Mauricio Pochettino’s Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Argentine football manager, Mauricio Pochettino is currently the manager of the Tottenham Hotspurs football team. Back in the day, Pochettino was a professional player himself and played for a few clubs ending his playing career at Club Atlético Newell’s Old Boys before turning into a manager. Pochettino is regarded as one of the top managers, alongside the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho.

After his retirement from playing football, he became the manager of La Liga side, Espanyol in 2009. Then, in 2013, he moved to the Premier League, to become the manager of Southampton. In the same year, he managed to stun the Pep Guardiola-led Manchester City.

After a successful year, where Southampton finished 8th in the table, Tottenham Hotspurs snapped him up to replace Tim Sherwood in 2014. Under his regime, Spurs stormed to their best ever finish of 2nd in 2016-17. For three straight years, Tottenham were in the top three and a force to be reckoned with.

Achievements

During his playing days, Pochettino’s career began as a Club Atlético Newell’s Old Boys player, where he netted just 8 goals. Mauricio Pochettino primarily played as a centre back. Out of a total 26 goals scored, 13 came from La Liga with Espanyol. Others came from his Old Boys stint, three years with Paris Saint-Germain and Bordeaux.

As a player, he won the Copa Del Rey with Espanyol and the runner-up with PSG in the Coupe de France in 2002-03. Meanwhile, on the managerial front, he led Spurs to a Football League Cup in 2014-15. However, the crowning glory was the 2018-19 Champions League runner-up to Liverpool.

Managerial style

Mauricio Pochettino often favours a high-pressing, attacking style of football. The Argentine implements a 4–2–3–1 formation while managing. Here, he allows the team to build up their attack from the back, intimidate and unsettle opponents with a quick-press system and work the ball into the box.

Pochettino also emphasises on developing local players from youth academies. He is even open to promoting young players in general, helping some of his English player play for the English national team.
