It has been well documented that some top managers do not see eye to eye with their players off the pitch with the demanding nature of professional football and the constant pressure to succeed in the top flight often causing several high profile manager-player fallout‘s in the past.
But Mauricio Pochettino has shown fans time and time again that he is a coach from a different mould with the Argentine often treating his players to lavish dinners after matches.
Staying true to his reputation for sharing close bonds with his players, Pochettino was once again seen with one of his players as cameras managed to spot the former Saints manager with Christian Eriksen in the midfielder’s native Denmark.
Photos of the pair dining in Copenhagen have been shared around social media by Spurs fans who were quick to sing praises of their manager for spending time with his players even during the summer break.
Leeds United endured another season to forget as the Peacocks failed to compete for promotion yet again and ended their season with a poor 13th placed finish in the championship.
Despite being one of of the most historical clubs around, Leeds have struggled to draw inspiration from their legacy and the club’s shortcomings this season marks the 11th time they have failed to gain promotion to the Premier League after being relegated way back in 2007.
While their performances on the pitch has been a let down, the marketing team at the club has been doing a good job behind the scenes as the club announced a new partnership deal with the 49ers Enterprises, the investment entity behind American football giants San Francisco 49ers.
With owner Andrea Radrizzani rumoured to have sold 10% of his shareholding in Leeds to the NFL entity, supporters will be hoping that the board decides to reinvest some of the newly found income to have a serious go at promotion next campaign.
Following the announcement first team stars Kemar Roofe and Bailey Peacock-Farrell were snapped in 49ers gear and photos of the duo posing with a football has been shared around Twitter by Leeds fans.

The custom shirt was probably a gift from one of her fans who seems to support Tottenham and eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice the American’s link to the North Londoners as soon as the video went online.

Gennaro Gattuso is widely know as one of the most fiercest characters to have ever stepped inside a football pitch with the former midfielder himself admitting in one of his interviews that every now and then ‘the animal inside would come out’.
But one instance that especially stands out was the infamous brawl he had with former Leeds and Manchester United striker Joe Jordon whilst Jordan was working under Harry Redknapp at Tottenham Hotspur.
With his AC Milan on the ropes against a vibrant Spurs side and poised to lose the Champions League clash, the hot-headed Italian got into a scuffle with Jordan and head-butted the then 60-year-old near the technical area right in front of a stunned Harry Redknapp.
While Gattuso apologized for his behavior the very next night, it seems peace has now finally been made between the pair seven years after the ugly incident as AC Milan’s official Twitter account released a photograph of the duo holding aloft a Joe Jordan shirt.
Water finally under the bridge – check out the photograph below:

With the whole world seemingly writing off Liverpool in the upcoming Champions League final, the Merseysiders seem to have found some support from Real’s rivals and Europa League winners Atletico Madrid.
Reports coming out of Spain make it look like the current holders have already retained Europe’s crown with the club’s honorary president Paco Gento also recently telling journalists that he feels the upcoming final with the Reds will be a “piece of cake” for his club.
While their achievements in Europe are unrivalled, Real Madrid should not get complacent about their chances against this exciting Liverpool side who have blown away Porto, Manchester City and Roma on route to Kiev and should definitely not be underestimated.
The support shown by Atletico supporters should be welcome by the Reds fans who will be pleased to have finally found some love from Spaniards after seemingly having been written off by the rest of the country.
