The former Liverpool and Spurs player Jamie Redknapp was on Sky Sports this weekend where he labelled Mauricio Pochettino as a ‘serial underachiever’. Sure things haven’t gone well with PSG this season, but to call the Argentine an underachiever when you consider what he did with the North London club Tottenham Hotspur.
Crazy statement, the 50 year old Pochettino has proven to be a serious manager. Will he be the next Manchester United boss and is he the right man for the job?
Pochettino an ‘underachiever’ according to Redknapp.
What a prize plumb he really is. The slander Poch gets from people ‘in the football world’ is utterly frightening. The bloke was the biggest ‘overachiever’ in English football for 4 years ffs. https://t.co/BwnRampFh6

Genuinely concerned about Jamie Redknapp. To describe Pochettino as a "serial underachiever", is tantamount to lunacy! Spending NOT. A. SINGLE. PENNY. he took Spurs to a Champions League Final, whilst also finishing top 4, ahead of teams who spent far, far more. 🤡 #StillBitter https://t.co/iJUT7G678G

Pochettino… serious underachiever… the man carried us to multiple top 4 finishes, multiple finals, title challenges, UCL final all while spending next to nothing! Whatever Jamie Redknapp smokes before he’s goes on air I seriously need some of that stuff

Will never understand someone who says Pochettino has underachieved
– Consistent top 4 finisher at Spurs
– CL final with Spurs
– Domestic cup with PSG
– About to win a league title with PSG
Redknapp incredibly bitter https://t.co/vs8NgxQFgV
