Alasdair Gold has revealed that, while Mauricio Pochettino’s future at Paris Saint-Germain remains uncertain, he has not yet had contact with Tottenham in regards to a potential return to the club.
The Lowdown: Manager search continues
The managerial position at Spurs remains vacant as Daniel Levy continues his search for the next man to step into the hot seat.
The Latest: Pochettino future uncertain but not yet in Spurs frame
As it stands, PSG are three points behind Ligue 1 leaders Lille with just two games left to play (BBC), so it seems unlikely that they will retain their league crown.
In an article for football.london, Gold has said that the 49-year-old’s future at the Parc des Princes is up in the air, but added that there has not yet been any contact between the Argentine and Levy.
The Verdict: Up in the air
Pochettino replaced Thomas Tuchel at PSG in December of last year on an 18-month contract – he will earn £467,000 per month (gentside.co.uk), or about £8.4m overall. The Parisians have won seven of the last eight league titles in France, so to not finish top of the table would be a huge disappointment.
Would you take Pochettino back?
Pochettino remains a hugely popular figure from his time in north London (The Boot Room) and there could well be a contingent of the support who would welcome him back with open arms.
However, returning to his former club, who are further away from success than PSG, could be perceived as a step backwards, so it remains to be seen what the next few months hold for the former Southampton manager.
In other news, Levy is reportedly desperate to hire this man for Spurs.
