The result of Tottenham’s Premier League meeting with West Ham United next weekend could decide Mauricio Pochettino’s future, according to the Telegraph.
It is believe the game will possibly “prove decisive” for Pochettino, who has overseen a difficult start to the season. Spurs currently sit 14th in the table, 12 points behind Chelsea and Leicester City, their main rivals for a place in the top four.
So, if Tottenham lose at West Ham and potentially fall 15 points behind those clubs, is there a genuine chance Pochettino will lose his job?
The Argentine has done so much for Spurs, helping the team compete at the highest level, as evidenced by their progress to the Champions League final last season. However, he has failed to win a trophy and the current campaign has been hugely disappointing so far.
That said, chairman Daniel Levy will find it difficult to find a replacement who could immediately turns things around. With that in mind, it might be better to give Pochettino time – he may be able to improve results if he gets what he wants in the January transfer window.
