Tottenham Offer Mauricio Pochettino’s Son Offered New Long-Term Contract

Tottenham have reportedly offered former manager Mauricio Pochettino's son, Maurizio, a new long-term contract, according to The Sun.

The Barcelona-born Pochettino junior has impressed at youth level and has now been handed a deal to keep him at the club.

Despite his father being axed in November in a shock sacking after a poor start to the season, the 19-year-old wide player has remained at Spurs.

The Argentine had been in charge for five years and led his side to the Champions League final last season, where they were beaten by Liverpool.

Maurizio posted a photo of himself signing his current deal with Spurs alongside his dad at the start of this season.

After the sacking, he shared a shot of himself in action and added: ‘Onwards and upwards.'

He has also been missing playing for the club's development sides during lockdown, publishing a clip of a youth side scoring a goal with the message: ‘Missing it.'

Jose Mourinho, who replaced Pochettino, has given team-mates of Maurizio including striker Troy Parrott first-team experience since arriving as manager.
