Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs have ‘already begun’ Mauricio Pochettino talks

Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs have 'already begun' Mauricio Pochettino talks - Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly ‘already begun’ talks for Mauricio Pochettino to potentially replace Antonio Conte as manager.

The Lowdown: Conte’s future

As per Italian football journalist Gianluca di Marzio, Conte has asked to put the contract offer from Tottenham on ‘hold’, with his current deal set to expire in June.

Di Marzio adds that there is a ‘feeling’ that Conte will want to return to Italy, so may not take Spurs up on their contract offer.

The Latest: Pochettino ‘talks’

Taking to Twitter, TuttoMercatoWeb journalist Marco Conterio says that ‘talks have already begun’ for Pochettino’s return, and that the North London club are ‘already working’ on life without Conte:

“The #Tottenham is already working on the possible after Antonio Conte and talks have already begun for the return of Mauricio Pochettino to #THFC.”

The Verdict: Get Poch back?

There is no doubt that Poch was adored by the Tottenham fans during his time at the Lilywhites, especially for getting them to a UEFA Champions League final.

In contrast, fans seem to be losing faith in Conte by each game, as his style of play has been criticised, and they are now struggling to get results, with just one win in the Premier League since the restart after the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and a 2-0 loss at home to their biggest rivals Arsenal.

Sitting six points behind fourth-placed Manchester United, Conte looks like he may struggle to get Spurs into the Champions League spots this season, and so a change to Poch could be worthwhile in terms of getting the club back up to the heights of Champions League finals again.
