Tottenham are in talks with Mauricio Pochettino over a shock return to north London, according to The Athletic.

Pochettino was sacked and replaced by Jose Mourinho in November 2019, but there have been whispers all week that Daniel Levy is trying to bring him back to the club.

He’s already won two domestic trophies during his short spell with PSG, but failed to claim the Ligue 1 title last weekend, and is reportedly open to the idea of returning to England.

Pochettino still has one year remaining on his contract in the French capital, but The Athletic believe that he’s unhappy and frustrated in Paris, with both sides willing to get the deal done.

Despite those claims, the report says that Ajax manager Erik ten Hag remains the leading candidate, with the Pochettino deal expected to be ‘difficult’ to complete.

Following a wretched two seasons under Mourinho, if Levy can pull this off, it would be a sensational start to a mammoth summer at Tottenham.



  1. So when poch was sacked we were 14th or 15th in the league, had not won an away game in nearly a year and the players that are mostly all still there had lost heart. To bring back a manager who went to the strongest team in France and couldn’t win the league with that team in a one horse league says a lot. It is a mistake to go back. A report I read said sissoko, winks and alli were all happy with the idea of him coming back. Really sissoko – finished, winks – not good enough, alli – he was not playing a lot when poch left he didn’t trust him any more than Jose did. This is a move done to appease fans with profit and not silverware at its base. Profits before silverware is what enic and the board are about at spurs. A backward move doomed to failure with no ambition thats spurs at the moment. Appoint conte on a two year contract with a option to walk away at that point or another two years. A winner like conte is what spurs need but then when was the last time spurs won anything oh yes the crap Cup in 08 big deal.
