Tottenham won’t sack Mauricio Pochettino in “a million years” because of the “credit in the bank” he has, according to Tim Sherwood.
Spurs have been plunged into crisis this season after winning only three of their first 11 games and a horror week saw them follow up a 7-2 hammering by Bayern Munich in the Champions League with a 3-0 loss at Brighton on Saturday.
Tony Cascarino thinks Spurs will sack Pochettino if he loses his next match against Watford – but Sherwood thinks Pochettino will only leave on his terms.
“Daniel Levy is one of the most astute men in football; do you think he in his right mind will sack Mauricio Pochettino?” Sherwood told talkSPORT.
“He has got so much credit in the bank with that football club. There is no way he will sack Mauricio Pochettino – not in a million years.
“Now if Mauricio decides he has had enough and he can take the club no further and he wants to move on to pastures new, then I still think he is mad to do that. I think he is the man for the job. I don’t want to him leave. I love the guy, I love the football club.
“Everything is great [at Tottenham]. Even last night we saw that first NFL game at the stadium and it was fantastic. Everything is going brilliantly for Tottenham but they have to get over this bump in the road. Every club has it.
“I still believe they qualify for the Champions League knockout stages and I still believe, at 5/4, it is great money for them to finish in the top four this season.”
