Mauricio Pochettino fired by Tottenham after magic wears off

first_imgTottenham’s manager Mauricio Pochettino sits on the bench before the Champions League group B soccer match between Red Star and Tottenham, at the Rajko Mitic Stadium in Belgrade, Serbia, Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019. (AP Photo/Darko Vojinovic)LONDON — Mauricio Pochettino was widely lauded as something of a miracle worker by elevating Tottenham into English soccer’s established elite and inspiring its improbable run to a Champions League final.In his sixth season at the north London club, the magic of the Argentine coach finally wore off.ADVERTISEMENT Lava gushes out of Taal Volcano as villagers flee Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. That masked, however, an alarming slump in results on the domestic front that has seen Spurs win just six of their last 24 Premier League games since February, a period that goes back to the end of last season.With the team currently in 14th place in the 20-team league and showing no sign of an improvement, Levy made his move.“Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing,” Levy said.“It falls to the board to make the difficult decisions — this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with Mauricio and his coaching staff — but we do so in the club’s best interests.”Pochettino departs without having won a trophy as Tottenham manager, a stain on an otherwise brilliant tenure in which he has had to battle against the biggest teams in Europe while working under strict financial constraints as Spurs prepared to move into a new stadium.ADVERTISEMENT His replacement could be Mourinho, out of work since being fired by Manchester United in December but reportedly keen on the vacancy at Tottenham. Carlo Ancelotti and Massimiliano Allegri, highly respected Italian coaches, are also currently unemployed.Since leaving Porto for Chelsea in 2004, Mourinho has always worked at clubs with big budgets so Tottenham might not be a natural fit for the Portuguese coach.Whoever does come in has a tough act to follow, with former Tottenham and England striker Gary Lineker saying Pochettino had “helped the club to punch massively above their weight for years.”“Good luck with finding a better replacement,” Lineker tweeted, “….ain’t gonna happen.”Pochettino, a former Argentina defender, took over a Tottenham team that was outside the established elite in 2014 and created one of the most dynamic and exciting young teams in recent Premier League history, despite being unable to spend lots of money in the transfer market as the club prepared to move into a new stadium.After a fifth-place finish in his first season, Tottenham came third, second, third and fourth in his next four full seasons in charge. The intensity and energy of the team’s pressing made Spurs stand out under Pochettino.The highlight of his tenure will be Tottenham’s run to the Champions League final, where when the team scraped through the group stage, before beating Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and Ajax to get to the final. The wins over Ajax and City were sealed in breathless games full of late drama, seen as a sign of the unity Pochettino had forged in the side.However, Pochettino suggested before the Champions League final that he would be ready to leave the club if Tottenham won in Madrid, and he has had a disgruntled air ever since. His squad has become fractured, too, with key players like Christian Eriksen and Toby Vertonghen reportedly keen to leave and there was a sense the team was stale and in need of a shake-up.In the space of four days at the start of October, Tottenham lost 7-2 at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League — the first time in club history the team had conceded seven at home in a major competition — and then 3-0 at Brighton, piling the pressure on Pochettino. The previous week, the team was eliminated from the English League Cup by fourth-tier Colchester.His last match in charge was a 1-1 home draw in the league against Sheffield United, a promoted team that outplayed Tottenham at times. Pochettino’s successor will inherit a squad potentially requiring a revamp and lacking in areas like full back and central midfield.Dele Alli, signed by Pochettino from third-tier MK Dons in 2015 as an 18-year-old, was the first Tottenham player to speak about his manager’s departure.“I can’t thank this man enough,” Alli said on Twitter, alongside a picture on him embracing Pochettino. “He’s taught me so much and I’m so grateful for everything he’s done for me. Good luck and hope to see you again my friend.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next DSWD Bicol donates P1.5M worth of food packs for Taal eruption evacuees Alaska clinches playoff spot, tops NLEX 2 village execs nabbed in Bohol buy-bust 400 evacuees from Taal eruption take refuge in Mt.

It wasn’t long ago that Pochettino was one of the most sought-after managers in world soccer, having transformed Tottenham into a title contender in the Premier League and guided the team into last season’s Champions League final — a remarkable feat that remains the standout achievement of his 5½ years in the job.

Exclusive – Di Maria is not the answer to Man United’s problems, insists McAllister

first_imgGary McAllister insists Angel di Maria is NOT the answer to Manchester United’s problems.The Red Devils have made a poor start to the Premier League season, drawing their opening two games but failing to impress in either, and they are now set to shell out a British record fee to sign the Real Madrid wide man.But McAllister doesn’t believe the Argentine will provide the solution to the issues facing Louis van Gaal.“Is Di Maria a player who can grab the game by the throat and really dominate it?” he asked on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“I think he’s a player who flits in and out of the game. He’s talented, he can hit a pass, he can score a goal, but £70m-odd? It’s crazy some of the money that’s flying around.“Bryan Robson, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes – it’s that type of player United need. Di Maria is a fantastic technician, Herrera is another, but they’re not quite Steven Gerrard or Bryan Robson.”last_img read more

The Y will lose, but kids can use, Catalina camp

first_imgThe Glendale YMCA will end 80 years of running a Catalina Island campground at the end of this year, but the camp’s new manager will allow some 1,700 Glendale kids to continue to use it for their summer program. On Dec. 31, the Glendale Y will hand over management of Camp Fox to Guided Discoveries, a science-education group, the Catalina Island Conservancy announced. But Guided Discoveries’ one-year lease with the conservancy requires it to give the Glendale Y priority use of the 3 1/2 acre, 30-cabin campground on Buttonshell Beach. “We want to preserve the historical basis for the Y’s using Camp Fox and benefiting the kids of the Y,” said Mel Dinkel, chief executive officer of the conservancy charged with stewarding the 48,000-acre island. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’Guided Discoveries, a Claremont-based group that also operates a tall-ship expedition and the Toyon Bay campground on the island, is stepping in after lease negotiations broke down between the conservancy and the Glendale Y. The conservancy declined to renew the Y’s lease as some $1.2 million in repairs piled up in recent years. A landfill nearby also requires a cleanup. A septic-system problem led the county Department of Health to cite the camp in 2003, though it was allowed to reopen at half capacity – about 9,000 campers per year. The Glendale Y said the push by the conservancy to open the camp year-round strained equipment and facilities, while the conservancy blamed the Y for letting the campground fall into disrepair. “We felt that we gave it our best effort and the conservancy either felt the proposal was short of what they were looking for or really wasn’t interested in the Y being there,” said John Thomas, chief executive officer at the Glendale Y. Thomas said the Y is negotiating with the incoming operator and the conservancy on how to best tackle the repairs. The Glendale Y has already spent some $200,000 on repair plans. The lease with Guided Discoveries – for 8 percent of the camp’s annual gross income – will expire Dec. 31, 2007. Ross Turner, Guided Discoveries’ executive director, said his group would consider running the camp after 2007, but Glendale Y officials said they would not at this time. Any camp operator will still have to grant the Glendale Y priority access, Dinkel said. The Glendale YMCA hosts about 1,700 kids at Camp Fox each year for summer and weekend camps. Guided Discoveries arranges for about 5,000 to visit the camp, which it has subleased for nine months for its marine science program. “We want to make it the best possible YMCA camp, and we want to make it the best possible outdoor education center,” Turner said. eugene.tong@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
