With the dismissal of José Mourinho and the good present of Mauricio Pochettino at PSG, Tottenham’s gross mistake has been made clear. They have fired one of the most important coaches in their history in exchange for a less auspicious present.
The morning of Monday, April 19, woke up with news that surprised all football fans, mainly Tottenham fans. Jose Mourinho He was fired along with his entire coaching staff after the 2-2 draw against Everton and days before the final against Manchester City for the Capital One Cup.
It is surprising, because there were no dramatic situations in the last hours that led to a hasty end. Maybe indoors there were, who knows. But what is clear is that the image of another DT is exalted: that of Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine shines in PSG and he was also thrown out of the Spurs.
For no apparent reason and having reached a UEFA Champions League final, at the first change they decided to fire him. Without respecting projects, without enforcing the years in which Few It gave value and football identity to a team that did not shine even by chance on the international scene.
Pochettino It is the great cause of Tottenham being respected today in the Premier League as one of its possible entertainers, or at least the one who managed to revalue a team that was not in the discussion of the most transcendental clubs of the English tournament for a long time. It was a rude mistake, the worst in its history, Tottenham’s when throwing the Argentine coach.
Today they threw out Mourinho, who came to replace Pochettino and who did not provide major solutions. The showy game, possession and short pass, was replaced by a fierce counterattack and long passes that had the sole objective of reaching the feet of Harry Kane to do his magic.
Pochettino is out, Mourinho is out. But the only truth is reality: And the certainty is that the Argentine was not allowed to work, they cut the project in half. Today it shines in France, and in England everything is disappointment.
