According to The Sun, Mauricio Pochettino wants a return to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
The Lowdown: Pochettino struggles in France
Pochettino left Tottenham towards the end of 2019 to be replaced by Jose Mourinho. He eventually took the Paris Saint-Germain job a year later, taking over from Thomas Tuchel.
However, he has not had the best of times in the French capital – his PSG side were beaten to the Ligue 1 title by Lille even though Pochettino has averaged 2.21 points per game since moving to the Parc des Princes (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Poch wants Spurs return
Now, it is being reported Pochettino could return to north London and wants a second crack with Tottenham.
The report also adds the Argentinian could be Spurs’ best chance of keeping Harry Kane at the club.
The Verdict: Dilemma
Pochettino did a fantastic job at Tottenham – Dele Alli once admitted he is an ‘amazing’ tactician. Many will point out he failed to win a trophy during his time there, but he turned the Lilywhites into a regular Champions League outfit, while they even reached the final of that competition in 2019, losing 2-0 to Liverpool in Madrid.
Would you take Pochettino back?
He also seemingly had a great relationship with Harry Kane, who recently revealed his desire to leave Tottenham (Sky Sports). Therefore, there are plenty of reasons as to why a return to Spurs could work out. On the other hand, though, it would feel like a step backwards – both parties have moved on since their previous partnership.
In other news, David Ornstein makes this Harry Kane claim.
