Good luck and hope to see you again my friend. pic.twitter.com/dUO6AJlMxR— Dele (@dele_official) November 19, 2019Davies was playing for Wales when Spurs axed his club boss and said afterwards ‘It was a big shock. He’s been amazing to work with for the last five years and it’s a shame to see him go.”Toby Alderweireld, who was wanted by Mourinho when manager of Man United, said: “I had no idea it was going to happen, not at all, so it’s a surprise to me as well. It will take a couple of days to set in.“The club made the decision, we have to accept this and try to change the situation as quickly as possible. We came a long way together, we achieved big things, so we have to be thankful for what he achieved at the club. He brought the club to the next level.”Pochettino guided them to the Carabao Cup and Champions League finals during his time in the dugout and his 293 games in charge puts him fourth behind Bill Nicholson (832), Peter McWilliam (750) and John Cameron (570). Tottenham fan angry at Mourinho appointment: ‘I hope Pochettino goes to Arsenal and wins the league’Harry Winks joined talkSPORT on the day of Pochettino’s sacking – before he was given the boot – and talked up“I’ve said many times and I will always say it, I’ve got everything to thank the gaffer for,” the 23-year-old said.“He gave me the opportunity and I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for him.“Of course I’ve had to work hard to get here, but getting that opportunity in the first place is always difficult.“I’m forever thankful to the manager for giving me that opportunity.”He later posted his own message on Instagram.Heung-min Son, who was signed by Pochettino in 2015, said words cannot explain how much gratitude he feels he owes the boss.As a Premier League player, Son has developed a reputation as one of the most tireless runners, who possesses superb skill and is an excellent finisher, notably leading the front line in Kane’s absence last season.Equally, Pochettino’s assistant, Jesus Perez tweeted how much he will miss the club.“Thank you from our heart to our players, staff, and special thanks to you all, lovely Spurs fans,” he wrote alongside a picture of him, Pochettino and his staff. Harry Kane thanked Mauricio Pochettino for making him the player he is and helping him ‘achieve my dreams’.On Tuesday night, Tottenham announced Pochettino had left the club and wasted no time in replacing him with Jose Mourinho.Under the Argentine’s guidance, Kane has become one of the world’s best strikers, winning the Premier League Golden Boot twice, while also top scoring at the World Cup.Writing on Twitter, he said: “Gaffer. I’ll be forever thankful to you for helping me achieve my dreams. We’ve had some amazing moments in the last 5 and a half years that I will never forget. You were my manager but my friend as well and I thank you for that relationship. Good luck with your next chapter!”center_img Gaffer. I’ll be forever thankful to you for helping me achieve my dreams.
