Mauricio Pochettino has snubbed Tottenham Hotspurs players when asked to name the best three Premier League players.
In a Q&A session with Sky Sports, the Argentine decided to go with Manchester City duo of Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero with Liverpool striker Firminho completing his list.
"(Kevin) De Bruyne, one. (Sergio) Aguero. Another? De Bruyne is going to be unfair, I don't know what I can tell you, (Roberto) Firmino, maybe? Yes, but there are hundreds of players I can describe," Pochettino said.
It will come as a surprise for Spurs fans and maybe rival fans with the manager having managed some of the best talents in England including the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.
His choices though cant be questioned since De Bruyne is considered one of the best midfielders in the league as he leads the assists charts this season after providing 16 goals with Aguero being one of the most lethal goal scorers.
Questions, however, might be raised on his selection of Firminho considering there are two players at Liverpool in Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah who have scored more goals than the Brazilian.
Pochettinho has been jobless since being sacked by Spurs last November with his place taken by Jose Mourinho.
