Reports: Pochettino offered Benfica job

Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino has been offered the manager’s job at Portuguese giants Benfica, according to reports.

It would seem highly unlikely that the Saints boss would walk out of St Mary’s after stating so publically his desire to continue to work alongside Nicola Cortese only a fortnight ago, but Spanish daily newspaper El Confidencial has reported the job offer as fact.

Even if the report is correct, and even if Pochettino was interested, Saints would need to agree to let him go, and as he is under contract that would also mean compensation being agreed.

Cortese has proved himself to be a very tough negotiator and would be very reluctant to let his man leave.

The pair have formed a close bond since Pochettino took over from Nigel Adkins in January, and they are plotting a stellar season at Saints next time out where they are targeting a European place.

Though Benfica can offer a decent chance of domestic silverware, and Champions League football, Saints still boast the Premier League and the millions the Liebherr family are pumping in for summer spending.

Many would therefore suggest that he would be better off staying at Saints anyway.

Sturridge - injured out of next game.
Carroll - injured out of both games
Defoe - injured playing less mins
Welbeck - injured may not be risked

Walcott and Rooney the only 2 fit forwards in England squad. Neither are `target men` likewise Defoe.
Hodgson still refuses to call in any replacements, SRL, saying its `too late`. how long does it take to make a phone call? further proof, if needed, that SRL will never get a England cap whilst Hodgson is manager. England failed to beat Ireland tonight after missing several good chances.
England may fail to qualify for the world cup, yet the same faces keep getting picked, those same faces that have failed in every major tournament over the last decade and more. fans are deserting the national team partly because of the selection process.
if the FA want the national side to succeed they need to copy Spains example and drop the older players and start again with a whole new youth team. they wont do this though as it doesn't fit in with their marketing goals.

England managers pick whoever they think the press will not vilify them for picking if we lose. The FA is the same. There is no clear strategy except, "Let's not take risks. We want to keep our jobs." They are scared of criticism and go for big names; the so-called safe choices from clubs with big fan bases and play the same old predictable way. Woy is just another uninspiring manager without the balls, personality or intelligence to really shake anything up.

Agree! If SRL was on his hols somewhere a got the call I'm sure he'd make it happen. Trouble is it would mean a 'humiliating climbdown' in Nationals speak and, despite some pundits saying Defoe and Rooney don't combine well, I can't see Roy taking what for us Saints at least is a sensible step. Here's a clue FA - I didn't bother watching - and I don't feel I missed out on much.

I agree, SRL has a footballing brain. He is not just a target man. He would have pulled the Irish all over the place and unpicked the packed defence

the F.A are killing the team, these players that have already failed in 2 or 3 tournaments.while other nations after one World-Cup failure to make the squad 4 years later,you`d have to be on top of your game ,not for England players,some are on their 3rd losing tournaments and still selected

Why on earth should Shaw be playing for England? He's not better than Cole or Baines (yet, anyway) but fitness and form permitting we all know he'll play for England one day because he's a decent player.
Lambert, on the other hand, is an entirely predictable striker with a decent enough scoring record who is lauded by Saints fans but no one else. I seem to remember Norwich fans getting worked up about Grant Holt playing for England once upon a time when he was banging a few in. But he's another slightly over-rated forward with no obvious international pedigree.
If England don't play with a 'target man' - and clearly they won't under Hodgson while they are playing three up front - why bother picking one who's past his sell-by and a little bit better than average.

A trifle unfair methinks.

When there's nothing happening a lot of lazy media hacks don't report anything. However, they ought to be looking further than the end of their noses and covering many of the important things which haven't happened.

Of course many of these things are of considerable moment - all those involving tragic accidents, explosions and deadly virus attacks for example. These things could have been absolutely dreadful for the club and I'm greatly relieved that the hot news is that none of them happened.

Nonetheless, I think reporters need to be responsible. I would not, for example, cover the story that Rickie Lambert wasn't bitten by a poisonous tropical spider which crawled out of a pack of Tesco bananas - and no, not because I have a small Tesco shareholding, but because I would forego objective reporting in order to avoid any danger of reducing people's appetite for healthy fruit consumption.

As I don't approve of salacious tabloid reporting, I would also not mention the fact that Jose Fonte's wife did not run off with an African witchdoctor with a very big willy that had been stretched by the attachment, over many years, of a large weight.

I would, however, give prominence to the news that a Flybe aeroplane did not crash onto Nicola Cortese - not only because the news that our chairman had not been killed is massive, but also of course out of respect for the families of all those who were not affected by the crash which didn't happen.

I think you will find that there are many others on here who have vital matters which didn't happen at the top of their minds too.

