Tottenham favourite Graham Roberts has shared that he would not sell Mauricio Pochettino for £100million if manager transfers ever went a similar way to player transfers.

The 58-year-old questioned how managers don’t go for more money when they could be the most important person at the club, but was quick to assure fans he would still reject a massive offer for Pochettino.

The former Tottenham star posted the following:

The retired defender made the comment less than 24 hours after spending time with the Spurs boss where he heaped praise on him.

On Thursday, Roberts called Pochettino the “most impressive football man” he had ever met, revealing that the 45-year-old was a “proper class act” in every way.

Under Pochettino’s guidance Spurs have garnered a lot of praise despite not winning trophies.

Last season under Pochettino, he led Tottenham to a higher finish than bitter rivals Arsenal for the first time in years.

The manager has continued the success this season, with them sitting third in the league, four points above the Gunners already, after 11 games played.

Also Spurs sit atop of their tough Champions League group, having achieved an impressive victory 3-1 victory over Real Madrid.

Next up for Tottenham is Arsenal on Saturday, in the north London Derby at the Emirates, with Spurs knowing a win could take them seven points clear of their rivals.
