‘I wish Pochettino a bright future!’ – Kipchoge sends emotional message to Wanyama's former boss

World marathon record holder Eliud Kipchoge has paid an emotional tribute to Mauricio Pochettino after he was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur.

Pochettino was let go on Tuesday, with Tottenham struggling in the league after picking up just three wins from their opening 12 games.

The 47-year-old had transformed Spurs' fortunes after arriving from Southampton in 2014, and although he failed to win a trophy he took the club to the Champions League final for the first time in their history just six months ago.

This season they were knocked out of the League Cup by fourth-tier Colchester United and suffered an embarrassing 7-2 defeat at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
