Spurs Fans Loved Mauricio Pochettino Claiming He’ll Never Manage Barcelona… or Arsenal

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino compared becoming the new Barcelona manager to crossing the north London divide and replacing Arsene Wenger this afternoon… and Spurs fans loved it.

Pochettino is understood to be one of the names the Barcelona board are looking into, with current coach Luis Enrique confirming earlier this year that he will leave the Nou Camp at the end of the season.

However, it appears Pochettino has unfinished business at White Hart Lane as he categorically denied that he is interested in taking over at the La Liga giants.

The Argentine played 216 games for Barca’s local rivals Espanyol, before taking over as manager at the RCDE Stadium when he eventually hung up his boots.

And Pochettino has claimed that his love for the club means it would be “impossible” for him to ever take charge of Barca… much like it would be impossible for him to coach Arsenal following his three years at Spurs:


Needless to say, Tottenham fans were quick to praise the 45-year-old for his comments:


Pochettino could write his name into the history books this season if Spurs can finish above Arsenal in the Premier League, the first time the club will have achieved the feat since 1995.
