Tony Cascarino has told Alan Brazil's Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT [15/05/2018, 06:40] that Tottenham Hotspur fans may consider Mauricio Pochettino's potential move to Chelsea as a greater treachery than Sol Campbell's infamous move to Arsenal 17 years ago.

Sky Sports reported this week that Chelsea are interested in appointing the popular Tottenham boss as a replacement for Antonio Conte this summer.

Pochettino, who has led Spurs into the top four in three successive seasons, has done a fantastic job since arriving in North London from Southampton back in 2014.

Not only has the Argentine transformed the Lilywhites into a serious European side, but he has also helped to devleop some of the world's finest players in the form of red-hot duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

Campbell joined Arsenal from Tottenham in 2001 and remains a loathed figure by those on the white half of North London as a result, but Cascarino suggests that the 47-year-old manager joining Chelsea would represent another level of betrayal.

He told talkSPORT: "Would this be worse than Sol Campbell going from Spurs to Arsenal? I feel a lot of Tottenham fans would think it is.

"All he's done the last few years at Spurs, and created and put together a fantastic team, and if he was off across West London to a club like Chelsea, I think Spurs fans would be absolutely devastated. I think Tottenham fans would be so uspet."
