Pochettino on whether he would want to return to Tottenham one day

It has been almost exactly one month since Tottenham Hotspur decided to sack their long-term manager, Mauricio Pochettino, after more than five years in charge of the club.

When Poch took over, Spurs were down in the Europa League and not challenging for much in terms of major silverware.

However, when he left, Tottenham had been in multiple serious Premier League title races, four consecutive Champions League campaigns, and even a Champions League Final.

Unfortunately, despite making two finals during his Spurs career, Pochettino was unable to lift a trophy with the club before being replaced by Jose Mourinho.

Football is a very unpredictable sport, and Mourinho is a living example that managers can return to old clubs for a second stint, as he did at Chelsea.

When asked if he would return to Tottenham, Pochettino also pointed towards Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid as an example that anything can happen.

All in all, he sounded open to the idea (Mirror): “I don’t know because in football look at what happened with Zidane at Real Madrid, there’s plenty of examples and the most important thing is when you finish the relationships remain in a very good way and my love for Tottenham goes on.

“You feel that always from the fans, you feel the love and in football you never know. The same coaches or managers one day leave and then go back, different presidents, different times.

“Now it’s not in my hands, it’s in another person’s hands, we need to move on and of course you have different motivations and challenges in our life and we have to make sure we have the right energy to attack the new challenge and try to achieve all the new things that people expect from you.”
