Le Tiss: Pochettino might regret Spurs move

Southampton legend Matthew Le Tissier believes Mauricio Pochettino might have made an error by becoming the new Spurs boss.

I probably wouldn't have made the same move, to be honest.

" think in his position, his stock is very high. I would have maybe would have waited for a different club.

The managers in the last few years at Spurs have not been given a fair crack of the whip and the pressure is on there.

If he is not in the top four by Christmas, he will be under pressure.

It is not a club that I would have said was the best one he could have maybe done for his career prospects.

Victor Wanyama is missing Mauricio Pochettino already...

I learnt a lot from him, he taught me more and that's why I have grown as a player and there is a big difference compared to when I was at Celtic.

He played a big role in my career development.

I wanted him to remain because he had the passion for the club and I think the owners should not have let him go because the team can do better next season.

It's a big blow because he had good connection with the players
