“He’s magical, you know,” at least Tottenham fans sang with real enthusiasm, for the vast majority of Mauricio Pochettino’s tenure in north London.

She ended Tottenham’s 30-year-old hoodoo at Stamford Bridge and made great strides in ending the club’s derogatory ‘Spursy’ reputation.
But it wasn’t all sun and roses during his tenure, the run to the Champions League final hid a terrible league record.
Spurs won just six of 24 league games between February 2019 and November of the same year, when he lost his job. And his cup final record with Spurs reads: played two, lost two. Fans of the heroism of “Glory, Glory” hardly dreamed.
