Is it getting dusty in here?

There’s still a Pochettino at Tottenham Hotspur, and once again briefly there was two. Tottenham U23 player Maurizio Pochettino, the son of former Spurs manager Mauricio, signed a new professional contract with the club and posted a photo on Instagram with his dad at his contract signing today.

And it’s adorable!

D’awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Pochettino the Younger stayed at Spurs even after his dad was sacked back in November, and apparently has done well! The 19-year old attacking midfielder has regularly playing with the U23s this season, scoring a goal and tallying one assist. He’s clearly done enough for the club to want to keep him around.

But let’s get back to that photo because assuming this photo is current Mauricio Pochettino was physically back on the Tottenham training ground and is wearing a Tottenham t-shirt and looks happy to be there and omg you guys I’m starting to misty-eyed.

Feel like pure s—t, just want him back.

Spurs have also released their full “retained” list on the Premier League website, and there aren’t a whole lot of surprises there either. Jan Vertonghen isn’t on the “retained” list and neither is Michel Vorm, which is confirmation that both will be released this summer. It doesn’t say who the other released players are, but that will probably come out in the coming days and will likely include the usual raft of academy grads. In the meantime, here’s the full list of retained players.
