Tottenham legend Clive Allen has had his say on whether Mauricio Pochettino could be sacked after a tough start to the season.

Having reached the Champions League final last season, Spurs have made an indifferent start to the new campaign under the Argentine.

A horror 10 days saw them knocked out of the Carabao Cup by League Two Colchester, hammered 7-2 by Bayern Munich and humbled 3-0 at Brighton, leading to uncertainty over Pochettino’s position – with some reports suggesting that Jose Mourinho is being lined up to take charge in north London.

Indeed, there have been plenty of calls to sack the former Southampton boss but Allen, who knows chairman Daniel Levy well, is confident that is not going to happen.

“I don’t think he will get sacked, when you look at the way he has worked and the way he has developed the squad in terms of Champions League qualification, being competitive at the top end of the Premier League,” Allen said.

“Daniel has delivered in a big way in terms of everything that is in place now, the best stadium in the world and the training complex, his relationship with the manager is a good one.

“That has shown, Mauricio has been there five years and I don’t see that changing any time soon.”
