It seems that Mauricio Pochettino got a copy of the new Now That’s What I Call Music album for Christmas, judging by his interview in the Guardian this morning.
The Tottenham manager gave a surprising musical reference when asked about Arsenal’s season.
Spurs are on track to finish in the top four for the first time since 2012 but their thunder could be stolen if their bitter north London rivals win the league.
Pochettino, however, is not bothered if the Gunners are crowned champions and quoted Britney Spears’ single with Will.I.Am – ‘Scream and Shout’ – to demonstrate the point.
“I think it’s like what Britney Spears and Will.I.Am sing: ‘everybody in the club, all eyes on us, all eyes on us’,” Pochettino said.
“Because it’s not important what Arsenal do. For me it’s important to assess our season and how we can compare with us not how we compare with another team.
“If you finish in the top four it’s a success because it means we will have improved on last season.
“Expectation can develop depending on how the season goes. But I was confident and I still am confident with the squad that we have.”
