Ledley King: “Mauricio Pochettino is the right man but will take a little bit of time”

Former Tottenham centre-back Ledley King has said Mauricio Pochettino is the right man and needs time to put his plans into effect at White Hart Lane.

Pochettino`s start at Spurs has been mixed with good and bad performances winning three out of seven games. Victories over Southampton, QPR and West Ham have been great while defeats to Liverpool and West Brom at home notably the disappointing ones.

But, the Lilywhites legend and ambassador told talkSPORT what he thinks of Tottenham making the Champions League.

“It is going to be tough.

“There’s going to be six or seven teams thinking they have got a chance of the top four. We are one of them, but a lot of things would have to go right for us.”

King also gave Pochettino his backing saying the former Argentina defender was the right man for the job at White Hart Lane.

“I’m sure he will still want to bring in one or two players moving forward. He is still seeing who fits in with the style of play,” he said.

“It is going to take a little bit of time for him to get his thoughts and methods across, but we are confident he is the right man for the job.”
