Pochettino’s greatest press conference hits in one handy show reel.
This compilation of course includes the frankly peculiar first meeting with Daniel Levy who was barefoot and in pyjamas.
There’s ‘that’ reference to Harry Kane’s wedding vegetables, the obligatory smatterings of ‘I am so happy’, plus some box set binging.
Given the extraordinary restraints and resultant frustrations the old girl has had to endure, it’s a credit to the gaffer’s professionalism that he is still smiling.
Should Levy fail to get solid, ready to go players over the line in the next few weeks and the milk at Tottenham will turn sour, super quick.
