Lord Sugar takes aim at Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino with Arsene Wenger request

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino’s nightmare week turned into a full-blown crisis today as Spurs slumped to a 3-0 defeat away at Brighton – and Lord Sugar wants to see Arsene Wenger replace him.

It has been a disastrous few days for the north London club; first they were humiliated on their own turf in the Champions League, with former Arsenal man Serge Gnabry scoring four goals in a 7-2 rout for Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

If that was the nadir for Pochettino, though, he plummeted to a new low in the Spurs hot-seat this afternoon.

It has only been five months since he guided Spurs to the Champions League final in dramatic fashion, where they eventually came unstuck against Liverpool in Madrid.

But Lord Sugar – who enjoyed close to a decade as chairman of the club – has called for ex-Arsenal manager Wenger to replace Pochettino.

The Apprentice chief quote tweeted the Mirror’s post of an article on Wenger confirming he is considering a job offer and simply said: “Come to Spurs”.

Wenger, 69, has been out of work since calling time on his 22-year reign at Arsenal last year.

The Frenchman has been linked with numerous jobs in his time out of the game, but he is now pondering a different role that would see him tackle coaching efficiency and life after football for players.

He told beIN Sports: “I just want to share what I’ve learnt, and give it back to the game in a different way.

“I’m not sure that I would stop coaching as well, because the devil is still in there. But I have to see, do I like it, and can I be efficient.”

When asked what the role would entail, Wenger added: “Dealing with coaching efficiency. Dealing with after-career potential for players, to educate them to potential jobs for them after the career of a football player.

“Because you forget the drama of a player is to get to the top of the world and at 34 years where a young man is bye bye over.

“I think there is enough to do there to help the players come back and help to develop football.

“As well to continue to improve the rules of the game. We can still move forward on that front. And always to be ahead of the evolution of society. That is absolutely vital.”
