Harry Redknapp comments on Mauricio Pochettino speculation

White Hart Lane

The Argentine said managing Paris Saint-Germain would be a "dream".

Writing in the Evening Standard, Harry Redknapp can see no reason why Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino would want to leave the North London club.

Speculation has mounted that the Lilywhites could face a fight to keep hold of their Argentine manager after the man himself admitted recently that it would be a "dream" to take charge of Paris Saint-Germain at some point in the future (The Guardian).

The comments might well have worried a lot of Spurs fans, given that Tottenham, under Pochettino, have looked a real threat this season, though they look set to miss out on the Premier League title as Leicester boast a seven-point lead.

All in all, though, the future certainly looks bright on the white half of North London, and ex-Spurs boss Redknapp says the 44-year-old should stay at White Hart Lane.

"I see reports suggesting Mauricio could leave but why would he? I see them being a team challenging for the title in the next few years," he wrote in the Evening Standard.

"They have such a good group of players there now that there is no reason why they should fall away. Everything is in place — the training ground is superb and the new stadium is being built."


Pochettino has certainly assembled an excellent collection of players, fusing the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Dele Alli in with the players he inherited and, in truth, it has looked a lethal mix - one that will only improve if they are allowed to.


Keeping hold of talent is just as hard as finding it in the first place, and a number of Spurs stars may question the club's direction if Pochettino is allowed to leave.
