Mauricio Pochettino has quite a bit of time on his hands at the moment since getting the sack at Tottenham, and he went to visit his old club Newell’s Old Boys at the end of last week. He wasn’t given the goodbye that he probably deserved at Spurs with him not able to say goodbye to the players in person.
Despite leaving the team in 14th, he turned Spurs into a team who qualified for the Champions League for four years running and, of course, took them to a final. His statement to fans last week was heartfelt and it’s clear those supporters have just as much love for him.
Newell’s Old Boys tweeted a few pictures of their ex-player and presented him with a t-shirt, but the tweet was flooded by Spurs fans expressing just how much they miss him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Welcome home, Poch ❤️🖤 pic.twitter.com/DVSmrmfD1N

We owe this man more than we know. When the dust settles we will realise exactly how far Poch took us. Is just a shame he wasn’t able to finish the job. Definitely a club legend for me. Thank you Poch. #COYS #TTID.
