Ray Parlour believes that Tottenham should stick with their manager Mauricio Pochettino and feels he needs more help from the board.
Spurs have endured a poor start to the season and sit 14th in the Premier League table after 12 games.
After finishing as runners-up in the Champions League last season, the North London club have taken a considerable step backwards and look miles off the pace.
According to the Telegraph, Pochettino’s time at Spurs could be running thin and there is concern about his future.
The report explains that Spurs’ league fixture away to West Ham after the international break could make or break his future.
Parlour feels that there is no need to get rid of Pochettino and feels the problem lie elsewhere.
“It doesn’t help when their players are running their contracts down. I think he (Pochettino) needs to be backed a little bit more,” Parlour told talkSPORT.
“He knows he’s going to lose a few players, they need to reinvest. He’s got them into a great situation in the Champions League, they are in it most seasons.
“Whether they can get in it this season looks very unlikely now with the position they are in. I think the board have to back him. I do [think he’s the right man in charge].”
It’s certainly gone stale at Spurs this campaign, but Pochettino needs to be able to oversee a new cycle at the club and build a fresh side that can go hunt silverware.
It would be great to see the club stick their neck on the line to assure fans over Pochettino’s future, as he’s given so much in recent yeas and there has been a noticeable progression on the pitch.
There will be frustration until they win some silverware, but they would find it very difficult to find a coach as talented as Pochettino to replace him.
