Mauricio Pochettino breaks silence on Tottenham sacking in statement

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has broken his silence on his sacking in a statement released by the LMA.

Pochettino's five-year stint in north London came to an end last week Tuesday, with Jose Mourinho unveiled as his successor less than 24 hours later.

The popular Argentinian, who was denied the chance to say goodbye to his players in person after his sudden sacking, has now spoken for the first time.

He wrote: “I would like to thank Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy for giving me the opportunity to be part of Tottenham Hotspur’s history.

"I would like to thank also everyone I met at Tottenham, all the club staff and the football players during these five and a half years.

"Finally I would like to give a special mention to the fans who make this club so great with their fantastic support.

"I gave the best of me to accomplish the objectives I was asked for in our first meeting. There were equally tough challenges as exciting success.

"Best wishes for the future, I am sure we will cross paths again.”
