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.
