Nevertheless, that did not bring the same happiness to the Argentine as he had after preventing Espanyol from going down to the Segunda Division in 2009.
“My greatest joy as a coach was in Almeria when we were saved [from relegation] because of what it meant to the whole Espanyol family…” Pochettino said.
But the former Espanyol boss had praise for his players.
