According to the Daily Mail, some of Tottenham Hotspur’s players became confused by Mauricio Pochettino’s behaviour towards the end of his time at the club.

The Mail claim that Pochettino’s relationships with some Spurs players were strained at the point when he left.

There was a moment when Pochettino reportedly gave an unnamed Tottenham player a dressing down for an interview which he conducted, yet the Spurs squad did not think he did anything wrong.

 

Pochettino was aggravated by being called a colloquial term for a manager, yet the word was not said to be derogatory in any way.

The Tottenham squad simply could not understand why the player was in trouble for his comments.

In the end, Pochettino failed to get Tottenham back to their best, with the Lilywhites struggling badly so far this term.
