Gaffer of the week
Undoubtedly Mauricio Pochettino.
While the introduction of a 7.45pm Premier League game on (occasional) Saturdays has led to concern being expressed for supporters having to travel long distances, very little consideration has been expressed for the impact on pooches belonging to those involved in these games.
Until Mauricio spoke out last week.
“It will be so strange for my dog. Not for me, but my dog,” he said of Spurs’ 7.45 game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
“’Where is my dad?’ she is going to say. She is beautiful and I am in love with her.”
And we with you, Mauricio.
