Tottenham boss Pochettino: Wenger will be the last 'total power' manager we see

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino believes Arsene Wenger is the last of the "power over everything" manager.

Spurs host Arsenal at Wembley today.

"It's difficult [to be like Wenger]," Pochettino he said. "For different reasons, it is tough. Maybe we are talking about one of the last managers to be able to apply this power over everything in a football club.

"The owners are different these days. Before, England was a little bit of a paradise for football.

"It was unique: there was respect for projects, for people, respect for managers, and even when I arrived at Southampton five years ago, it was still there.

Now Pochettino sees more similarities with how clubs on the continent operate.

He added: "But now the owners are different. When English football started to integrate more with European football, England started to share the Latin culture more.

"And in the last few years, everything that has happened in the English game is similar to what would happen in another European country."
