‘Five and a half years and we’re only in it for 25 minutes’: Mauricio Pochettino reveals he STOPPED watching the Tottenham season All or Nothing documentary after they covered up his departure (and his assistant Jesus Perez avoided the show all the way!)
- Mauricio Pochettino was not impressed with the Tottenham documentary
- Amazon’s hit nine-part Everything or nothing series only lasted 25 minutes
- His dismissal was covered up, and Pochettino explained that he hadn’t seen everything
- Pochettino especially felt pain for assistant Jesus Perez, who did not make the cut
Mauricio Pochettino says he was only 25 minutes from Tottenham Everything or nothing Amazon series and revealed that his assistant Jesus Perez found it too painful to watch after brushing out.
The end of Pochettino’s reign hardly appears in the nine-part series, despite being one of the main storylines of the 2019-2020 Spurs campaign.
And he criticized Amazon for shortening its five-and-a-half-year successful run to less than half an episode and their treatment of Perez.

Pochettino admits he felt five years at the club, which amounted to 25 minutes, was difficult
Speak on the Between the lines podcast, Pochettino said: ‘Me and Jesus, we only watched the first 25 minutes, until we left the club. We watched, and to be fair, it was correct.
It was like, ‘OK, we have to say Jesus, Toni, Miguel, Sebastiano and Mauricio were there,’ but it has nothing to do with the documentary.
Okay, five and a half years (at the club) and we’re only in the scenario for 25 minutes trying to justify why we left the club.

‘But I understand, because it is a documentary that tries to get the club in a good place. The club is not going to open the door to Amazon to create a problem after the documentary.
‘I feel sorry for Jesus. I think Jesus appeared with me one time.
Jesus was like a superman. He spent two or three hours in the morning, two or three hours in the evening, divided over three, four, five months, trying to coordinate everything.
‘I know he’s not going to watch the documentary because it’s difficult and it’s painful for him because he put a lot of time and effort into it. And of course I can feel how he feels, you know. ‘
