It’s time for Pochettino and Tottenham to part ways

Mauricio Pochettino is currently enduring the worst period of his Tottenham managerial career, with the team languishing in the bottom half of the table. They are currently only six points above the relegation zone. Although they are regulars in the Champions League, Spurs are now 11 points behind Manchester City in 4th position, with their chances of qualification looking slim at best. In the modern game, it is easy to suggest a managerial change will fix matters on the pitch and …
