I feel if Azza hadn't allied himself with Kaboul and Ade back at the start, he could have really got on in Pochs team. Had all the application and threat he likes.

Meanwhile Conte and Jose exchange Trumplike insults. Classy
Couldn't agree more. Pochettino is a very classy guy - he always shows respect to the other managers, never moans or makes excuses. Treats people well. It is a winning formula. In this article he chose to use a translator - which free's him from his somewhat 'wooden' articulation when he is using English. He has the good sense to return to his mother tongue when talking about something sensitive like mental health.

That said for the football interviews I admire the way he does his best to talk in our language, and is improving - despite not being a natural linguist.

He is way above trading insults. He has real class.
