Lots of Spurs fans still seem to be hung up on former manager Mauricio Pochettino after some photos from his time in Argentina were posted on Twitter.
Pochettino was sacked by Spurs in November after a poor start to the season that had seen the North London club drop as low as 14th in the Premier League and has returned home to Argentina in recent weeks to seemingly clear his head before he takes his next job in management. The Spurs Web posted some of Pochettino’s pictures of him in Argentina where the former manager is clearly enjoying his break from management.
The 47-year-old manager is highly regarded amongst the majority of Spurs fans for the work he did in his five years at Spurs, having been appointed from Southampton in 2014. The Argentinian manager took Spurs to the Champions League final last season but struggled after failing to sell multiple players over the summer.
Reaction from Spurs fans to the photos of Pochettino can be seen in the tweets below.

These Spurs fans clearly miss Pochettino and are pleased to see their former manager looking happy after his time in his native Argentina.
What do we think?
Pochettino looks a lot happier now he has had a break from football and will surely be an attractive proposition for a lot of clubs to appoint in the near future.
Of course, Mourinho’s failure to win at Old Trafford may have contributed towards some of the fans’ feelings towards the Argentine, as things were almost perfect prior to Spurs’ last outing.
