Graham Roberts has revealed that he has been told that winning the Champions League was one of Mauricio Pochettino’s directives when he was appointed as Paris Saint-Germain head coach and that the Argentine could now come under pressure.
Tottenham’s fortunes have gone downhill since the club decided to sack Pochettino and his coaching staff back in November of 2019.
The Jose Mourinho experiment backfired and the club now finds itself at crossheads ahead of what is set to be a crucial summer transfer window.
Several coaches have been linked with the Tottenham hot seat over the last few months but reports indicate that the club are not close to confirming their next manager and will only do so at the end of the season.
Roberts believes Spurs might have a chance of bringing Pochettino back to the club this summer as the former Tottenham boss could end up losing his job.
He told Football Fancast: “I’ve been told that Pochettino had to win the Champions League this year and don’t forget that they could lose the league for the first time in years this season so they’re not going to be happy.
“If it was me, I would drive over to France and ask him to come back.”

One would think that Pochettino would at least be given a full season by PSG even if the club fail to win the title.
However, I do believe that one of the reasons Levy seems to be in no hurry to confirm an appointment, is due to the uncertainty surrounding the future of several coaches.
Conte’s future also looks unclear at the moment while it remains to be seen whether Rodgers will stick around at Leicester if the Foxes once again fail to qualify for the Champions League.
