Mauricio Pochettino has been the flag bearer for Tottenham since the time he entered the North London club in 2014. The Argentine helped the club gain a certain image and respect in the footballing world. Premier League, which was considered as a five teams league after Manchester City made a mark, turned into a league of six with Tottenham showing consistency. But as the saying goes, football is an unfair game and the manager who was being celebrated six months ago (he led the team into Champions League finals) was removed from his position on November 20, 2019.
