Does anyone else miss Mauricio Pochettino?
Well, this will make you miss the popular former Tottenham boss even more.
According to Argentinian radio Radio Del Plata, Pochettino, who was sacked by Spurs and replaced by Jose Mourinho back in November, recently contacted some Tottenham players to check on their well-being following the recent coronavirus breakout.
The Premier League EFL and all levels of football in England are currently on a break until 30 April at least – with all games suspended until further notice due to the spreading virus.
He said: “I told them that there is no need to be at risk and that football takes second place to health. It seems good to me that measures have already been taken.”
Pochettino might not be associated with the club anymore, but this just proves how much he genuinely cared about his players on a human level, and not just on a footballing level.
Here’s a short memorable video of the Argentine from the post-match scenes after Spurs’ Champions League semi-final victory over Ajax last term and that wonderful relationship that Pochettino had with the Tottenham fans.
