Watford boss Gracia: Pochettino among world best

Watford boss Javi Gracia has hailed the quality of Tottenham rival Mauricio Pochettino.

Gracia prepares to lock horns with Pochettino when Watford host Tottenham on Sunday.

He said: "I know him from Spain because he played at Espanyol and I played against him many times for other teams.

"I know him, I know the technical staff as well. And in this moment I think he is one of the best coaches, not only in England, but also the world as well.

"I think it [Sunday's televised clash] will be a good challenge for us [as a team] and for me as well."
