Harry Winks has claimed that Mauricio Pochettino has a massive role in his rejuvenation at the club.

Tottenham have gone through a massive slump this season. The last year’s Champions League finalists look nothing like their previous selves. Reports have emerged that Tottenham are preparing to sack Mauricio Pochettino.

But Spurs midfielder Hary Winks has suggested that he owes manager Mauricio Pochettino a great deal.

“I’ve said many times and I will always say it, I’ve got everything to thank the gaffer for,’ Winks said as Daily Mail reported.

“He gave me the opportunity and I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for him.

“Of course, I’ve had to work hard to get here, but getting that opportunity in the first place is always difficult and I’m forever thankful to the manager for giving me that opportunity.

“The manager is always happy to have everybody back because we can train together as a team again.

“When everybody goes away separately to their countries, it’s difficult to get the same amount of training in and work on the tactical issues we need to work on, so it will be good for the manager to get everybody back in now and build-up towards the West Ham game,” Harry Winks explained.
