Ex-Tottenham defender Paul Miller backing new manager Mauricio Pochettino
Former Tottenham defender Paul Miller has backed newly appointed coach Mauricio Pochettino, and has called on Daniel Levy to give the Argentine some time to stamp his mark on the club. Miller, who made more than 300 appearances for the North London club and is currently the ambassador of Tottenham, thinks that Pochettino will prove to be the right choice for the club.
Miller said, "I hope so, we all heard the big names branded about, with the delay there was even talk of Carlo Ancelotti after the European Cup win but I think Daniel Levy has gone for a young guy.
"He's still proving it, but he'll obviously be hungry, but he has been good working with young players on limited budgets.
"We have had too many managers in the last ten years, I think we all know that, all we want now is to give somebody a couple of years and four transfer windows, let him make his own impression and impact on the team and then ask the question later.
"This six month - three month thing that is happening with managers has got to stop because you don't have continuity and that is a problem for the players."
Pochettino will have to act swiftly and get the club up and running next season, or he might face the axe by Daniel Levy. Tottenham is an ambitious club who have been continuously fighting with the top guns for a Top 4 spot in the last five seasons, but has qualified only once back in Harry Redknapp’s tenure in 2009-2010 season.
