Opinion: Why Pochettino Might Be Sacked Before The End Of This Season Due To His Attitude Towards Messi

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Roberto Pochettino who got appointed as Paris Saint-German head coach last season might be sacked if he continues treating the Argentine captain, Lionel Messi the way he does. Based on Lionel Messi's current form and stats, Mauricio Pochettino shouldn't have subbed the six-time world-best player of the year in yesterday's Ligue 1 game.

Since the arrival of Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-German, most of the club's responsibility has been laid upon the Argentine captain who has barely played 4 complete matches under Mauricio Pochettino. It was obvious that Messi was angry that he got subbed during their club's Ligue 1 game yesterday after refusing to shake hands with his coach.

While playing for Barcelona, we all could recall what happened to the previous managers who treated Lionel Messi badly, how the latter got sacked by the club's owner. Messi is a world-class player who deserves respect and time as well.

Some football analysts said Messi didn't make any positive impact in the game yesterday, but we should all understand that the Argentine captain is a playmaker who is still learning how to adapt to Pochettino's pattern of football.

Many people will want to compare the Argentine performance with Ronaldo's stats at Manchester United but they forget that these two have a separate position which they play in. Ronaldo plays as a striker while Messi is a midfield maestro who works his way into the attacking line with the ball.
