Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, former Arsenal striker John Hartson has had his say on what the future holds for Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The pressure certainly appears to be building on the Argentine following a disastrous few weeks in which they have been knocked out of the Carabao Cup by a team in League Two, and beaten 7-2 by Bayern Munich on their own patch in the Champions League.
While the former Southampton boss has to take some of the flak when things don’t go right on the pitch, you can’t help but feel that the uncertainty over a number of key players’ futures is having an impact – something Harry Kane has hinted at in recent times.

Hartson believes that Pochettino is still a popular manager among Europe’s elite clubs despite his failure to do one thing during his spell in north London, and foresees a scenario where he could choose to move on should one of those sides approach Spurs over his availability.
The Welshman said: “A club could come for Poch tomorrow. And all of a sudden, he thinks well, maybe I’m not appreciated at Spurs and I’m not getting the credit I deserve.
“He’s a very good manager and one of the superclubs could come in for him. But there is this feeling around the football fraternity that he needs to win a trophy.”
Those Tottenham supporters need to consider that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side, and perhaps they would be better off keeping the faith with the man who has brought them on leaps and bounds since his appointment in 2014.
