Mauricio Pochettino is still drawing admiration from some of Europe’s biggest clubs despite Tottenham’s torrid start to the season, according to the London Evening Standard.
Spurs have endured a dreadful week, suffering back-to-back defeats to Bayern Munich and Brighton, both of which were humiliating in their own way. Bayern’s 7-2 humbling was Tottenham’s record home defeat, while the Londoners were abysmal in all areas of the pitch against Brighton.
As a result, Pochettino’s job security and reputation have been questioned of late, though he doesn’t appear to be under any immediate threat of the sack. For some time now, however, the Argentinian has been linked with a move to a European giant – and clubs of that level don’t appear to have been put off by recent events.
The Evening Standard claims Manchester United, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are all ‘admirers’ of Pochettino. United are the most likely to be looking for a new manager in the near future given the team’s dreadful form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Depending on how the next few weeks go, Spurs will be hoping United prefer other candidates to Pochettino, who could yet improve the current mood and results in north London.
