Tottenham fans react to Mauricio Pochettino’s cryptic comments on future

Mauricio Pochettino seems to have transcended heroic status at Tottenham Hotspur. In the modern game it is rare to find a manager who commands such unanimous respect throughout the club, re-enforcing a dwindling concept that no player is above the manager.

He is the star of the show, the beating heart and the the genius behind an incredible few years in north London, but is he in it for the long haul?

Discussion over his future has been prevalent throughout the season, particularly in light of Jose Mourinho’s dismissal at Manchester United and, with the season edging towards a potentially historic conclusion for Spurs, that discussion is coming to the fore once again.

The Argentine has publicly addressed the topic this week, with his comments hinting that Daniel Levy’s long-term strategy will dictate his future, per football.london.

“I am not open to start a new chapter with no plan, no clear idea and not being transparent, telling you and telling our fans what next, what is our objective, to stop talking about perception, about reality.”

If we’re reading between the lines it’s fair to conclude that Pochettino is subtly alluding to the stadium fiasco which clouded much of the season so far.

But looking beyond that there is certainly a feeling that he has taken the club as far as it can go within the remits of his current transfer budget, so he will be hoping Levy can propose a coherent long-term plan to ensure Spurs continue their exponential rise.

In response to the report, Spurs fans turned out in serious numbers on Twitter to offer their views on his cryptic comments.

Plenty of fans were in agreement that the ball is now in Levy’s court and he simply must break tradition by splashing the cash in the transfer market to keep the 47-year-old at the helm.

And one fan even suggested that Pochettino will walk away from the job if Levy expects him to instantly lead the club to Premier League glory after handing him a massive transfer budget.

Clearly, this is an emotionally-charged subject and the upcoming summer window is going to be incredibly intriguing for the Champions League finalists.

Here’s what the Spurs fans had to say about their magic manager’s comments…
