One of the best works of recent years on the European continent has come to an end. We’re talking about the Spurs sacking Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino. And as incredible as it may sound, it was not exactly a surprise, due to the terrible moment the Spurs are having in the season so far. The poor performances at the beginning of the season were accompanied by several discussions.

The marriage of five and a half years has produced remarkable results and changed the level of the club. There were four consecutive seasons in the top-four of the Premier League, three of them in the top-3. To have a dimension, the last time Tottenham had been the third place it was back in 1990, ending the club’s great 1980s, which had national and international cup titles.

The current season also represents the fourth year in a row in the Champions League. Prior to that, the Londoner club had participated in only one edition in over 50 years. More than that, the Spurs have entered the map of respected clubs on the European scene and became used to big clashes, and international duels, such as wins against Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

Not to mention the UEFA Champions League 2019 final, which was only possible after facing Barcelona, Internazionale, PSV, Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City, and Ajax. It’s no small feat even for those who try to diminish Poch’s work to the fact he got zero titles.

Indeed, Pochettino won nothing at Tottenham. But everything changed during his period there. Spurs got stability, international relevance, developed numerous players and made a group of young people possibly reach the highest level they could. In fact, Pochettino was a victim of his own success, as the standards got way higher. It’s clear that Tottenham won’t find a better replacement for him though. Maybe Pochettino is in the top three today, only behind Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min, Eriksen, Winks, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Dembele, Dier, Rose… It is possible to say that they all reached the best level of their careers under Pochettino at Tottenham. Many emerged there, such as Kane, a young striker who accumulated loans from lower division teams. Considering the team strong is itself a recognition of the work that has been done.

Sacking him was certainly not a simple decision, but it was clearly accompanied by the opportunity to have Jose Mourinho as the new coach. A huge bet on something quite different, quickly turning the page of one of the greatest works in Tottenham Hotspur history. And as for Mauricio Pochettino, it is certain that his name in the market will arouse the interest of many giants, such as Man United, Real Madrid, and Barcelona.
