In five years as manager, Mauricio Pochettino has taken Tottenham Hotspur from seventh in the Premier League to the final of the Champions League.
From a club that were once synonymous with mediocrity, they have become a staple of Europe’s elite competition.
Poch has become the longest serving manager at the club in over 30 years, and has managed to oversee this transformation without spending big – with finances instead being invested in a state-of-the-art new stadium.
So how has he done it? What drives him? And what happens when he leaves?
In this episode, we discuss all that – as well as Thomas Gravesen, and the weirdest football transfers of all time.
