As the search for a new permanent manager goes on for Tottenham Hotspur, it is believed Mauricio Pochettino is not being actively considered by Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici.
Spurs are looking for a new manager once more after Antonio Conte parted ways with the club recently. His former assistant, Cristian Stellini, is currently in charge until the end of the season.
The likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Burnley boss Vincent Kompany, and Feyenoord’s Arne Slot have all been linked to the role of late (Daily Star).
One name that is continually touted, particularly among Spurs supporters, is former manager Pochettino. The Argentine was at the club from 2014 to 2019, and oversaw a fairly successful period for the Lilywhites.
He led Spurs to the Champions League final, helped to develop many of the best players at Spurs in recent years, and was a popular figure both in the dressing room and in the stands.
Pochettino was sacked in November 2019, before moving on to coach PSG.
Pochettino has been out of work since last summer and Tottenham supporters have been calling for him to be rehired (Football.London).
The Athletic claimed earlier this month that Pochettino was not in the running for the role and that the Spurs hierarchy had not made contact with the 51-year-old regarding a return to the club.
Now, The Athletic suggests Spurs chairman Levy, and controversial sporting director Paratici, have not looked at reappointing Pochettino.
The latest report reiterates that no contact has been made and claims Pochettino is not “under active consideration” in the search for a new manager.

I do wonder why Levy is apparently so reluctant to rehire Pochettino.
While I’m not against the idea, I do think we should look at other options.
But for Levy, appointing someone the majority of fans want would be a surefire way to ease some of the pressure he is facing.
