Gary Lineker: Pochettino might actually be at Tottenham for a while!

The former Spurs striker discussed the club's new manager with ex-chairman Sir Alan Sugar.

Gary Lineker has lavished praise on Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino.

The new manager has won all three of his competitive games at Spurs, most recently beating Queens Park Rangers 4-0 on Sunday.

Pochettino came up against former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, who was sacked by the north London side after three and a half seasons in charge.

Pochettino, however, could be around 'for a while,' according to Lineker.

Indeed, the former Spurs and England striker thinks the Spaniard is a 'fine, tactically astute' manager.

Lineker even got a reply from former Tottenham chairman Sir Alan Sugar, who prefers to remain cautious after Spurs' recent history.

After Redknapp left White Hart Lane, the club sacked Andre Villas-Boas after just one and a half seasons at the club, with his replacement Tim Sherwood also leaving after a brief stint.

In Pochettino, though, Tottenham fans will hope they have a manager that can last. So far, as Lineker says, so good.
