Mauricio Pochettino starts talking to the media in English now he's at Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino

First published in Sport

Mauricio Pochettino has started talking to the media in English after quitting Saints last month.

The Argentine always used an interpreter during his time at St Mary's, even though he spoke English to his players.

Pochettino dropped the interpreter for an interview with Spurs TV, however, and moved to ease concerns about his high-intensity training sessions, saying his new squad should not fear his innovative coaching methods.

"'The players don't have to be afraid,' Pochettino said.

"Our style is demanding - sometimes too much but we use common sense. We demand a lot from them because that is our style.

"Our philosophy is 'suffer in training so you don't suffer in the game'. But the players don't have to be afraid because we work with common sense all the time.

"We can only expect full commitment and a positive attitude."

Pochettino also confirmed Steffen Freund will remain on the club's coaching staff.

The former Spurs midfielder will work alongside assistant head coach Jesus Perez, first team coach Miguel D'Agostino and goalkeeping coach Toni Jiminez, who all came with Pochettino from Saints.

I didn't really care whether he spoke English or not during his tenure with us. The results on the pitch were what mattered most to me and he did a good job there. However, when I watched the interview I did feel that it took the mickey out of us a bit. Not just his speaking English but, Spurs use of clips from our training sessions wound me up more. Anyway, whoever takes over soon must make it a top priority for a good dose of Spud bashing home and away next season. I so want us to beat them!

Potchettino could of spoken English when he was at Southampton but his ego and vanity prevented him, if he continues in English his interviews will take half the time but please have some sympathy for the Interpretor David he will be redundant but he will however have more time on his hands so he can buy a season ticket to watch his favourite team the Saints, (I don't really know this I'm joking) one good thing to come out of Potchettino deserting is the Club will save money not having to pay David.
IMO Potchettino had it made at Southampton and has shot himself in the foot, he was hero worshipped at St Marys and would never of had any interference from the Board and possibly been the Manager for years but that's about to change because Levy is notorious for putting his 5 eggs in as he thinks he's immortal and knows better than the Manager he has an awful reputation for hiring and firing, Southampton FC have been shafted by this deceitful man Potchettino but I'm sure he did his homework and believes he's done the right thing by going to Spurs where the grass could be greener than the pitch of St Marys also hope Southampton Players wake up out of the mist and realise they too were working for a disloyal deceitful Manager who's ambitions to progress with Southampton ceased after only 12 months or perhaps they prefer not to know and ignore the facts for what they feel he did for them

Spurs have given Brad Friedel a 1 year extension to his contract and appointed him an Ambassador for the Club AND given 2nd choice Keeper Heurelho Gomes a free transfer, now this to me sounds as if another person is making decisions on the Players before consulting the new Manager Potchettino, this is in contrast to Les Reeds interview who rightly said that nothing has changed until the new Manager is chosen and he will have the chance to assess everything then make his decisions.

He got a good reputation here because he was extremely fortunate to inherit a young and talented squad who have age on their side when it comes to working hard. That's why every man and his dog is trying to poach them now and get them on the cheap. The overpaid and over hyped "stars" at Spuds won't know what's hit them. They'll be knackered by match day. And if his pressing style is so great why doesn't every team play that way. The answer of course is that you have to have the right kind of players to play that way. We have them. The Spuds don't.

I am getting the impression that there is a prevailing mood of negativity being directed towards our former manager on this thread.

When's he moving to this proper big club then?

I would guess about 12 months into the contract with Twattenham Shitespurt from **** Shart Lane.

Next Southampton manager set to be Ronald Koeman as he agrees terms with Saints




Ronald Koeman is set to become Southampton’s new manager.

The Holland legend agreed terms on Friday to succeed Mauricio Pochettino at St Mary’s, and is expected to be unveiled when he returns from holiday.

He was first interviewed a fortnight ago but the deal looked to have stalled because of a dispute over the transfer budget he demanded.

However, the Saints' owner Katharina Liebherr has now promised Koeman a sizeable war chest to revamp the squad he'll inherit.

The ex-Valencia and PSV Eindhoven manager, 51, quit Dutch side Feyenoord at the end of last season following a three-year stint in charge.

Saints drew up a four-man shortlist to replace new Spurs chief Pochettino, including Fulham boss Felix Magath, but ex-Barcelona ace Koeman was always their preferred choice.

His desire to play attractive football and blood young players fitted the Saints’ criteria.

I wouldn't trust Pinchatinny any further that I could throw. Little known about Jesus but I doubt he'd go against anything said by his master.
