Writing on Twitter, reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has dropped a claim on former manager Mauricio Pochettino amid his links to a sensational north London return.
The Lowdown: Pochettino linked with Spurs reunion
In recent days, reports have emerged linking Pochettino with the Spurs managerial vacancy around a year and a half after he was sacked by chairman Daniel Levy.
Indeed, the Sun recently claimed that Levy is considering the Argentine as a candidate with Pochettino himself seriously thinking about returning to the Spurs managerial helm.
Pochettino is currently struggling with Ligue 1 giants Paris-Saint Germain with a possible return to Spurs now being touted.
The Latest: Gold drops Pochettino claim
Writing on Twitter, football.london journalist Gold believes that while he isn’t currently a candidate, he would ‘come into the frame’ if his situation changes at PSG and he showed genuine interest in the role.
“On Poch, understand Spurs are pushing on with recruitment process, hoping to appoint within 7-10 days,” Gold explained on his social media.
“Poch is not currently a candidate, but if his situation changes at PSG and he showed interest, he would come into the frame.
“Let’s be honest, the ideal candidate profile is him.”
The Verdict: Ideal candidate indeed…
In this case, who better than the man himself?
However, as per Gold’s claim, he is not currently a candidate and unless something changes in the next few days, Spurs will indeed have to settle for a manager with similar traits but not quite the 49-year-old.
Lauded as a ‘football genius’ by former Spurs keeper Heurelho Gomes in an interview with ESPN Brasil near the end of last year, as translated by Sport Witness, Lilywhites supporters may be hoping he does indeed ‘come into the frame’.
