Five months after the decision was fired by Tottenham, coach Mauricio Pochettino has yet to find a new stop. Worse still, the Argentine rulers are even being asked by the old team to … reduce salary.
Tottenham announced the dismissal of coach Mauricio Pochettino.
On November 19, Tottenham’s leadership announced the dismissal of coach Pochettino. So far, nearly five months the Argentine military leader has lost his job. Although the name is cult and is attracted by many big clubs, however, due to the season stalling and ending later than usual, coach Pochettino has not been able to find the next stop for himself.
In the contract agreement as well as the negotiation before the decision to dismiss, Chairman Daniel Levy agreed to continue to pay Pochettino salary until the time he found a new job, or until the termination of the contract. between the two parties (to June 2021). Thus, even when unemployed, Pochettino coach still receives a salary of 8.5 million pounds/year.
Therefore, according to the source of the Daily Mail, President Daniel Levy is trying to persuade coach Pochettino to reduce salaries to join hands to help the North London team in difficult financial times due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The salary that the Tottenham Stadium executive wants to reduce by “Poch” is about 30-50%.
Require the reduction of wages due to the financial crisis.
Besides coach Pochettino, Tottenham is also seeking to persuade Pochettino’s assistants, Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino and Antoni Jimenez, to reduce wages, or may be forced to postpone payment due to the financial crisis. Similar to coach Pochettino, the assistant team that follows the Argentine leader is still paid regularly, until he finds a new job, or ends his contract.
However, the possibility that coach Pochettino and his assistant team will agree to reduce wages is also a long story ahead. Because, even the current Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has not had to reduce his salary, why “Poch” – a man who became the former manager of this team, must sacrifice for the North London team?
In addition, Pochettino – despite much dedication to Tottenham, until the day of dismissal also “only” received £ 8.5 million / year, while Mourinho had just arrived in wet feet was paid £ 15 million / year. With the above factors, it is difficult to expect coach Pochettino to accept a salary reduction, or if there is only a very small number.
Still, according to the Daily Mail, coach Pochettino may also have to reduce only 10% of the current super salary of £ 15 million. The “special person” is the second-highest-paid coach in the English Premier League, only less than Pep Guardiola – who is receiving 21 million pounds per year.
Mauricio Pochettino left Tottenham after four-and-a-half years of leading the London team, most notably helping Spurs reach the Champions League final of 2018/19. Currently, the 48-year-old coach is being noticed by many big teams, including the two giants of Spanish football, Barcelona and Real Madrid, besides Bayern Munich, MU or PSG.
