PSG boss, Mauricio Pochettino could make a stunning return to Tottenham, according to a new report.
The Argentine was sacked by Spurs in November 2019 after the team’s dramatic decline following their Champions League final defeat by Liverpool, with chairman Daniel Levy forced to swing the axe after a string of miserable results.
Jose Mourinho replaced him but failed to deliver on the promise of silverware as players and fans quickly grew tired of his negative approach – with Spurs slipping away from the top four and failing to qualify for European football.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is considering trying to persuade their ex-boss to leave Paris Saint-Germain and he has revealed to his close associates that sacking Pochettino is the greatest mistake he’s made in his career.
Reports by SunSport say that Pochettino is seriously considering a switch back to the club as he is unhappy in Paris and would love a second chance at White Hart Lane.
Pochettino, who failed to land the Ligue 1 title for PSG and lost in the Champions League semi-finals to Manchester City, is struggling at PSG where he starred as a player.
The former Southampton boss feels he has unfinished business at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and a return would be incredibly popular among the fans.
At Spurs, he transformed an underachieving side into title contenders and regulars in the top four, forging a close relationship with supporters.
He has already told close friends he would be prepared to rejoin Spurs, the report continues, with Levy now looking to find a way to bring him back.
Levy – who built up a close relationship with the 49-year-old during their five-and-a-half years together in N17 – has secretly admitted that sacking Pochettino was ‘the worst mistake of his career’, the Sun claims.
The move could be Tottenham’s ‘ace card’ to keep Harry Kane it says, with the striker already informing the club of his desire to be sold this summer. Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are believed to be among the interested parties for the £150million-rated star.
Since Mourinho’s sacking, Ryan Mason has taken charge on an interim basis – overseeing four wins and three defeats during his stint in charge, including a Carabao Cup final loss to Manchester City.
The team finished seventh under his leadership – meaning they will play in the UEFA Conference League next season.
