Thus, rounds of speculations were formed around Tottenham sacking Pochettino in the midst of this season. To confirm the details, club Chairman Daniel Levy, said:
“We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the Board has taken lightly, nor in haste. “Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.
“It falls to the Board to make the difficult decisions – this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with Mauricio and his coaching staff – but we do so in the Club’s best interests.
“Mauricio and his coaching staff will always be part of our history. I have the utmost admiration for the manner in which he dealt with the difficult times away from a home ground whilst we built the new stadium and for the warmth and positivity he brought to us.
“I should like to thank him and his coaching staff for all they have contributed. They will always be welcome here. “We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters.”
Pochettino joined Spurs in 2014 and brought them to the prominence after rebuilding the squad by bringing the stars like Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli.
Meanwhile, the Argentine manager has been linked with several job offers but his future action is still remained to see, as he is yet to give a public statement after this. Whereas, as of now, Spurs is expected to have a caretaker manager for the time being.
