Will be another Italian...we can't seem to see past Italian managers. Sarri is here to stay for at least one more season which would hopefully see him have a team with a better set of midfielders.

Juve fans in general wouldn't be satisfied with any coach except Zidane and we won't get him. Juve should get a coach with potential to be good.

Poch improved Spurs from midtable to top 4 and made them relevant in CL. The important thing with a coach is to see if he improves his team. I'm not bothered with his comments, thats simply mind games to alleviate pressure from his players. Here he'd become a winner.
No he didn't. He improved them from 5th on average to 4th on average. He did leave them midtable tho.

He also let Leicester win the PL. He let Conte's Chelsea win it before him when they were 10th the year before. And he was eliminated A LOT of times by lower league or lower half of table teams in their cups.

Idk how you can be not bothered with his comments when we have an older version of him sitting on our bench. Loser, professional excuse maker, puppet for their owner.

Spurs has a worse loser culture than Arsenal. Look at Conte with Inter. Besides the season Leicester won it every top club failed too.

Yes his comments, for example, that trophies only build ego are mind games imo.

I’m somewhat surprised at the level of animosity towards Pochettino.

There can be little doubt that he has been a success at Tottenham since his appointment a few years ago. His performance has to be assessed against a backdrop of how difficult it for the 13 managers/coaches In the last 10 years to operate with a board that has a worldwide reputation for niggardliness when it comes to funding the transfer market. The turnover of managers over the last two decades prior to his arrival shows how recklessly impatient the board were in hiring and firing managers who did their utmost to improve results, but having to do so with with a board that were world leaders in cheeseparing, leaving managers with a real problem in improving the squad when compared to the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and the two Manchester clubs

During his reign at White Hart Lane he has been a conspicuous success in transforming the fortunes of the club on the playing field. It was Pochettino who transformed their fortunes on the playing field thanks to his tactical shrewdness as well as his success in attracting decent players.
