Gary Neville has claimed that Mauricio Pochettino has taken Tottenham ‘as far as he can’ ahead of their clash with Manchester City on Monday evening.
The Spurs manager admitted on Sunday that he has never felt so low amid ongoing turmoil over the club’s new stadium, which they are yet to move into.
Despite the stadium’s issues, the north London side have enjoyed their best-ever start to a Premier League campaign but Neville believes Pochettino can’t do anymore than he already has at the club as they continue to operate on a tight budget.

Pochettino cited a complex summer and problems over the new stadium as his reasons
‘He has always managed things well and pushed things away,’ Neville said on Sky Sports. ‘They are not spending the money nowhere near the other top clubs.
‘Pochettino is a fantastic manager but he has always wanted to go the top, top European clubs and it feels to me as though he has gone as far as he can with Tottenham.’
Jamie Carragher believes the blame should be pinned on chairman Daniel Levy as he feels that the current crop of players won’t win any silverware as they lack the investment of the other top clubs around them.

Carragher said: ‘This team will break up in five years and people will say “did they win anything?” and it’s looking like they aren’t going to.
‘The players and managers won’t take the responsibility for that, it will fall on Daniel Levy. To be a top six club and have a net spend that they do is unacceptable.’
However, Neville disagreed with his colleague as he claimed that the Tottenham chairman is one of the best in the world in his role.
He said: ‘I think it’s wrong to pin it on Levy. I think he is one of the best in the world at what he does. He knows the rules of the game.’
