching staff will always be part of our history. I have the utmost admiration for the manner in which he dealt with the difficult times away from a home ground whilst we built the new stadium and for the warmth and positivity he brought to us. I should like to thank him and his coaching staff for all they have contributed. They will always be welcome here.
“We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters.”
Jose Mourinho despite getting sacked as Manchester United manager won a fair bit with the club however could not bring any Premier League wins and fans got frustrated with the ‘Parking the bus’ philosophy and buying players that did not fit in.
Spurs fans will have to understand the defensive ways of Mourinho, although as ever it is expected the players will be wanting to impress the manager short term, fans will start to see the team slowly becoming more defence minded.
It is also likely some Manchester United players may end up at Spurs if any approaches are made by Mourinho although Ole will only sell players like Pogba who really does not want to be at United, Pogba though is more likely to head for Europe.
Some Manchester United fans are hoping Pochettino is unvailed as the new manager of Manchester United, this would make sense to us also, weird things happen in football and Ed Woodward needs to get Pochettino who will bring success at Manchester United rather than keep Ole who could be kept as an assistant or stay at United in some capacity if he wanted to.
Daniel Levy said on the appointment of Jose Mourinho:
“I am excited to be joining a Club with such a great heritage and such passionate supporters. The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me. Working with these players is what has attracted me.”
