According to The Telegraph, it is ‘business as usual’ at Tottenham Hotspur and manager Mauricio Pochettino retains the full support of chairman Daniel Levy despite a frustrating start to the season.
The pressure on the Argentine was ramped up following the shock 7-2 defeat at home to Bayern Munich on Tuesday – the first time they have conceded that many goals at home in a competitive fixture in their history.
It followed on from disappointing performances against Olympiacos, Leicester City and Colchester United – who knocked them out of the Carabao Cup – while they were also beaten at their new stadium by Newcastle United, who were thrashed 5-0 on their travels against Leicester at the weekend.
Nevertheless, The Telegraph report that the 47-year-old will continue to receive the full support of Levy, who is confident he can turn things around and qualify from their Champions League group, and secure a top-four finish in the Premier League.
Tuesday night may have been a shock and Pochettino has got quite a few decisions wrong so far this season, but he has also been working in difficult circumstances given the contract situations of some of the players who have been so key for him over the years.
Things aren’t great at the moment, but the former Southampton boss has surely earned the time to turn things around given how far he has brought the north London club forward since his appointment in 2014.
That said, a poor performance and result against Brighton on Saturday could be interesting.