A tad pedantic but I can confirm that the large weight technique does not work and only offers a very short term benefit, and not inconsiderable discomfort.

I seem to remember Norwich fans getting worked up about Grant Holt playing for England once upon a time when he was banging a few in. But he's another slightly over-rated forward with no obvious international pedigree.
If England don't play with a 'target man' - and clearly they won't under Hodgson while they are playing three up front - why bother picking one who's past his sell-by and a little bit better than average.
Shaw should be playing for England because he is young, full of talent and is not scared of taking on the opposition - did you actually watch the matches where he made a break from deep in Saints own half and went past quite a few of the best players in the league?
why is he doing this? because nobody has told him that he can't or shouldn't be doing it.
I say get him in the squad and get him out playing because its exciting to watch, shows more effort and intent than anything we've seen in an England shirt for the last ten years and other sides will find him difficult to play against since they don't know him.

As for SRL - well he didn't get to be joint top goal scorer in the PL this season by being 'entirely predictable'.
The fact that the player he equalled is Lampard speaks volumes - Lampard gets into the squad because ....? and Lambert doesn't get into the squad because ...?
It's not just the goal scoring though, its the way he holds the ball up, gives other players options, drops in nicely weighted passes for strikers to run on to - believe you me, Rooney would love being able to run on to a nice little through ball that Lambert can supply.

Honestly - it's not really about who is better. It's about who is going to perform.
And the current group of players that keep getting picked to play for our national side are simply not performing.
I would rather go down to the park of a weekend and hand out eleven England shirts and see those lads lose - because I know they would put some effort into it.

The FA need to stop wringing their hands an whining about the lack of talent coming through and actually start picking players who are going to perform in an England Shirt. No matter what league they play in.

A trifle unfair methinks.

When there's nothing happening a lot of lazy media hacks don't report anything. However, they ought to be looking further than the end of their noses and covering many of the important things which haven't happened.

Of course many of these things are of considerable moment - all those involving tragic accidents, explosions and deadly virus attacks for example. These things could have been absolutely dreadful for the club and I'm greatly relieved that the hot news is that none of them happened.

Nonetheless, I think reporters need to be responsible. I would not, for example, cover the story that Rickie Lambert wasn't bitten by a poisonous tropical spider which crawled out of a pack of Tesco bananas - and no, not because I have a small Tesco shareholding, but because I would forego objective reporting in order to avoid any danger of reducing people's appetite for healthy fruit consumption.

As I don't approve of salacious tabloid reporting, I would also not mention the fact that Jose Fonte's wife did not run off with an African witchdoctor with a very big willy that had been stretched by the attachment, over many years, of a large weight.

I would, however, give prominence to the news that a Flybe aeroplane did not crash onto Nicola Cortese - not only because the news that our chairman had not been killed is massive, but also of course out of respect for the families of all those who were not affected by the crash which didn't happen.

I think you will find that there are many others on here who have vital matters which didn't happen at the top of their minds too.
A tad pedantic but I can confirm that the large weight technique does not work and only offers a very short term benefit, and not inconsiderable discomfort.
Cheers - valuable and thoughtful contribution. Don't try it guys.

I won't be surprised if we hadn't made a offer for one of Benfica's better players and the player is interested in working with Poch.
So Benfica have leaked this story to the press as a way of rejecting our offer for the player.
.
Do Benfica have any players we would be interested in ?
1/ A winger with pace who is also a teamplayer (knows when to tuck in to support the central midfield players; knows when to double up with the fullback etc) ?
2/ A ball playing CB who is comfortable on the ball ?

Rendered the friendly meaningless - what an opportunity wasted ( yet again! ). Ideal occasion to try out youngsters and also the likes of our RL, the occasion an chance would have given them the boost/spark that the regulars lacked! But then I'm only a fan - what do I know!

From my limited understanding - surely MP can't be 'offered the job' until they have first contacted the club and asked for permission to speak to him, which would clearly he turned down.

If they did approach him casually, that is surely an improper approach.

Basically, for 'offered the job' I think you can safely say they have expressed an interest in him or, more likely, fed a rumour to the press to see if it gets a response from MPs agent or the club.

Totally agree, Roy has been a bit of a backward looking disaster as far as I'm concerned, which is a shame as I thought he'd give a chance to players of smaller teams.

With all the big clubs on money making tours there was a rare chance to give the young/less high profile players a run out with the real potential of them getting a game.

So what do we get - Spurs and Man Utd substitutes up front and no cover for them. One right back when Clyne has been exceptional there. No creative Wilshere replacement when Lallana is available.
