Mauricio ‘won nothing’ Pochettino is reportedly being advised, by his friends, against taking the Arsenal job because he should wait for a better one.
The mates of a man who said he’d rather work on his pig farm in Argentina than manage a club that has won more in the last six years, when they were rubbish, than he has managed his entire career, think he’s too good for Arsenal.
Pochettino, for some reason, is on the Arsenal managerial shortlist according to journalists, even though the likelihood of Arsenal getting him to cross London seems slim, at best.
I suppose you could make an argument that he might actually win something with Arsenal but I’m sure that’s what people said when he moved up a level from Southampton to Spurs. Yet here we are, five-and-a-half years on, with two cup final appearances to brag about and not a whole lot else.
I mean, he can hardly boast about finishing above Arsenal if he’s managing them, can he?
In reality, if his friends really are his friends, they’d tell him the truth.
