If we were Busy, Now we Are Super Busy

Pochettino Concerned by Spurs' Amazon Prime Series

Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that he has concerns about Tottenham’s participation in a new Amazon Prime documentary, fearing it will add to an already formidable workload during the remainder of the season.

The fly-on-the-wall programme will adopt a similar format to those that previously lifted the bonnet on goings-on at Manchester City, Leeds and Borussia Dortmund, charting a campaign that has got off to a fraught start. Filming has begun, with Pochettino’s blessing, but he half-joked that he must add the title of “producer” to the rest of his responsibilities.

“When the club agreed the deal with Amazon, of course we were worried about it,” Pochettino said, referring to himself and his staff. “Because it is not easy, not easy. It is tough to have the camera in your office, and then how you handle the situation to have the capacity to say: ‘OK, I am not in a good mood, but sometimes the camera is going to be there.’ It is so complicated, it is another thing to worry about and of course that adds a lot.

“If we were busy, now we are super busy. To plan every day, everything, is not an easy job. That is why, when I told you I feel that I am not any more a manager, I am a coach, now I am like a producer. Being coach, manager and producer.”

While Pochettino may be worried about showing his best face for television, there is the obvious risk that Tottenham themselves will not come out glowingly if their fortunes on the pitch do not improve. It is, the manager accepts, simply a danger inherent to the process.
