Tottenham Hotspur manager
Mauricio Pochettino strengthened his scouting department
this week with the addition of Leicester City's Head of
Technical Scouting, Rob Mackenzie.
The move follows the appointment of Paul Mitchell as Head of Recruitment and Analysis in November of last year.
Mackenzie joins Tottenham after five and a half years at Leicester City, where he held a first team Performance Analysis role before being appointed Head of Technical Scouting. He was responsible for providing supplementary information to Head of Recruitment, Steve Walsh. He also highlighted and profiled European players and regularly observed games. He conducted both opposition match reports and individual player assessments.
His boss at Leicester
Steve Walsh previously worked under Josť Mourinho -
during his first spell at Chelsea - as Chief European
Scout. He also worked with former Middlesbrough player
Dave Mills. You can be sure that the experience around
him in the office at Leicester's training ground will
prove valuable in his new role at White Hart Lane.
A well educated individual, Mackenzie has a BSc (Hons) in Sports Science (Psychology) and a MSc in Psychology of Sport from Liverpool John Moores University. Recently, he completed a PhD in Performance Analysis in Professional Football at Loughborough University.
