Tottenham: Pochettino ‘lazy’ option to replace Conte

Tottenham: Pochettino 'lazy' option to replace Conte - Premier League News

Journalist Scott Saunders of 90min believes Tottenham could make a ‘mistake’ by re-hiring the heavily-linked Mauricio Pochettino.

The Lowdown: Pochettinon eyeing job…

According to recent reports, former Spurs coach and fan favourite Pochettino is a hot contender for the role and is believed to be eyeing a return to N17.

The Argentine is out of work after leaving Paris-Saint Germain last year with Antonio Conte‘s future looking more and more uncertain.

Conte’s contract expires at the end of this campaign and Tottenham’s aggregate defeat to AC Milan in the Champions League has only cemented belief he could leave.

The Latest: Saunders bemoans ‘lazy’ Pochettino option…

Taking to Twitter, Saunders has bemoaned the option of Pochettino to replace Conte – calling it a ‘mistake’.

He explained:

“Spurs will get Pochettino back & repeat the cycle, but that’s a mistake IMO. Walking into the same rebuild he called for years ago. Spurs don’t support their managers. Pochettino won’t hit the heights he hit before and definitely not go a step further – too many rich rivals.”

Saunders went on to state further that the 51-year-old is a ‘popular, lazy option‘ and claims Brentford boss Thomas Frank would be an ideal alternative.

The Verdict: Disagree…

We disagree with that Pochettino would in fact be the lazy option, especially since he already knows the club, encourages an attacking brand of football and is currently a free agent.

How much did Spurs pay to sign future legend and fan favourite David Ginola?

The former Southampton boss represents both a managerial option of real quality and one of very little financial risk given Pochettino’s out-of-work status.

His credentials include guiding Tottenham to a Champions League final in 2019 and arguably bringing the club more success than any other manager of recent times.

Called a ‘genius’ by former Spurs keeper Heurelho Gomes, Pochettino clearly won many admirers in the Spurs dressing room and could feasibly get them back on track whilst bringing back the feel good factor.
