Tottenham Hotspur are a club on the rise. The fans have loved their time under Mauricio Pochettino and he is undoubtedly the club’s most successful ever manager in the Premier League era. However, if his head is turned by the unrelenting interest from the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid, The Telegraph reports that Daniel Levy could be eyeing up Eddie Howe as a replacement.

Eddie Howe is one of the brightest young managers in the world at the moment. The Dean Court hero has guided his lowly Bournemouth side from the Championship to the Premier League and has established the Cherries as top-flight regulars, with a number of superb signings over his time at the club coupling up with the 40-year-old’s forward-thinking approach to how football should be played making for a great mix at the Vitality Stadium.
If Mauricio Pochettino does call time on his Tottenham days, whilst the fans will be devastated, one of the key candidates for the role will have to be Howe. He knows the league, he’s a young English manager and he’d be able to continue Tottenham’s project that has been started by Pochettino, with the aim being winning the Premier League sooner or later. It’s a long-shot, but if Poch goes and Howe comes, good things could be on the horizon for the Lilywhites.

Only manager who wouldn’t demand big money signings and still do well

Plays great football with Bournemouth operating with a small budget so right up levys street but overall a good young manager the way Madrid are going it might be sooner than we think ?

Whilst The Llilywhites hate the idea of Pochettino walking away, it’s comforting for them to hear that the club could move for a sensible young manager in Howe as opposed to appointing another laugh stock as they’ve done multiple times in the past.Like what the TT have on offer?
