Some Newcastle United fans are split as to whether they would like former Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino to be the Tyneside club’s next coach after the 48-year old admitted his interest in holding talks with the Magpies, according to Football Insider.
A source from St. James’ Park told the outlet that the Toon are already in contact with some leading agents as they assess managerial candidates from the ‘top tier’ to replace Steve Bruce this summer.
As per the outlet, ‘Poch’ is reportedly a target for the prospective new owners and the word from the Argentine’s camp is that he would consider any ambitious proposals as he plots his next step in management.
Pochettino has apparently hinted that his next job will be in England or Spain, but does not appear fixated with one of Europe’s elite.
These NUFC supporters seem split as to whether hiring the ex-Spurs man as boss would be a good idea after hearing the news on Twitter:

Keeps up the Newcastle tradition of not winning any trophies. Seems a good fit
