Former Spurs coach, Danny Rose has come out to say that Mauricio Pochettino will eventually manage Manchester United.
Rose recently revealed that he is sure that someday, the Argentine coach will be appointed manager at Old Trafford.
According to him, Poch had a different culture to the British when he was at Tottenham and he was never willing to compromise on that even after Spurs defeated Ajax in the Champions League semi-final.
He added that Mauricio never allowed the squad to celebrate by drinking or partying for making the UCL final because he was not used to the kind of culture.
“Without a doubt, he would end up, Eventually, at United.”
On his time at Tottenham, “Even under Poch, he had a different culture to the British,”
“It wasn’t that he didn’t understand it. You know the British like to have a drink, it was just something that he couldn’t get his head around.
“He wasn’t willing to compromise on that, either. Even after we beat Ajax in the Champions League semi-final and it was obviously the biggest night of our careers. On the flight home we weren’t allowed a drink.
“It was ‘no you’re training tomorrow, you’re up at 9’. It’s just one of those things. British managers do different things.
“Foreign managers, sometimes it’ll take them time to adapt or for the players to adapt to them. It’s something that is just one of those things in football.
“In the changing room and we went back out to the fans, for that hour I felt on top of the world. Then we got back on the plane and we were trying to have a drink and he wasn’t having it. He was like ‘No, we’ve got a game on Saturday’. The night was over.
“I do fully respect what he’s done but at the same time with that Champions League semi-final we’d been together since we were 22 or 23, so for me that’s all I’d known for the past five or six years, you’d play and then get one day off if you’re lucky and that’s it, you’re grafting for the rest of the week.
“So now I’m at Newcastle, you’re getting two or three days off a week if you win, so I’m thinking what’s going on here then? It’s a shock to the system.
“We’d only get one day off if we were lucky under Poch. Even in international breaks, he’d see the ones who would go away as having a holiday because training isn’t as hard with your national team.
“So if you weren’t in the national team you were getting beasted in training. You’d only get Saturday or Sunday off and then you’d get somewhere like Liverpool where they’re getting seven to 10 days off.
“We’ve been programmed a certain way in the last five or six years and going to Newcastle it’s different. I’ve missed playing for a British manager and I’m getting used to it again.”
