It has been an awful start to the 2019/20 campaign for Tottenham Hotspur and their manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Will Spurs finish in the top four?
The North London club have won just three of their opening eight Premier League matches, losing three and drawing two. Added to that, they have also made a poor start to their Champions League campaign and suffered a 7-2 hammering at the hands of Bayern Munich.
One person who believes the latter statement is Tony Cascarino, who drew parallels between the Argentine manager and former tennis player Tim Henman on talkSPORT recently.
He compared Pochettino’s lack of silverware to the former British number one, who famously never managed to win a Grand Slam in his tennis career.
Speaking live on air, he said: “Mauricio is the Tim Henman of football management. He got to the final last year and that was as good as it got.”
Several football fans have reacted to Cascarino’s statement, with some agreeing with the former Chelsea striker. Meanwhile, others were quick to defend Pochettino, with some pointing out that it was a little harsh, given that Henman never actually even made a major final.
Here are some of the best replies…
People are slating poch as if spurs were serial trophy winners before he became manager..
