Pochettino opens up on Spurs tenure

Mauricio Pochettino has talked about his time at  Tottenham Hotspur.

The Argentine was sacked last winter and has been out of a job since. Pochettino had done a brilliant job in his 5 and a half years at Spurs but failed to win a trophy.

Spurs twice finished as runners up in the Premier League and reached the final of the Champions League last May. However, a poor start to the current campaign saw him get replaced by Jose Mourinho.

In an interview with El Pais, Pochettino said: ‘We live in a result-based industry where it seems that all the factors that maintain good results are the ones that work.

‘But how do you measure what works or not? Is it just the team who wins or the one who exceeds expectations?

‘After the Champions League final, four years in the top four, two years without signing, a different management strategy was needed.

‘Sometimes the vision of the coaching staff is not accepted by the club management.’

Pochettino added: ‘We anticipated what could happen. You need to fall, be down and then go up.

‘But Tottenham made the decision to separate us after five and a half years. I understand that it is a long time.’
