Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov believes that the club should stick with Mauricio Pochettino rather than appoint Jose Mourinho.
The Daily Mail reported that the former Manchester United and Chelsea manager is keeping an eye on the situation in North London.
Berbatov has backed Pochettino to continue to take the club forward despite the difficult start to the new season which has seen them humiliated by both Bayern Munich and Colchester United in cup competitions and are down in eleventh place in the Premier League table after eight matches.
The striker who played for Spurs between 2006 and 2008 before moving to Old Trafford has suggested that Pochettino’s squad needs a complete revamp.
The Bulgarian feels that Pochettino needs to take a leaf out of Sir Alex Ferguson’s book by moving on some of his players after a four-year cycle to keep the group competitive.
Tottenham will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Watford a week on Saturday.
Berbatov told Betfair: “Pochettinho is the guy that needs to stay there, he’s been there for a long time.
“There has been a lot of talk about Mourinho taking over at Spurs, I think he would have difficulty as well.
“Would he make Spurs better? I don’t know because it is the same team.
