Kevin Wimmer describes Mauricio Pochettino in three words, defiant on title chances

The Austrian is currently a regular in the Spurs first-team.

Tottenham Hotspur take on Bournemouth in the Premier League tomorrow - with one eye on the Premier League title.

Spurs are now eight points off of Leicester at the top of the table and need to pick up a win against The Cherries to ensure they remain in the title hunt.

One of their most impressive players in recent weeks has been Austrian defender Kevin Wimmer.

He has stepped in for the injured Belgian Jan Vertonghen with aplomb in recent weeks and Mauricio Pochettino has been proven right for bringing the player in.

This week the defender has been speaking to Soccer AM about his time in English football, and was asked to describe his Spurs boss in three words.

Judging by his rather bland answer, he did not quite get the gist of the question:

"(Describe Mauricio Pochettino) in three words?

"Very good manager."

He was then asked whether he would be winning the Premier League title this season - to which he gave a very confident answer:

"If it depends on me, if I have to say now? Yes, yes."

The former Koln player would probably not have envisaged being in this situation when he first made the move to London but it certainly sounds like he is now confident of picking up silverware at the end of his first campaign.
