A football manager who has so far failed to win any trophies in his nine-year managerial career says trophies are completely overrated.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said: “Nah, trophies has never really interested me, to be honest.
“All that confetti, lifting the thing into the air while We Are The Champions plays – pah, I’d much rather sneak a fourth place finish.
“Some people don’t believe me when I say you’re better off without them, but I’ve heard those medals are a nightmare to clean – plus you have to upgrade your burglar alarm as soon as you take one home.
“They’re totally not worth the hassle.”
Pochettino was also asked, after Spurs’ 1-0 win against Arsenal on Saturday, whether after a run of nine matches unbeaten he regrets his club’s mixed start to the season.
“Nah,” he replied, “there’s just no need to start a season well if you finish it well is there?”
“People said we shouldn’t have lost away at Leicester and should have beaten Burnely, Swansea and West Brom at home.
“But winning matches is all a bit overrated, you don’t want to do it all the time.
“It’s a great laugh screwing up from time to time – of course it is – why else did you think I joined Spurs?”
