While hardly one of football’s most decorated coaches, Jamie Carragher summed up what makes Mauricio Pochettino such a great manager on Monday Night Football early in 2021.

“What Pochettino did that was special was he made Spurs fans believe they could win the biggest trophies.”

The Argentine has given fans great memories wherever he has been, and his journey with Paris Saint-Germain should yield more silverware.

Here are some of Pochettino’s best moments in management.
