Odds Slashed On Mauricio Pochettino To Be Next Premier League Manager Sacked
Mauricio Pochettino's tenure at Spurs took another knock as they lost 3-0 to Brighton on Saturday afternoon, leaving him as one of the favourites to be next manager out in the Premier League.
It's only been five months since Spurs lost in the final of the Champions League to Liverpool but the north London side's latest loss has left Pochettino as one of the favourites to leave next.
The defeat away to Brighton dropped his odds further, after becoming favourite midweek, and he is now odds on with SkyBet at 5/6, as per Odds Checker.
It has been the worst week for some time for Pochettino and Spurs this week, impressive considering a recent week included a draw against Olympiakos and losing in the Carabao Cup to League Two Rochdale.
They started it by losing 7-2 to Bayern Munich at home in the Champions League, after taking the lead, with Serge Gnabry scoring four second half goals.
The game against Brighton might have looked like the perfect opportunity for the team to bounce back but they were well beaten 3-0 with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris injuring himself after making a huge mistake for the first goals, early reports suggest he could be out for two months with a dislocated elbow.
