Jamie Redknapp explains what he admires about Spurs boss Pochettino


Tottenham boss Pochettino looks to be going about things in the right way.

Spurs are currently on the upwards path under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino, and Jamie Redknapp has told Sky Sports that there is a lot to admire about the work the Argentine coach has done at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp said: “There's a lot to admire about them [Tottenham] - and that is down to the manager. Pochettino has got them fit and organised. He's given them some real discipline in how they play, the young players have bought into what he wants and I've been very impressed.”

Pochettino arrived at Spurs from Southampton as a coach known for his work on the physical side of the game, and his desire to bring through youth.

Rather than changing his managerial style to fit into Tottenham’s methodology, Pochettino has gone about changing the club to his philosophy, and there is a long-term plan now in place at White Hart Lane.

He has built a dedicated squad of youth players, and based his tactical system around organisation and solidity, with his players fitter and more energetic than every other team.

It is this work that has Spurs playing so well this season, with them sitting in sixth place the Premier League table after just one loss, and with the joint best defensive record in the league.

Pochettino has instilled a confidence in Spurs that has been lacking for a number of years, and with the turbulent nature of the Premier League, it appears as if this could be the season that Tottenham break back into the top four.
