The Argentine is by far Spurs’ most successful manager in recent times, and although the club lost to Liverpool in Madrid in 2019, it was a day fans will never forget.
“When Pochettino was at Spurs, every season he finished above the biggest club in the world, which had a lot more money,” Carragher said, speaking on Webby and O’neill.
“Spurs are far from being one of the biggest clubs in the world. They are one level below.
“Tottenham didn’t challenge for a league title, I don’t remember my life, they did under Pochettino.
“Tottenham reaching the Champions League final is like Manchester United winning the treble in 1999. Tottenham is not a club that wins. Pochettino, we can not blame him for going to Spurs, and a club that has won nothing for years. He can only do the job he did.
Pochettino – who is currently in charge of PSG – is now linked to the United post.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under a lot of pressure after his side were heavily beaten by Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.
A hat-trick from Mohamed Salah, along with goals from Naby Keita and Diogo Jota, were enough to doom the Red Devils to an embarrassing 5-0 loss to one of their closest rivals.
A number of names including Antonio Conte, Brendan Rodgers and of course Pochettino have been linked as potential substitutes for the Norwegian, although the club have yet to make a decision on his future.
It’s unclear if Pochettino will be interested in the job, but stranger things have happened.
