Poch may not have landed Spurs any silverware during his time but he transformed a club that were a laughing stock in the Premier League to genuine title and Champions League challengers.
During Pochettino’s five full seasons, the. North London club finished fifth, third, second, third and fourth. Not to mention reaching last season’s Champions League final.
However, their form in the calendar year of 2019 has been shocking.
They’ve picked up just 25 points in their last 24 league games.

It’s for that reason, Daniel Levy has decided to pull the trigger.
Now it's time for Mourinho.
Despite being appointed on Wednesday morning, it's hard to imagine Mourinho at Spurs, isn't it?
Well, GIVEMESPORT are here to help you imagine what life will be like with Mourinho in charge.
We’ve listed nine things that will *almost definitely* happen if Mourinho was to replace Pochettino.
Make headlines with his first press conference
“I think I am the special one.”
Those were Mourinho’s first words when he arrived in England.
You just know he’s going to make some outlandish statement about Spurs not winning a trophy since 2008 and him being the natural-born winner to change their fortunes.
Sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Zlatan is yet to announce his new club after leaving La Galaxy recently. At 38, could he team up with Mourinho yet again?
Get the very best out of Eric Dier
Mourinho is a big fan of Dier and was desperate to sign him for United. Dier is currently struggling to get a look in in this current Spurs side and he will surely welcome the arrival of Mourinho.
Improve results vs ‘Big Six’
Mourinho just loves a big game, doesn’t he? Spurs only managed two wins against the ’Big Six’ last season. Mourinho would soon sort that out, you’d imagine.
Pick a fight with Unai Emery
Mourinho loves picking a fight he knows that he can win. At Chelsea, that was Arsene Wenger, who he often got the better off.
And now that he’d be fierce rivals with Arsenal, he may well take aim at their current manager - a battle in which he’ll surely come out on top in a war of words.
Make the Amazon Prime documentary unmissable
Amazon must be rubbing their hands right now.
They decided to do their next series of ‘All or Nothing’ focusing on Spurs during the 2019/20 season.
With Mourinho in charge, this is going to be EPIC!
Spend BIG in the transfer window
In the summer of 2018, Spurs didn’t spend a single penny. Pochettino still got them to a Champions League final.
There’s simply no way Mourinho would accept a job offer from Spurs if it didn’t come with a guarantee of a hefty warchest in January and next summer.
Win the League Cup next season
Let’s face it, Mourinho is a serial winner.
Spurs aren’t in a position to challenge for major honours but Mourinho loves winning the League Cup and it really wouldn’t be surprising to take the competition pretty seriously next campaign.
Celebrate wildly at Old Trafford
Manchester United vs Tottenham. December 4. We can’t wait already.
Can you imagine Mourinho celebrating a late Harry Kane winner by sprinting down the touchline like he did back when he was Porto manager?
