Pochettino is like a father to me, says Tottenham midfielder Wanyama

Date Posted,March 27, 2017

Victor Wanyama has described Mauricio Pochettino as a “father figure” at Tottenham .

The 25-year-old, the only player to have featured in all 28 of Spurs’ Premier League games this season, has also been one of the bargains of the season after being signed from Southampton last summer for just £9million.

He credits his success to Pochettino, who he also worked with in the 2013-14 season when the Argentinean was his Saints manager.

Kenya international midfielder Wanyama said: “I’ve learned a lot of things through him, and I don’t just see him as a manager but as a father figure.

“I looked at where the club was heading and with the manager, I knew I couldn’t go wrong. I know he builds for the future and wants to fight for everything. I couldn’t resist that.

“Mauricio has improved my game in all aspects, everything.
