Former Tottenham player Darren Bent spoke to ‘talkSport’ and argued that Mauricio Pochettino is no match for Pep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp.
After a bad run of results, Pochettino left Tottenham at the end of 2019 and Mourinho took his place. It should be remembered that the Argentinian had just been runner-up in Europe.
Darren Bent, on ‘talkSport’, said that the former Spurs coach of is not up to the level of other great coaches: “I look at Klopp, Guardiola and even Ancelotti. I can’t put Pochettino in that group yet. I know he’s been at Spurs, but he hasn’t won anything”.
The former Tottenham player also continued in the same vein: “Look what Pochettino did at Spurs. He took them to a level. In the end, after all the great work Poch had done to develop players like Dele Alli and Harry Kane, Daniel Levy still needed someone to come in and win trophies”.
“I felt that Pochettino couldn’t do that. Was it enough to take them to a Champions League final? Does that automatically catapult you into that elite group, because you took someone to a Champions League final? Not for me,” he added.
