Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has asked Mauricio Pochettino to take a pay cut on the £8.5m-a-year salary that the club continue to pay the Argentine.
Pochettino was sacked last December and replaced by Jose Mourinho less than 24 hours later, bringing to an end the Argentine’s six years in north London. Levy shared a close relationship with Pochettino and in sacking the Argentine, he agreed to pay his salary until he took up his next job.
Pochettino is one of the finest managers in world football and had been expected to make a quick return to management. (Text and photo courtesy Metro)
