Pochettino Sr, who is still currently without a club, is seen wearing a Tottenham t-shirt - eight months after leaving the club.

The youngster joined the club's academy three years ago, and has since progressed from the club's U18 to their U23 side.

He is yet to make a first-team appearance for the club, with Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura, Heung-Min Son and Steven Bergwijn ahead of him in the pecking order.
