Mauricio Pochettino : Arsene Wenger The Last Of His Kind

Mauricio Pochettino : Arsene Wenger The Last Of His Kind

Arsene Wenger has been the Boss at Arsenal since 1996 and even when there was a disagreement with the fans over the Gunners poor form last season, the Frenchman was still able to secure a contract extension.

According to the Tottenham Hotspur Boss, it will be almost impossible for any manager to last as long as the Arsenal boss in this Premier League era, due to the impatience of club owners.

Pochettino has spent 3½ years at the North London club and is the fourth longest serving manager behind Bournemouth's Eddie Howe and Burnley boss Sean Dyche, who have both spent above five years at their present clubs. Ahead of the north London derby he said :

"It's difficult to be like Wenger," Pochettino told reporters. "For different reasons, it is tough. Maybe we are talking about one of the last managers to be able to apply this power over everything in a football club.
"The owners are different these days. 

Before, England was a little bit of a paradise for football. It was unique: there was respect for projects, for people, respect for managers, and even when I arrived at Southampton five years ago, it was still there.

"But now the owners are different. When English football started to integrate more with European football, England started to share the Latin culture more. And in the last few years, everything that has happened in the English game is similar to what would happen in another European country."
