Tottenham chief Mauricio Pochettino piled into both the Arsenal and Chelsea boss, following the Stamford Bridge man Antonio Contes comments this week

Peoples Digest Online – TOTTENHAM boss Mauricio Pochettino has taken a sensational swipe at both Arsene Wenger AND Antonio Conte in one fell swoop. The Spurs chief hit back at the Chelsea man after he suggested the White Hart Lane outfit should win the league… because Poch had been there longer. However, in hitting back, Pochettino also took a massive swipe at Arsenal boss Wenger, saying if that’s the formula for success, the Frenchman should be winning the league every season.

It started off earlier this week when Conte – despite being one game from victory – claimed Spurs were in the driver’s seat as Pochettino has been at the club longer.

However the Argentine boss hit back, saying: “I understand him.

“It’s difficult for him because he was always a manager who liked to work with and to develop young talent. “It’s difficult when you sign for a club like Chelsea and you have the pressure to win and you spend the money that they spent on David Luiz, Marcos Alonso, Batshuayi and [N’Golo] Kante. “I totally understand but I don’t know if I agree with him that it’s an advantage.”

Yet Pochettino carried on, taking a swipe at Arsenal boss Wenger, adding: “Arsene Wenger should win the league every season because he is 20 years in charge, if that is the right way to measure our advantage”I think it’s not fair to measure with me, as it is to measure with Wenger. Twenty years is a massive advantage. Why not win every season? “It’s not a criticism [of Wenger]. It was not the best comment from him [Conte].”
