Mauricio Pochettino may be having his struggles with Tottenham Hotspur this season, but it seems as though the Argentinian’s stock has remained high.
This is perhaps due to the fact that he was able to guide the club to the Champions League final last season, meaning that he has been given some leeway.
Will this be Mauricio Pochettino's last season at Tottenham?
The reputation he has forged has resulted in Bayern Munich considering him as a potential replacement for Niko Kovac if they dismiss the Croatian, as reported by The Daily Mail:
Bayern Munich ‘eye struggling Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino as a potential replacement for Niko Kovac’.

Many Spurs fans have been left shocked by this update, especially after Bayern beat Pochettino’s team 7-2 in the Champions League around a month ago.
In addition, Kovac has his Bayern side sitting second in the Bundesliga, while Spurs are currently placed 11th in the Premier League, so this is seen as a confusing prospect by plenty.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the report, including posts from amused Spurs fans, can be seen below:
Makes perfect sense Bayern beat us 7-2 so yeah sack the manager that got them that result and employ the one that was defeated! #Bayernsy
