If Mauricio Pochettino had decided to up sticks and become the next manager of Real Madrid, what would have been your reaction?
Would you have been one of the thousands cursing the Spanish club, or would you be one of those wishing the Argentine all the best in, what is, one of the most coveted jobs in football?
It’d be interesting to hear what camp you sit in.
But it seems our boss isn’t like most people associated with the game, he isn’t one to simply look at the monetary rewards, he’s a loyal chap.
This morning, lurking in the news source, the Daily Mail, is the suggestion that Pochettino felt obliged to stay with Tottenham after he’d already put pen-to-paper on a new five-year deal.
He knew that leaving after doing such a thing, would see him labelled as a mercenary, a gun for hire.
I’m not sure how many others, in this game, are of such ilk.
Furthermore, our source is also reporting that Pochettino, after displaying such loyalty, has spoken with some of the Spurs players asking them to follow a similar path.
In a game where money rules the waves, it really is heart-warming that there are some good guys left in the game.
Here at Vital Spurs, we applaud Mauricio for his stance and hope many others start to follow suit.
