Tottenham will struggle to find a better manager than Mauricio Pochettino after opting to sack the Argentinian, according to Gary Lineker.
The former Spurs striker questioned the club’s decision to dispense with a man who led them to the Champions League final for the first time last season.
The club announced on Tuesday evening they had axed Pochettino following a disappointing start to the season.
Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked by @SpursOfficial. He helped the club to punch massively above their weight for years. Good luck with finding a better replacement….ain’t gonna happen.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) November 19, 2019
Lineker said on Twitter: “He helped the club to punch massively above their weight for years. Good luck with finding a better replacement….ain’t gonna happen.”
Former England midfielder Trevor Sinclair blamed Totteham’s players for letting their manager down, tweeting: “Tottenham players need to have a look at themselves in the mirror tonight after what Poch has done for them #Pochettino.”
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher backed Pochettino to be back managing in the Premier League soon.
He tweeted: “I said a few weeks ago I felt this project had ran its course, I thought there would be a change at the end of the season with either the manager or players changing. Pochettino has been a brilliant manager for Spurs & will be back in the PL sooner rather than later!.”
