Tottenham Hotspur: Report makes major Mauricio Pochettino claim

Tottenham Hotspur: Report makes major Mauricio Pochettino claim -Tottenham Hotspur News

As per Football Insider, there has been a significant update involving Tottenham Hotspur and former fan favourite Mauricio Pochettino.

The Lowdown: Gaining traction?

Paris-Saint Germain’s failure to reach the Champions League quarter-finals has reportedly pushed him further towards the Parc des Princes exit door.

Pochettino’s future as manager of the Ligue 1 giants is in major doubt ahead of the summer, coming amid recent speculation surrounding a get-out-early clause in Antonio Conte’s contract at Tottenham.

Calciomercato claimed that Spurs’ head coach is flirting with the idea of activating that clause, which would allow him to leave at the end of this season, even though his contract actually expires in 2023.

PSG have apparently made contact with Conte as they eye replacements for Pochettino, and according to Football Insider, the latter is now eyeing a move back to north London.

The Latest: Report makes major Pochettinon claim…

The report claimed Pochettino ‘would jump at the chance’ to rejoin Spurs this summer, with the Argentine also ‘expected to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season’.

Football Insider added that a source close to the 50-year-old has revealed that he would ‘love’ a fairytale comeback to N17.

The Verdict: Big news…

Amid the Calciomercato development involving Conte, it appears that Pochettino’s emerging willingness to make a return to Tottenham couldn’t have come at a better time.

The Italian has consistently dropped hints that he could leave the Lilywhites if chairman Daniel Levy doesn’t share the 52-year-old’s ambition for the club.

Pochettino is arguably the best alternative to Conte when taking into account his Premier League managerial experience and familiarity behind the scenes at Spurs, with former Spurs goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes also calling him a ‘football genius’.

The Telegraph reported that Levy has shortlisted his former manager as a number one managerial target if Conte were to leave, so this update could mean that Spurs would have no problem reaching an agreement for PSG’s £129,000-per-week boss.
