How Mauricio Pochettino is shaping up to be ‘Arsene Wenger’ of Spurs


#2. Proving to have a point even after receiving offers from big clubs

Loyalty is the key

After his retirement last season, Wenger confessed that he had offers from Real Madrid more than once in his career but he says that he proved loyalty to the club after he oversaw a stadium reconstruction by rejecting the opportunity. Arsenal had won the Premier League by becoming ‘The Invincibles’ in the 2003-04 season and the club decided to change their age-old Highbury Ground to a brand new stadium. Along with the new stadium, a lot of responsibilities and duties were vested upon the Frenchman as an elaborate plan to change the structure of the club was presented. After almost a decade, he might regret that he turned down one of the biggest clubs but what he left behind at Arsenal is a legacy to remember.

It might be too early to say that but Mauricio Pochettino might be heading towards the same legacy provided he runs down the length of his contract with Spurs. The Argentinean who has often been praised for his man-management skills has been linked with Manchester United and Real Madrid after Jose Mourinho and Santiago Solari's recent failures. But with Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and Zinedine Zidane at the helm, Pochettino’s future might be secure with Tottenham for now.
