Morgan Schneirdelin played under Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino when they were both in Southampton. Their career went higher as Schneirdelin signed for Manchester United and his former manager joined Tottenham.
The 27-year-old who flopped during his time at United has vowed to help Pochettino by beating Chelsea.
He said: “Tottenham are the most impressive team I have seen, who play the most attractive football.
“Mauricio Pochettino is someone who changed my perspective of how I see football and how I looked at myself.
“When I was at Southampton, everyone liked him. Everyone likes him now and we still have a good relationship. What he is doing as a manager with Tottenham is amazing.
“I hope he gets the title – if not this season, then I am sure he is going to get it in the next few years because when I watch Tottenham play, I just say, ‘Wow!’ It’s very entertaining.
“You don’t need to be good at maths to know that if Spurs win and we beat Chelsea, it’s down to one point. After that, everything is possible.
“I am sure Tottenham think like this and hope we can win.”
