Mauricio Pochettino is furious with the board and wants to change his job title to coach rather than manager.
Tottenham Hotspur manager was raging with the board after the victory over Real Madrid. The Argentinian says he has no control in transfers whatsoever and is forced to leave the off-field duty to the board and chairman Daniel Levy.
The third pre-season game saw the Champions League runners-up eliminate Los Blancos out of the Audi Cup, but the manager is not happy with the board by venting out his frustrations on Tuesday.
Spurs broke the bank for Tanguy Ndombele earlier this window, but is in dark over the further incomings.
The manager, who swerved questions regarding the future of Danny Rose, said: “I am not in charge and I know nothing about the situation of my players. I am only coaching them and trying to get the best from them.
“Sell, buy players, sign contract, not sign contract – I think it is not in my hands, it’s in the club’s hands and [chairman] Daniel Levy. The club need to change my title and description. Of course I am the boss deciding the strategic play, but in another area I don’t know. Today, I feel like I am the coach.”
Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen started the game against the Spanish giants despite exit rumours. Spurs are wanting to resolve full-back problem with some acquisition in the transfer market.
The 47-year-old was linked with the vacant managerial opening at Manchester United post Mourinho sacking. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was the short-term solution, with a string of consistent results in the first three months saw him become the permanent Red Devils manager.
Even though Bayern Munich have backed Niko Kovac to succeed at Allianz Arena, their interest in former Southampton manager cannot be brought into dubiety.
Here’s how Twitter has reacted..
“I am not in charge, I know nothing about the situation of my players.” 👀

‘Maybe the club need to change my title description now, because my job now is to coach the team.’

Mauricio Pochettino has been the pulling power in the transfer and the club needs to use him to the fullest to achieve success. He has a contract until 2023 and an extortionate amount will be required to pluck him from the hands of Tottenham Hotspur to gain his managerial services.
