According to the former footballer, Argentinean manager Mauricio Pochettino needs a win against Watford to continue coaching Tottenham Hotspur.

Last year Tottenham Hotspur ended up in the fourth position of the English Premier League table.

But now, they are currently in the ninth place of the standings with only three wins in eight matches.

This is why former footballer Tony Cascarino believes Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino might be sacked if his team doesn’t win against Watford.

“The signs for Tottenham Hostpur are alarming. The team is getting worse, they are noticeably poorer than two years ago,” Cascarino wrote in his column for the Times.

“Jan Vertonghen, Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Dele Alli – none of them are at the levels they were.”

He commented: “Mauricio Pochettino’s record entitles him to a fair crack at turning things around but I am skeptical as to whether he can. If they lose to Watford in their next game after the international break, he is finished.”

“He is under pressure and making poor decisions. Eric Dier clearly was not fit to play on Saturday and Moussa Sissoko was out of position at right-back.”
