Pochettino has “credit in the bank” and he will remain with the Spurs whatever happens this season.

Last season Tottenham Hotspur ended up in the fourth position of the English Premier League table and with the second-place of the UEFA Champions League.

This campaign, things have been very different and the Spurs seat in the ninth position with only 11 points after eight matches.

Former footballer Tony Cascarino said that Pochettino might get fired if he doesn’t win against Watford in two weeks.

But for Tim Sherwood, the Spurs are in no way thinking of sacking their manager, thanks to his “credit in the bank.”

“Daniel Levy is one of the most astute men in football; do you think he in his right mind will sack Mauricio Pochettino?” Sherwood told talkSPORT.

“He has got so much credit in the bank with that football club. There is no way he will sack Mauricio Pochettino – not in a million years.”

Sherwood explained: “Now if Mauricio decides he has had enough and he can take the club no further and he wants to move on to pastures new, then I still think he is mad to do that.”

“I think he is the man for the job. I don’t want to him leave. I love the guy, I love the football club.”

“Everything is great [at Tottenham]. Even last night we saw that first NFL game at the stadium and it was fantastic,” he commented.

“Everything is going brilliantly for Tottenham but they have to get over this bump in the road. Every club has it.”

“I still believe they qualify for the Champions League knockout stages and I still believe, at 5/4, it is great money for them to finish in the top four this season,” the former footballer concluded.
