National Sportslink learned that the two petitions emerged on Change.org titled: ‘Bring back Pochettino’ and ‘Bring back Pochettino’ courtesy of Eva Barr and Holly Griib.
The first one explains: “It is disgraceful that Pochettino has been sacked as a result of a poor season. Pochettino holds the club together. The players and fans love him. He is the heart of THFC.” Whereas the second simply put: “He shouldn’t be here.” Fair enough.
Although Mauricio Pochettino‘s job appeared to be hanging in the balance before the international break, it still came as a surprise that the boss of five years was sacked on Tuesday night.
As optimistic as Daniel Levy might be, the evidence suggests that everything will come crumbling down for the ‘Special One’ during his third season at the very latest.
Consequently, many Spurs fans are debating whether taking on Mourinho is worth the FA Cup or League Cup it might bring, but also the player arguments and transfer disagreements.
However, the petitions haven’t been very popular and any hopes of reaching Parliament with the necessary 100,000 backers look completely doomed with only 16 signatories.
But ‘#MourinhoOut’ was amusingly trending on Twiter before the Portuguese had even managed a game at Spurs.
The tweets of ‘#PochOut’ might have been growing with each game, but there were still thousands of supporters who thought the former Southampton coach needed more time.
Like it or not, though, Pochettino was sent packing and the arrival of Mourinho was bound to be controversial.
