Tottenham figures ‘serious over Pochettino return’ after PSG headache

Senior figures at Tottenham are reportedly “serious” over a move to bring former manager Mauricio Pochettino back to the club from Paris Saint-Germain.

Pochettino had a mostly successful five-year spell in charge of Spurs, guiding them to the 2019 Champions League final and a perennial spot in the top four of the Premier League.

He also instilled a progressive and attacking style of football at the club, which chairman Daniel Levy has said he would like to see return to Spurs.

Though the Argentine’s reign ended in disappointment, with Levy sacking him in November 2019 with the club 14th , he is emerging as a serious contender to return to the club’s dugout.

Pochettino is currently in charge of Ligue 1 giants PSG, but his time at the club has not turned out as hoped.

On Sunday, the club lost their title of French champions to Lille after a disappointing campaign which saw them lose eight league games.

Now, it appears that Tottenham chiefs are eyeing a move to bring Pochettino back to the club after the failure of Jose Mourinho’s reign.

With the club requiring a serious rebuild after an underwhelming seventh-placed finish and Harry Kane agitating for a departure, Pochettino’s name has risen to the top of the shortlist.

The Independent report that some at Spurs are “seriously suggesting” they should look to reappoint Pochettino, with the next manager needing to excite the fans amid unhappiness at the club.

In a major boost to such a move, it is stated that the 49-year-old has found life in the French capital “more of a headache” than he first thought.

With the Argentine already under pressure having failed to guide PSG to the minimum requirement of a league title, he could now be “open” to a return to Spurs.

While Spurs fans would surely love to see their club bring back a manager who led them to their highest league finish since 1963, not everyone will be delighted with his return.

It is claimed that even Pochettino’s reappointment would not be enough to keep wantaway striker Kane at the club, with the Englishman “desperate” to leave.
