There really isn’t much that can dampen the mood of the Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern right now, even with their huge clash with Manchester City on the horizon. After a stunning run of form, our north London locals are absolutely delighted and feel they can win at the Etihad for the second year in a row.
Mauricio Pochettino’s good work at White Hart Lane is celebrated often and loudly amongst the Spurs-mad punters and they firmly believe the Argentine is the best manager the club have had in years. Which is why reports in the Daily Mail yesterday caused concern amongst them.
While it must be said the bulk of the story centres around Spurs’ signing of both his sons in different capacities (hinting at a long-term project), they do also carry quotes from Argentine outlet La Nacion, with the ex-Southampton coach talking about his plans for the future.
He’s revealed that while he is committed to the cause right now, he does harbour aspirations of coaching both the Argentine national side and Newell’s Old Boys, the team he started his career with.
The 44-year-old also made 20 international appearances for La Albiceleste during his playing days and has revealed he one day hopes to coach them.
‘At my age I like to be involved in the day-to-day,’ said Pochettino to La Nacion (via the Daily Mail.)
‘I do not have short-term aspirations to coach Argentina.
‘Maybe yes in the long run, because my two dreams are to train Newell’s and the national team.’
