Harry Redknapp: It’s about getting in their heads and convincing them how good they are again

Ex-Tottenham coach Harry Redknapp is sure Mauricio Pochettino will not be sacked despite the poor results in the start of the season. 

Spurs are only 9th in PL table with 3 wins in 8 matches and have conceded 10 goals against Bayern Munich and Brighton before the international break.

Redknapp believes there is a great team and great manager and there is not much difference between Spurs and Liverpool or Manchester City. 

“They’ve got a great group of players. It’s some squad, if you go through it, I don’t care what anybody says I don’t think there’s a lot between that squad and Liverpool’s and Man City’s squad, I really don’t.” Reknapp told Daily Mail.

“If you put Pochettino, or you put Pep [Guardiola] or [Jurgen] Klopp and let them go and manage Brighton or manage Norwich or Sheffield United, they’re not gonna go and put them in the top six, it doesn’t work that way. 

“It’s about the players. He [Pochettino] has got the good players but at the moment there’s been hiccups – one of two of them are not playing to their real potential or as good as they can.

“It’s his [Pochettino’s] job now – it’s not about coaching or getting on the training pitch with systems and that – it’s about getting in their heads and convincing them how good they are again and getting a good spirit and atmosphere around the place and start winning some matches,” he added.
