The world of football is very unpredictable. This is certainly the case for Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.
One moment you are flying high, the next moment your club is in a rut. The manager has suffered a three match losing streak for the first time since he took charge of The Lilywhites.
Whilst it seemed, and still seems, unimaginable that the Argentinian would be given the marching orders by Daniel Levy, the future is unclear. He would have to have a truly shocking season to be let go, but what is worse is the interest from other clubs.
José Mourinho’s woes at Man United mean the northern giants may be looking for a new manager very soon. Indeed, Pochettino will surely be one of the very first names on most clubs in Europe’s wishlists.
With that in mind, here are THREE managers that are currently available to take the reins in north London if Pochettino was to go…
Two seasons in charge, one Premier League title and one FA Cup. That is a very good return for Antonio Conte.
The animated Italian was let go by Chelsea in the summer after dropping out of the top four in his second season. But there is no shame in being fired from the London club.
He is obviously a very good manager, however, his slightly more conservative style of football may clash with the players and culture that Pochettino has created, meaning this may not be the most successful move.
Many believe that former West Ham manager Slaven Bilić was treated unfairly by The Hammers. In fact, the only reason he may have been sacked was that he could not live up to the high standards that he had created for the club.
Nonetheless, he left with one of the best records that a West Ham manager has had in a very long time.
Given a bigger budget, resources and time, who knows what he could achieve at White Hart Lane.
The Austrian Ralph Hasenhüttle has had one of the most interesting success stories in Europe over the past few years.
He Austrian guided the newcomers to the Bundesliga RB Leipzig to second-place and Champions League qualification in his first season in charge, with a brand of high tempo, progressive football.
This style would suit Tottenham perfectly, and the manager is still without a job.
