You say he's not a manager in a traditional sense because he uses scouts...but all past managers who were the clear decision makers on the football side of a club have always used scouts. It's not a departure that Pochettino uses them also.Every manager in world football bar a minor number rely on scouts D. A manager can have final say on whatever signings they want before they themselves or a higher up conducts a deal, the player still comes from a scout.
And it's not like Spurs have done what Leicester did in signing unknown gems. They've signed quite a number of known players that are currently some of their best.
He's a brilliant coach. One of the world's best but he's not a manager in the traditional sense.
I haven't seen anything yet to persuade me that Pochettino doesn't do exaclty what Moyes and Martinez did while here and what their predecessors also did.
I think we're in danger of giving exclusive knowledge of signing players to a DoF, as if it cant possibly be done any other way. That's nonsense. It's been done very successfully.
