Is Mauricio Pochettino thinking of returning to Tottenham Hotspur?
Mauricio Pochettino managed Tottenham Hotspur between 2014-19. Although he failed to win a single title with the Londoner, the side finished as the runner-up in a couple of competitions, including the UEFA Champions League. He is currently managing PSG.
English giant Tottenham Hotspur had a highly inconsistent season in the English Premier League 2020-21, finishing in the seventh spot, barely managing a European place. It all happened under manager Jose Mourinho before being let go a couple of months back while Ryan Mason managed the season remaining.
Nevertheless, looking forward to a torrid season in 2021-22, Spurs continue hunting for a full-time manager. While some top names are doing rounds, recent reports suggest that former club manager Mauricio Pochettino could be back in the fray.
According to a report by The Guardian, Tottenham has held talks with the Argentine for a return to London. At the same time, the latter himself is open to returning with Spurs for the job again, despite being sacked 18 months ago.
Pochettino is currently managing Paris Saint-Germain, while he had a difficult season. The side failed to retain the Ligue 1 crown and was also ousted in the semis of the UEFA Champions League.
Nevertheless, he still helped the side win the Coupe de France and Trophée des Champions titles. Although PSG would be reluctant to lose Pochettino now, it would have its eyes on him next season, as it eyes Ligue 1 and UCL glory.
Earlier, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy had admitted that he would love to have Pochettino back at Spurs for what he had done for the club. "Why not? I don't close the door on anything. Mauricio did a fantastic job; we are very grateful. I wish him all the best for the future. I'm still in contact with him. My relationship is very good with him. It just got to the point where it felt we needed a divorce," he had told Evening Standard in 2019 following Pochettino's sacking.
