Mauricio Pochettino promises Daniel Levy duet if Tottenham win a trophy this season

Posted by

Mauricio Pochettino has promised to perform a duet with chairman Daniel Levy if Tottenham Hotspur win a trophy this season.

The Spurs boss has been inspired by Ossie Ardiles after meeting his Argentine compatriot and other members of the club’s 1981 FA Cup-winning team.

‘Ossie’s Dream’ was a hit for Ardiles and Chas and Dave the year that Tottenham famously beat Manchester City in the final after a replay.

And Ardiles gave a special rendition to Pochettino at an event organised by Levy on the eve of Spurs’s FA Cup third-round tie with Leicester City on Sunday.

Should Spurs enjoy another FA Cup triumph, or win any other trophy this season, their campaign could end with Pochettino and Levy having a sing-song on the White Hart Lane pitch.

“I promised Daniel last night to sing together if we win a title,” Pochettino is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“What song? I don’t know, maybe after we decide. It is true I promised I would sing in front of, I don’t know who, but he needs to sing with me. Maybe in the stadium, yes OK why not? In front of our supporters.

“Last night Ossie sang in front of everyone with all the legends in behind, singing ‘Tottingham’. It was very funny.

“It was a pleasure to meet them all, a fantastic idea from Daniel and the club. They are an important part of the history and the present of the club. It was a great idea from Daniel to explain the present project of the club and to feel the history is very important for us.

“It was a lovely night to share with them ideas and their experience can help take the club the right way. They can be involved and that can be very important.

“It was a fantastic idea, a lovely night to share and talk about football. I learned the passion that people have and how people identify with the badge. I think it was important to feel this love for the club.”

Pochettino would be wise to warm up his vocal chords because the FA Cup is not the only piece of silverware which Spurs could compete for this season.

They are fourth in the Premier League table, six points off top, and are considered outsiders for the title after losing just twice in 20 league games.

They have also advanced to the Europa League knockout stages and face Fiorentina over two legs at the end of February for a place in the last 16.
