It is no secret that Manchester United would like Mauricio Pochettino to be their next permanent manager but Teddy Sheringham urges the Argentine boss to stay put at Tottenham Hotspur.
Sheringham, a legendary figure at both Old Trafford and White Hart Lane had left the Spurs back in 1997 in search of silverware. After winning 3 Premier League titles, one FA Cup trophy and the UEFA Champions League the Englishman returned to North London.
However, the 52-year-old believes that Pochettino does not need to turn his back on Tottenham. Speaking to Daily Mail, Sheringham was quoted – “I left Tottenham to join Manchester United in 1997 for one reason — ambition. The club was settling for mediocrity at the time and I did not like it. It was as simple as that. Now Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with United — but he has no reason to leave. He is at an ambitious club now, a club that is going places.”
“Tottenham are on the up, on and off the field. They have a tremendous team and in Harry Kane, they have one of the best strikers in the world. The club have Kane and Kane has Pochettino.”
“Why would either want to leave? Or need to leave? They are doing well in the league, they will soon move into a fantastic new stadium and the team is getting better and better under Pochettino. It is a completely different set-up to the one I left.”
“Yes, you could argue that United are the biggest club in the world and if Pochettino is only interested in money then obviously United might appeal, but I don’t think it is about money with him.”
“He is ambitious, he is developing a great team and he is not afraid to bring in young players. He has a great eye for a player.”
