L’Equipe: L’equipe: Manolo Gabbiadini is not the answer to Mauricio Pochettino’s defence

It’s been a busy week for Manolo Galliani, but he’s not the only one having a go at Mauricio “the man” Pochettinos defence.
The Argentine has been accused of failing to protect the defence and for that he’s given up his spot on the bench.
Galliani has made no secret of his dislike of Pochettinas tactics, and it appears the former Juventus and Inter boss has no intention of making a change.
According to the Mirror, the coach has been told to stay in his role.
“He’s a very demanding coach and he’s always been very honest and honest with me,” Galliani told the paper.
“I have nothing to hide.
He told me he wanted me on the field.
I respect him as a coach, I respect what he has done for me, but I think he has the right to make his own decisions.”

In his last game, against Inter, he was booed by the home fans after being shown the red card for a late tackle on Sergio Ramos.
“They said he wasn’t good enough,” the defender told the publication.
“I don’t know why, because he’s a good player.
It’s all football.
You need to be a professional.”
Gabbiadori was instrumental in the Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain, and is expected to be included in the Spurs squad for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Southampton.
The defender, who was handed his first start of the season in Wednesday’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool, said he is ready for the challenge of Pocahts side.
“This game is not a training game,” he said.
“This is a real game.
It is an opportunity to prove myself and show my quality.
It has been a big season for me and I am really looking forward to playing this game.”
