Pochettino: Ipswich is a Great Club With a Great Manager
Friday, 19th Jan 2018 21:36
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says Town are a “great club with a great manager” and believes 20-year-old centre-half Cameron Carter-Vickers will improve his game while on loan with the Blues.
USA international Carter-Vickers joined Town on loan for the rest of the season earlier today having been recalled from Sheffield United, where he made 18 starts and scored one goal, coincidentally at tomorrow’s opponents Bolton on his Blades debut.
Having come through the Spurs academy, he has made four senior starts, two in the FA Cup and two in the EFL Cup, all last season.
"Yesterday he was training with us and he was in a very good mood,” Pochettino said at his press conference earlier today.
"It was a great experience in Sheffield and we made a quick decision to move [him] to Ipswich. He’s going to learn a lot.
"It's a great club with a great manager and it can help him to improve his game. If he deserves to play games, that is important always.”
Pochettino once said he believed Southend-born Carter-Vickers, who is contracted to Tottenham until the summer of 2020, “can be one of the best centre-backs in England in the future” and he expects him to break into his team eventually.
"Yes, of course [he has a future at Spurs]. [Going on loan is] a great experience for the young players. After two years training with us, he deserves to play.
“He needs to build his career. We’re thinking one day he can come back and have success at Tottenham.”

Why are there so many Premiership & Championship clubs still seeking managers when this site has more experts, more qualified than even Pochettino & Guardiolas on here ?????

Like him or loathe him, MM has a nose for loan players. He may have made errors of judgement in his conduct but if he goes we will be apprehensive about the club's ability to pick up players under the radar. I think MM will go anyway as he simply wants to prove that he is not the idiot that some posters make him out to be. For now let's see what the young Spurs centre back can do for us.

Agree Bert. We’ve been lucky to have one of Fraser, Lawrence and Celina in the last 3 years. All relatively unknown upon joining. Does make you wonder what signings we could pull off if he was given the backing some clubs are

Well done all at ITFC involved in bringing CCV to the Club, an International player with a promising future. Oh, and i gave the first reply, Bluedan an up vote by mistake, should of been a down! COYB.

Have never doubted MMS ability to spot players and if he is backed to get them in. Also he has been generally good in financial dealings. The problem areas are his often negative tactics, him playing people out of their best positions and his unnecessarily derisive/offensive attitude to fans at times. If he was backed with some significant money to bring in more quality we would be in the Premier League. I consider that we are where we are because that is where Marcus Evans is happiest from from his interests.

That said welcome to the Ipswich Town treadmill Cameron hope things go well for you

Well done Bryan Klug, for your work with the Academy and your Spurs connection, a good young player coming our way.
MM has had to work with peanuts but keeps us afloat because of his name in the game.
We always get a gem, two this year in Celina and also Connolly, bad luck with injuries have stunted our chance of a really good push forward, but only 4 points off of a play off chance. Now is the time for 'real' Town supporters to get down to Portman Road and get loud.

I don’t know, of course, but I suspect BK, with his Tottenham connections, deserves most of the praise here..

Classy from Poch. Nice touch recognising Ipswich as a great club.
Well done ITFC for making this one happen. Should work out for all involved!
|Pip50 added 08:15 - Jan 20|
That’s it then Mick won’t be picking him having been told what to do!
|BlueandTruesince82 added 08:24 - Jan 20|
Intercept, it 100% the lower league legend that is the beast.

Like him or loathe them, Bryan Klug and Joe Royle has a nose for loan players.
|Rensham added 08:31 - Jan 20|
With no money, a dead man walking at the helm. fans happy to watch anything as long as there is an ITFC badge on it, sliding down the table, the owner once again showing he has no appetite for the Prem. Now is the time to walk away from the whole stinking mess.
