LONDON – Mauricio Pochettino was fired by Tottenham Hotspur management on Wednesday (11/20/2019) early morning hrs. The Argentine passport coach was fired, although he is still under contract with Tottenham Hotspur until 30 June 2023.

Besides Bayern, there is also Arsenal. The Gunners – Arsenal nickname – in poor performance, which in the last five matches in all competitions, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and his friends have never won.
