Pochettino hits breakthrough as Spurs agree defender deal, move expected

Though Mauricio Pochettino has firmly established himself as the darling of White Hart Lane during his two-year tenure in charge of Spurs, it’s not all been plain sailing. 

Noted for his transfer strategy, it’s easy to forget that even the best coaches can get things wrong in the treacherous waters of the market.

One glaring example of a Poch plot gone wrong is a certain Federico Fazio.

The Argentine defender was one of the first arrivals following the 44-year old’s move from Southampton, though largely failed to impress during his first season.

Instantly loaned back to former club Sevilla, the 29-year old is reportedly set for another move away from White Hart Lane.

According to the Daily Mail, Serie A giants Roma are closing in on a loan move for Argentina international, with a view to make the deal a permanent one for next season.

I Giallorossi are understood to be ready to pay £3.4m next summer, making it a huge loss for those in North London, who paid £8m for the star.

How much of a flop was Fazio? Poch’s worst signing? Let us know below…
