Mauricio Pochettino faces the sack if Tottenham Hotspur lose to West Ham after the international break.
West Ham host Spurs and both teams are desperately out of form. Both Manuel Pellegrini and Pochettino are under pressure. The latest reports suggest the latter could be on his way out if the result is not up to scratch.
According to The Telegraph, Tottenham will consider sacking Pochettino if West Ham claim all three points. The Hammers have the chance to put the final nail in the coffin for Tottenham’s greatest manager of this generation.
This would give West Ham fans great bragging rights. Pochettino has led Tottenham into a new era but stagnated lately and it seems losing to their London rivals would be the last straw.
However, West Ham supporters are not quite so optimistic. Hammers fans have flocked to Twitter to discuss this possibility with most adamant that Pochettino will receive a get-out-of-jail-free card from West Ham.
Here are some tweets from West Ham fans discussing the chance to seal Pochettino’s fate at Spurs.
Well that’s his job safe then…
