Tottenham: Mauricio Pochettino to Spurs update

Tottenham: Mauricio Pochettino to Spurs update - Follow up

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is personally eyeing former boss Mauricio Pochettino as an option to replace manager Antonio Conte.

The Lowdown: Conte future uncertain…

The future of Spurs’ current head coach remains uncertain with his contract expiring at the end of this Premier League season.

While Tottenham do have an option to extend his stay by a further year, it is believed that a departure is possible for the Italian with reports suggesting that Levy has already identified managerial targets.

One of those is Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi, according to reports, with Lilywhites chiefs even being impressed by what they’ve seen from Sassuolo’s former boss.

The Latest: Levy eyes Pochettino…

Writing for GiveMeSport, reporter Dean Jones has claimed Levy personally wants Pochettino to replace Conte if he leaves.

The report adds that the 50-year-old is ‘of interest’ to Tottenham’s chairman, even if some ‘senior figures’ don’t entirely agree with the prospect of a Pochettino reunion.

This comes as Spurs insiders ‘admit’ it is ‘feasible’ this is Conte’s final season in charge.

The Verdict: Perfect man…

As a coach who knows the club inside-out, has experience working with members of the squad and is proven in the Premier League – we believe Pochettino would be the ideal Conte replacement.

The former Tottenham boss famously operated with little backing during his time at N17 and still managed to get the very best out of his squad.

How much did Spurs pay to sign future legend and fan favourite David Ginola?

Spurs’ unlikely road to the Champions League final in 2019 is real evidence of this, and since departing, Pochettino has gained valuable experience at Paris-Saint Germain.

The Argentine guided them to a Ligue 1 title triumph last year whilst also clinching two other major honours during his time in France.

Called a ‘world class‘ coach for his brilliant job at Spurs by Jamie O’Hara, we believe Pochettino should be the standout candidate.
