Jay Rodriguez: 'Pochettino's future is up in the air'

Jay Rodriguez

First published in Saints News

SAINTS forward Jay Rodriguez has admitted the future of manager Mauricio Pochettino is "up in the air" amid continued speculation the Argentinian is on his way to Tottenham.

Pochettino's brilliant season at St Mary's has made him the clear bookmakers' favourite to take over at White Hart Lane following the dismissal of Tim Sherwood last week.

Rodriguez, who is recovering from a knee injury which ruled him out of the World Cup, said: "It's up in the air and we're not too sure at the moment.

"I'm just trying to focus on my rehab because that's all I really can do, and I don't want to get sidetracked by anything else.

"He (Pochettino) is unbelievable. Anyone will say what a great manager he is and what a good guy he is, to see how well he's done with the type of football we're playing.

"He's worked us hard and we've seen the benefits from it so I think he's a great manager and I love playing under him."

Rodriguez was expected to join Saints team-mates Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw in Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad until he suffered his season-ending injury against Manchester City in April.

The 26-year-old has himself been the subject of speculation about his future - Tottenham are believed to be interested - but is currently more concerned about his rehabilitation. He is not expected to be back in training until October a the earliest.

"There's not really a timescale on when I'll be back," Rodriguez added. "I don't want to rush anything at all because it's important I do everything properly and come back stronger than when I actually finished.

"This is a testing time for my career but I think I'm going to come out of it with a positive ending for me.

"It's going to test me but I think it's going to improve me, mentally and physically."

Are Tottenham interested in Pochettino? I'm surprised it's not been mentioned before.

What did the journalist expect Jay to say, He's signed a £5 million a year 10 year contract, with a clause stating he must pick me for every game even if I am injured.

It really is getting quite tedious now, what next Cortese saying he wouldn't sell any players and Pochettino shouldn't move too soon.

Yawn Yawn Yawn

For those having a pop at The Echo I think these quotes were picked up from an interview Jay did on Talksport yesterday.
I am pleased Jay is focussing on his rehab as he should. Best of luck to him to get back playing for Saints ASAP

It wouldn't matter what anyone says, it will be turned around to mean something entirely different, it makes sense that silence is the best policy as it cannot be corrupted into another nuance to make things look worse. Although I would appreciate something/anything to come from the Club to put my mind at rest!

I read the Cortese interview on BBC and they said there despite speculation Saints are not willing to lose anyone.
Yet at the end of the day the media has sold every player we have today in their blurbs. It won't stop until the club talks and Poch really wants to make his mind up what he wants and do it one way or the other, cos all this is doing is creating problems for the club and fuelling insecurity amongst the fans.
Cortese may have brought Poch to the club but the owners paid the wages and when he came here he was little known. If he goes to Spurs he will regret it., it won't work for him there and the Spurs fans have been on bloggs already saying his win ratio is not good enough for a club like Spurs. They want someone with proven quality.
The Sun says as it ever does Liverpool will offer 28 mill for Lallana and Lovren, yeah right like that will be accepted if it happens.
We need the Cortese steel more than ever and it is badly missing.

The club needs to take media speculation seriously, because it has a very real effect on fans, you know, those people who make professional football possible.

So, it is about time the club made a statement. The silence is being interpreted as "Yes, we are in the process of selling out, cashing in, and leaving our ambitions".

If the club is NOT doing this, it must be stated! That is the rational thing to do.

If the club does NOT make a statement, then fans must be interpreting correctly.

So why not just say it like it is. The truth will be revealed in the end anyway.

All this candid communication that was promised, we need it now!

This post is what I find such a shame. People clearly believed what Les Reed said. Why wouldn't they? The simple reality is that players I.e. Lallana and Shaw want to move to other clubs! Shaw has been itching to leave for the past 3 or 4 seasons. The club wouldn't sell him. They saw they'd get more for him later. They were right. These two want to be at bigger clubs where champions league football is played. Bigger crowds, more money. It's as simple as that. What the club said through reed bore no resemblance to reality.

Cortese may have brought Poch to the club but the owners paid the wages and when he came here he was little known. If he goes to Spurs he will regret it., it won't work for him there and the Spurs fans have been on bloggs already saying his win ratio is not good enough for a club like Spurs. They want someone with proven quality.
The Sun says as it ever does Liverpool will offer 28 mill for Lallana and Lovren, yeah right like that will be accepted if it happens.
We need the Cortese steel more than ever and it is badly missing.

all i read is blah blah blah.......money talks in football fact, football is a business and way of life fact, saints is a employment for the players fact, in real life.....like us all we all look for better opportunities, but money to further our careers and achievements ....so stop deluding yourselves fact, this happens get over it, your club... going on past transfers are a selling club fact! you have a great youth policy everyone knows this and full credit to you, but you can't rely just on this as you won't progress.

Lallana and Shaw know this thats why there moving......

If Shaw has been itching to leave for a big club for the last 3 or 4 years, why did he sign a contract last year?

The club needs to take media speculation seriously, because it has a very real effect on fans, you know, those people who make professional football possible.

So, it is about time the club made a statement. The silence is being interpreted as "Yes, we are in the process of selling out, cashing in, and leaving our ambitions".

If the club is NOT doing this, it must be stated! That is the rational thing to do.

If the club does NOT make a statement, then fans must be interpreting correctly.

So why not just say it like it is. The truth will be revealed in the end anyway.

All this candid communication that was promised, we need it now!
The club made a statement via Les Reed Why don't you and others believe it

Having said that would it be such a disaster if MoPo leaves for Spurs and we got De Boer I'd be well happy with that
This post is what I find such a shame. People clearly believed what Les Reed said. Why wouldn't they? The simple reality is that players I.e. Lallana and Shaw want to move to other clubs! Shaw has been itching to leave for the past 3 or 4 seasons. The club wouldn't sell him. They saw they'd get more for him later. They were right. These two want to be at bigger clubs where champions league football is played. Bigger crowds, more money. It's as simple as that. What the club said through reed bore no resemblance to reality.
Shaw signed his contract last year when he became 18. That doesn't suggest he "has been itching to leave for the past 3 or 4 seasons."

Also, if I remember correctly, the club could not have refused to sell him because he was out of contract and and was therefore free to sign for anyone he wanted.
