Pochettino’s impact at Spurs ‘undeniable’ – Postecoglou

Ange Postecoglou anticipates Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino, one of his predecessors at Tottenham, will receive a positive welcome from all connected with Spurs when the two London clubs meet in the Premier League on Monday.

Pochettino brings a team to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the first time since he left in 2019. Under his tenure, Spurs finished as Premier League runners-up and reached the 2019 Champions League final.

Postecoglou, whose side currently leads the Premier League by two points after 10 games, said: “He almost took the club to the ultimate summit of the Champions League, got close to the league, so his work is unquestioned.

“Everyone I speak to around here, there are still people who worked with him, they can’t speak highly enough of him as a person and as a manager.

“I doubt there will be anything but respect for Mauricio from anyone at this football club, supporters or people associated, but it doesn’t mean he will get a guard of honour on Monday night because we want to win.

“I don’t think he would expect that, but his tenure here and impact here is undeniable and will stand the test of time.

“Whenever people think of Mauricio and his time here as a Spurs manager, they will only look upon it with respect and fondness.”
