Tottenham Hotspur parted company with Mauricio Pochettino last month after five and a half years in charge.

Pochettino led Spurs to top-four finishes in four of his five seasons in charge, as well as their first Champions League final in the 2018/19 campaign.

After a poor start to the current campaign, Spurs found themselves in the unfamiliar position of fourteenth in the Premier League table heading into the recent international break whilst also suffering humiliation in cup competitions at the hands of Bayern Munich and Colchester United.

Daniel Levy moved quickly and less than twelve hours later he was replaced by Jose Mourinho.

Pochettino has returned to his native Argentina following his dismissal from North London and has already met up with his former team-mate Diego Maradona, who is in charge of Superliga side Gimnasia (Daily Mail).

Maradona has urged Boca Juniors to appoint Pochettino as their new manager after ruling himself out of the position.

Speaking to Ole, he said: “I will not go to Boca because I repeat that I do not agree with those who will manage the club.

“The president [Jorge Amor Ameal] was already there and it was a disaster.

“He surrounded himself with [vice-president Mario Pergolini] who believes that he can handle the club.
