Tottenham Hotspur’s poor start to the season continued on Tuesday night when they were the victims of a Carabao Cup upset by League Two outfit Colchester United.

The defeat has seen pressure mount on Mauricio Pochettino with some fans questioning if he has taken the club as far as he can (The Express).

A report in the Daily Mail claims that Spurs legend Jurgen Klinsmann is keen on taking over the managerial reins at Tottenham should the club decide to part ways with Mauricio Pochettino.

The report claims that the Spurs job is of immense appeal to the German who has been out of a job since leaving the USA national team in 2016.

The 55-year-old, who won the hearts of the White Hart Lane faithful during his two spells in North London, has had relative success in management having been in charge of Bayern Munich as well as the German national team before taking over in the USA.

I firmly believe that Pochettino is not under the threat of being sacked anytime soon. Even if the club were to do the unthinkable and let the Argentine go, it is highly unlikely that they would go for Klinsmann considering his lack of experience in club football.

While his return would certainly make for a great story, in reality, his management credentials aren’t good enough for the German to be deserving of the Spurs job.
