Mauricio Pochettino has openly said that he wants to return to Tottenham, according to the reliable Alasdair Gold from Football.London.
Pochettino was sacked by Spurs 18 months ago and then replaced by Jose Mourinho, but reports last week suggested that he was in talks with Tottenham about coming back to north London.
He signed an 18-month contract with PSG following his appointment back in January, but failed to win the Ligue 1 title last weekend after his side were pipped on the final-day by champions Lille.
But following their qualification for the Champions League, Pochettino activated an one year clause on his deal, but reports from France believe that PSG want to keep the former Spurs boss and are already planning for next season.
However, whilst Gold believes that a deal to bring Pochettino back to Tottenham remains complicated, he admitted that there’s a ‘real desire’ for the 49-year-old to return and ‘complete his unfinished business’ in N17.
Carlo Ancelotti’s reappointment at Real Madrid was a huge boost in Spurs’ pursuit of their ex-manager, whilst this is another in what has become a draining process of finding Mourinho’s replacement.
