Did Bentaleb lose the trust of Pochettino?


Did Bentaleb lose the trust of Pochettino?

Mauricio Pochettini has made his decision on at least three players it seems, two of them we knew already, and one is now confirmed. There had been no word coming out of White Hart Lane but in a press conference in Australia Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that Nabil Bentaleb did not feature in his plans for the forthcoming season after signing a five-year contract last summer.

There has been speculation he is injured, here has been speculation thta his relationship with Pochettino has broken down, that he has lost his trust. It seems the latter is the case.

His relationship with Pochettino has taken a battering with awfully long contract negotiations that didn't endear himself to anyone, given he was demanding top wages. The inference was thta he was too big for his boots and one has to qustion whether he was following Pochettino's directions for his role, or playing his own game like Andros Townsend. That didn't end happily either.

When you lose Pochettino's trust, it spells the end for any player. As much as Bentaleb has been working hard in training, and by all accounts he has been, that trust is difficult to repair, impossible in this situation it seems. If you fall out with Pochettino there is rarely a way back.

The talk of a slight injury may just have been a smokescreen, but the market has now been alerted and offers will come in for a very promising player who it has been rumoured we rate at £20-million. That sound a bit steep, but then the market is stupid at the moment with daft amounts being paid for payers who aren't worth it.

Plenty of Premier League clubs will enquire as will cubs from abroad so he'll have a choice of destination that's for sure and will no doubt develop into a decent player. He has already shown he is good enough to play international football when producing good performances for Algeria at the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.
