Mauricio Pochettino’s fortunes at Tottenham have changed considerably in the past few months.
Until the start of the season, the only way many could imagine the Argentine leaving the club was if he were to depart North London for a club of Real Madrid’s stature.
However, since guiding the team to the final of the Champions League in June, things have now taken a dramatic turn for the worse with the team currently looking incapable of keeping a clean sheet or even winning a match away from home.
After conceding ten goals in their past two games against Bayern Munich and Brighton, the 47-year-old’s future at the club is starting to be questioned.
According to a report by Kieran Gill of the Daily Mail, former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe are among the candidates that Daniel Levy is considering as alternatives to Pochettino.
The report claims that while Mourinho is likely to be hesitant to work under the financial constraints that would be imposed on him at Spurs, with Howe expected not to see it as an issue if he was given the chance to take over in North London.
The Cherries manager was tipped to take over at Spurs when Pochettino was linked with a move away last season and the 41-year-old is said to be ready for a new challenge at a bigger club.

This talk of a Pochettino replacement is premature at the moment as I believe the Argentine’s job is still safe for the time being despite the recent results. However, Levy would likely already have contingency plans in place if Spurs aren’t able to turn their results around. Howe is certainly a great shout as the job he has done at Bournemouth has been nothing short of fantastic.
