Tim Sherwood shared his views on Mauricio Pochetino’s position at Tottenham.
The former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood opens up on the recent speculations regarding Mauricio Pochetino’s sacking because of Spurs’s poor performance this season and his changed behavior since returning this summer.
Tim believes Tottenham will not sack the Argentinian manager ‘in a million years’ regardless of the low performance that Lilywhites are giving to their fans.
Sherwood managed the club for about five months before Pochetino’s appointment in May 2014. He has a firm belief that the Argentinian job is safe at Spurs and is confident that Pochetino is the right one to get Lilywhites back on the track.
Lilywhites have been in a woeful form since giving the difficult start to the campaign. They managed to win three out of ten games so far. The performance reached down the lower form over the past week. Spurs lost to Bayern Munich with a 7-2 score in the Champions League following a 3-0 defeat to the Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League.
The defeat to the Seagulls take the Spurs to sit ninth in the Table, awfully keeping them behind the leaders Liverpool in just eight games
Sherwood said in an interview,
“Daniel Levy [Tottenham’s chairman] is one of the most astute men in football; do you think he in his right mind will sack Mauricio Pochettino?
“He has got so much credit in the bank with that football club. There is no way he will sack Mauricio Pochettino, not in a million years.
Now if Mauricio decides he has had enough and he can take the club no further and he wants to move on to pastures new, then I still think he is mad to do that. I think he is the man for the job. I don’t want to him leave. I love the guy, I love the football club.
“Everything is great [at Tottenham]. Everything is going brilliantly for Tottenham but they have to get over this bump in the road. Every club has it.
“I still believe they will qualify for the Champions League knockout stages and I still believe, at 5/4, it is great money for them to finish in the top four this season.
Spurs under the region of Mauricio Pochetino has a successful campaign where they managed to reach the major European final. The team is just three points behind the top four. Time is still in their hands where the players and managers can change the attitude and come back in their original form.
