Pochettino holds crisis talks with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy

Mauricio Pochettino’s future at Totttenham is at an impasse after the Argentine manager held talks with chairman Daniel Levy last week to discuss his future with the club, according to Matt Law and John Percy of The Telegraph.

It’s understood that the odds of Pochettino remaining in charge until the end of the season are slim and that his possible departure could be expedited if Spurs lose to West Ham United on Saturday, a source told The Telegraph.

Spurs have stumbled out of the gate this campaign, with a draw at Sheffield United before the international break leaving last season’s Champions League runner-up in 14th place and 11 points back of a spot in the coveted top four of the Premier League.

Levy would allegedly prefer not to sack Pochettino because of the success the club has experienced during his five-year spell as manager. In addition, if both sides can’t come to a mutual agreement over Pochettino’s departure, Levy would need to pay around £12.5 million to fire the gaffer. However, it appears that the 47-year-old manager might prefer to leave the club, according to The Telegraph.

Meanwhile, Pochettino reportedly brought up his frustrations in the talks that stem from Tottenham’s failure to recruit new players last summer, according to ESPN FC’s Mark Ogden. He voiced his concerns that Tottenham are suffering due to their lack of activity on the transfer market.
