“They start to regret Pochettino,” Ginola makes bold claim after speaking with Spurs fans
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham legend, David Ginola says some of the club’s fans regret the ousting of Mauricio Pochettino as manager.

The Argentinian is arguably the most lovable manager we’ve had in the last decade.

He didn’t win trophies, but Spurs played beautiful football and looked like they were building towards something great.

However, he lost his job months after leading the club to the Champions League final in 2019.

After watching Jose Mourinho’s terrible style of play with no trophies and the current football being played under Nuno Espirito Santo, some Lilywhites’ fans will happily take Poch back.

But he manages PSG now and has the chance to win the French Ligue 1 this season.

Ginola says he has spoken to some fans and they have expressed frustrations over the departure of Poch and how much they miss him.

“They start to regret Pochettino,” said Ginola on Sky Sports as quoted by HITC

“I bump into Spurs fan the other day and they said ‘we regret (sacking) Pochettino.’

“‘He was great. Okay, he didn’t win anything with us, but he was in the process of building something great for the club. We played great football. And we enjoyed it’.

“I think you need to be patient. But patience isn’t a word you use in football, right now.”

Nuno Santo is leading a Spurs team that cannot get Kane to score goals regularly and if that continues, he could lose his job before this season ends, because the team has so few goals when he isn’t contributing his quota.

In fairness CL apart the football in the last 12 months of Poch reign was best forgotten… ultimately we never found suitable replacements for Walker & Dembele…. Poch isn’t without blame tho.. playing a 1/4 fit kane in the Cl final while leaving out Moura was criminal… having said that had Poch of been properly backed in the market we likely wouldnt be where we are now

The Moura champions league final is the biggest myth in football. He had his moment in the semi final but to suggest we would have won the cl if he’d started is just a stick to beat Poch with. Likewise if he’d started Moura and we’d lost there would loads of people saying Poch made the wrong selection. Last season Moura scored 3 league goals and to date this has yet to register. He’s an above average player but wouldnt get a game at the top 4 sides.

Poch like Jol, Redknapp and AVB before were let down by Levy. All four had the chance to advance the club but their transfer targets were either ignored as too expensive and they were forced to take cheaper options or in the case of the two transfer window no one at all.
Despite massive unemployment in the managerial market it is hard to see why any talented manager would want to work for Levy. Hence why Potter, a potentially very good manager, felt it better to work for Tony Bloom at Brighton, a chairman who backs and supports his managers rather than Levy who discards them to save his skin.

The grass wasn’t greener because Levy had made sure a pipe of toxic waste contaminated the ground from beneath. Poch had reached the end of what he could offer. He had nothing else to give and I wont forgive Levy for setting him up and selling him down the river.
