Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that he fears being axed by Tottenham if their results don’t improve. The Lillywhites have endured a disappointing start to the season, having won only 3 of their total 12 games this season.
Tottenham have fallen 10 points behind league leaders Liverpool, following an impressive 2018/19 campaign where they finished as runners-up in the Champions League.
Pochettino was linked with Real Madrid and Manchester United jobs this summer but stayed put in London. However, he now fears to lose his jobs if his team doesn’t perform.
“If we don’t improve our performances and results, what is going to be the result? It’s always the same in football,” said Pochettino.
“I understand the business, I am 47.”
“Why do you think I don’t have white hair? Because I don’t pay attention to any of this.”
“I only pay attention to the fact that we need to improve our performances.”
“That is football,” he said.
“It is the same as when people praise you when you do well.”
“If you don’t perform as people expect, it’s normal. Football is always about winning today. What happened yesterday is gone.”
“Managers and coaches always need to win, today and tomorrow. Sometimes we think too far ahead. People sometimes say ‘Come on gaffer you are thinking too much’. But we need to think about today.”
