Pochettino lands another dig at Spurs hierarchy

Mauricio Pochettino continues to aim thinly-veiled gibes at the Tottenham Hotspur board.

Pochettino is widely regarded as the number one long-term choice for the Real Madrid manager’s job, vacated by Julen Lopetegui during the week.

That possibility could edge closer to reality the more Pochettino feels his level of ambition is not being matched by the Spurs hierarchy.

“We are working tomorrow to win games but if you are not preparing the team or the squad or planning for future and after you spend four and a half years here like me, you will fail,” the Argentine said at his pre-match press conference.

“Always we think today and tomorrow and I think this is most important, I work like I am going to be here all my career.

“That is why it is difficult to see the big picture and I feel responsible to not only come here but to work and live.”

When Pochettino was asked what he thought of Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville’s assessment of how his performance has been in charge at Spurs, the Argentinian claimed to not have seen or heard the appraisal.
“I promise I don’t have time to listen to questions about if I achieve – when you don’t win you are frustrated but the players are too, you want to win and when you lose you need to try and create a good feeling, it is difficult to keep motivation with energy to achieve.”
Pochettino takes his Tottenham team for a late kick-off game at Wolves this Saturday.
Spurs lost 1-0 at home to Manchester City on Monday and Saturday’s trip to Molineux will not be an easy three points for the London team either.
