Gary Neville explains the change he has seen in Tottenham players

Gary Neville seems to be impressed with Mauricio Pochettino’s work at Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has explained in The Telegraph the change he has noticed in the Tottenham Hotspur players.

The former United defender works as a coach in the England national team set-up, and he has observed a positive change in the players who come from Spurs.

“In my role as an England coach I have noticed the difference in psychology and application when Tottenham players come into the camp,” Neville wrote in The Telegraph.

“They now arrive prepared for the battle, ready to play, ready to work. They look like they want to partake in the meetings. All the things you would want from responsible players are there.

“It seems to me that Pochettino has given the younger players the confidence to express themselves, off the pitch as well."

Mauricio Pochettino has been in charge of Tottenham since the summer of 2014 and has done a wonderful job at White Hart Lane.

The former Southampton boss guided Spurs to a fifth-place finish in the Premier League last season, and there is a good chance that they could end up in the top four this campaign.

Pochettino now has a Tottenham squad in his own image, and he deserves all the plaudits that he is getting at the moment.

Spurs are currently fifth in the Premier League table and have also progressed to the knockout stages of the Europa League.
