According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur’s players have noticed that Mauricio Pochettino has become more distant in training.

Spurs won’t sack Pochettino, despite their poor start to the campaign, as they feel that he has the ability to change their fortunes.

However, Tottenham’s players are said to be becoming concerned by their manager’s demeanour.

Pochettino has cut a frustrated figure at Tottenham this season, in press conferences and on the touchline.

 

And it is said that Spurs’s players have become worried about his behaviour in training.

Although Pochettino is still said to be popular among Spurs’ squad, it is claimed that he isn’t as involved in training as he once was.

Pochettino apparently sometimes watches Tottenham train indoors, rather than making it out onto the field at Hotspur Way.

Whether Pochettino will take a more hands-on approach this week remains to be seen.

Spurs have to pick themselves up from a humiliating 7-2 defeat against Bayern Munich, with the North London side taking on board a great deal of criticism.

Pochettino is currently enduring one of his most difficult times in the Tottenham dugout, and the pressure is on them to bounce back at the weekend.

If Spurs can pick up three points against Brighton & Hove Albion it will go some way to stopping the question marks surrounding the Lilywhites, but another defeat will only ramp up the speculation about Pochettino’s future.
