Tottenham Hotspur parted company with manager Mauricio Pochettino a little over two weeks ago following a disappointing start to the new season.

Heading into the recent international break, Spurs found themselves in the unfamiliar position of fourteenth in the Premier League whilst also suffering embarrassment in cup competitions at the hands of Bayern Munich and Colchester United.

Pochettino admitted earlier this week that he is ready to get straight back to work after spending some time in his native Argentina (Fox Sports Argentina).

Bayern Munich parted company with boss Niko Kovac early last month just a month after he had guided the German giants to a 7-2 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

German news outlet Bild have claimed that Pochettino is not in the running to succeed Kovac and are instead focusing their efforts on appointing PSG’s Thomas Tuchel.

In his five and a half years in North London, Pochettino guided Spurs to four successive top four finishes before being replaced by Jose Mourinho.

It was also reported earlier that Pochettino snubbed an approach from Everton to become their new manager (The Athletic).
