In a recent interview with Canal+ (via Football.London), Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko has revealed that Mauricio Pochettino might not be in charge of Spurs next season when he said, “At the end of the season, it could be that they have a new project, that a new coach comes, and he doesn’t count on me, he wants to sell me.
“Many different things could happen. But for the moment I feel good there, I am happy there. And in my head I have no thoughts of leaving.”
The French midfielder’s recent revelation will worry a lot of Tottenham supporters as they eagerly await their team’s destiny in the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool which is set to be held at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid on June 1st.
Despite whatever transpires in the final, it seems like Pochettino could be on his way out of North London with Juventus, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain all ready to battle for his services this summer (via Football.London).
Pochettino’s Impressive Managerial Record At North London
The Argentine head coach has taken charge of 275 matches for Tottenham so far, winning 155, drawing 54 and losing 66 of those games in multiple competitions. He also has a healthy PPG (Points Per Game) average of 1.89 to his name thus far (Stats taken from Transfermrkt).
The Argentine Manager’s Incredible Job At Spurs With Limited Resources
Since arriving from Southampton in the summer of 2014, Pochettino has done remarkably well to transform Spurs from Premier League mediocrity to Champions League finalists over the past half decade.
The Argentine manager has been restricted in the transfer market as he has struggled to get the financial backing from the club in the past few transfer windows. Thus, considering the difficult circumstances, he has done an incredible job to help Tottenham reach the pinnacle of European football on such a tight budget.
At 47, the South American tactician is relatively young when compared to his colleagues, which means that he can build a dynasty at an elite club if given the financial backing in the transfer market.
Why Pochettino’s Departure Will Be A Hammer Blow For Tottenham
The fact remains that Pochettino is currently one of the best managers in European football so his departure will be a massive blow for the North London outfit heading into the new season.
