Mauricio Pochettino says he feels short-changed by the Amazon Prime Video documentary that charts his final months as Tottenham manager.
Furthermore, his assistant Jesus Perez is so upset after working tirelessly to sell the project to the players after it was given the green light by chairman Daniel Levy that he cannot bring himself to watch it.
Speaking about the All or Nothing series in which the makers chose to focus mainly on new manager Jose Mourinho on the Between the Lines podcast, Pochettino said: “We only watched the first 25 minutes, until we left the club.

“Five and a half years at the club and we’re only in the scenario for 25 minutes, trying to justify why we left the club.
“It was very difficult to say yes to open the door to Amazon, who came to Tottenham at a very difficult moment for us.
“I feel sorry for Jesus, because he spent time from 7am trying to help the Amazon people to make that all work with the players, with the staff, with everything. And to be honest,
“I understand, because it’s a documentary that’s trying to put the club in a good place. The club is not going to open the door to Amazon to create a problem after the documentary.
“Jesus was like a superman. He spent two or three hours in the morning, two or three hours in the evening, across five months, trying to coordinate everything.
“I know he’s not going to watch the documentary because it’s tough and it’s painful for him because he spent a lot of time and effort.
“But after 25 minutes watching, I think Jesus appeared one time.”

Pochettino insists he still “loves” the club and wishes them success in the future, adding: “I still love the fans, I still love the club, and of course, I have a different appreciation for Daniel and the people that work there and the players.
“Jose is a very good friend, I wish them all the best and that they can achieve some titles that Daniel can enjoy, and, of course, reflects all the effort that we were doing in the past to create the fantastic club that it is today.”
However, his focus is already on his next position.
“We are now in a new world, not only in life but in modern football, and now is a moment to wait, to be relaxed, to be calm, but at the same time, to be ready,” he continued.

“We are still working and trying to be better and to be ready for the next step for us. I cannot say what we need, it’s all about who is going to call us and it’s not going to depend on whether it’s a club at the top, or in the middle, or down (at the bottom).
“I think it’s going to be that we find some challenge and some connection with the people who are going to call.
“For us it has become unbelievably important to win, but at the same time to create some connection and to try to enjoy our job.”
