Bringing in Mauricio Pochettino was a stroke of genius

According to the former Tottenham Hotspur captain Gary Mabbutt, the decision to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as the head coach of the Premier League club was a stroke of genius that will hugely benefit the club for a variety of reasons.


Gary Mabbutt used to perform with the jersey of Tottenham from 1982 until 1998 and even though he is no longer a footballer, Mabbuttstill remains up to date with the world of football and especially with what is going involving his former club.

The home stadium of Tottenham Hotspur is currently undergoing huge renovations as it’s experiencing a change of going from having a capacity of 36,284 seats to more than 60,000 as well as many other new additions to the stadium which is good news for the Premier League club as they will be having one of the most modern football pitches in Europe but at the same time, there is a high chance of the owners of the club having to pay more than the initial expected cost of £400 million, there are estimations and rumors going around suggesting that the cost will probably reach £500 million and maybe even beyond that.

Mabbutt has recently stated that if the expected cost of Tottenham’s new home does indeed go beyond of what it was initially anticipated, the decision to appoint Pochettino as the new head coach will be a huge benefit for the Premier League club.

“With a project of this size you worry about the impact it will have on the playing squad. That’s why the chairman’s decision to bring in Pochettino was a stroke of genius. Some were surprised at the time but he is globally renowned for working with young players, developing youngsters with high potential and creating his own blueprint’’

‘’He did it with Espanyol in Spain and then at Southampton here. Just look at Tottenham’s team. It’s the youngest in the Premier League and the likes of Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose and Harry Winks are still improving. The foundations are in place, on and off the pitch.” Former Tottenham Hotspur captain Gary Mabbutt said.
