Arsenal manager Unai Emery insists Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has to be considered amongst the best managers in the world.

The two face off in the North London derby on Sunday, and Emery is of the opinion that Pochettino must be compared with the likes of Pep Guardiola and Diego Simeone following his impressive work at Spurs.

Emery lauded the former Espanyol manager, saying Pochettino has done enough in his career and developed enough young players to be regarded as one of the best head coaches currently in football.

“His career is very consistent. His structure in every team is very clear, with good performances,” he said, according to Goal.

“He has worked in Spain, then here with Southampton and Tottenham, with young players, and every young player usually improves with him and his staff.”

“I think he deserves, because of his career, to be considered with the best coaches like Guardiola and Simeone.”
