Mauricio Pochettino will already have a number of potential managerial offers available to him following a difficult start to the new season, according to Danny Mills.

Spurs find themselves in ninth place in the Premier League table having only managed to win three of their opening nine top flight fixtures.

There has also been embarrassment in cup competitions with Bayern Munich handing down a 7-2 thrashing in the Champions League and a Carabao Cup exit by Colchester United of League Two.

The former Leeds United and Manchester City full-back believes that the Spurs boss will not be short of admirers when he decides that it is time to walk away from North London.

Pochettino stated before the 3-0 defeat to Brighton earlier this month that he is fully committed to Tottenham and could remain with the club for five more years (Sky Sports).

Mills told Football Insider: “I think Mauricio Pochettino has done such a good job at Tottenham that he will pick and choose when he wants to leave and where he wants to go. 

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s got several offers on the table. If he was to suddenly say: ‘Right, I’ve had enough, I want a new challenge, I want to move on,’ there would be several clubs around the world that would want to snap him up in an instant.

“You’re ambitious as a player, you’re ambitious as a manager and I’m sure he would love nothing more than to win something with Tottenham and really challenge for the Premier League on a regular basis, and trophies.

“Is that going to happen with the way things are going, the investment that’s happened over the last few years? Do we see that happening?

“Is he thinking: ‘I’ve done my best, I’ve not really been backed, I’ve punched above my weight, I’ve achieved far greater results than anyone ever expected,’? Of course he’s going to be looking round.”

Opinion

Mauricio Pochettino has performed wonders in his five years in charge at Spurs, transforming us from a Europa League side to Champions League regulars.

He is certainly the right man to guide us forward despite the poor start to the new season.

  1. Why do most of the pundits always want to break up Spurs – whether be players or now even manager. This sort of thing got MP flying high on his horses and he took his eyes off the ball with interests from RM and MU. He is at Spurs and is Spurs Manager. Just leave it be. He’s done a lot and a good job, and now it’s time to ensure Spurs stay there and aim higher…
