The Express have reported there is a belief that Mauricio Pochettino could still be tempted into a Tottenham return, despite currently managing at PSG.

The Argentine was sacked by Daniel Levy and co in November 2019, before being replaced by Jose Mourinho.

Since then, Tottenham have struggled under the Special One, sacked him, given Ryan Mason the interim job, hired Nuno Espirito Santo, and continue to struggle.

However, The Express claim that, just as Nuno is under pressure in North London after yet another 3-0 defeat to Man United, Pochettino is also ‘coming under fire’ at PSG.

Pochettino has admitted in the past that he would like to return to Tottenham one day in the future as he feels he has unfinished business at the club.

The former Spurs head coach was also linked with a return to North London in the summer, although he ended up remaining at the Parc des Princes.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I fully expect Pochettino to be back at Tottenham within the next two years. It looks as though his time will be limited at PSG and Levy definitely has one eye on his former friend, with Nuno just being a stop gap.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Daniel Levy is to blame for the current situation.
    We HAD one of our best manager’s ever, yet, he
    was disgracefully, unceremoniously sacked and
    Mourinho was his replacement.

    Mourinho is a spent force. He is a has-been.
    Pochettino was amazing! He had us playing
    amazing football. He took us to the final of the
    Champions League.

    He was NOT backed in terms of improving the
    team, until it was too late. Now, we have a
    situation where players who earn fortunes are
    NOT playing for the manager or the jersey.

    Nuno is out of his depth. Levy wouldn’t allow
    Kane to leave, so now Kane has an ongoing
    grievance against Levy and against the club.
    This has permeated the team as a whole and
    has become destructive.

    On paper at least, some of our players are
    potential world-beaters, yet they are showing
    complete indifference when they are on the
    pitch. We have a billion pound stadium with
    millionaire players, whom it seems, don’t
    want to be playing there.

    Look around you Tottenham players, there
    aren’t enough food-banks to cope with the
    demand out there. Zero-hour contracts are
    abound. Covid 19, 20 and 21 are still killing
    people. And YOU are taking money from the
    fans by deceit. They are booing you. When
    Pochettino was our coach, they were roaring
    with success.

    MY club has a wonderful history. If you can’t
    be part of that history and make your own,
    go somewhere else and ply your trade. WE
    don’t want you!

    Between Levy’s treatment of Pochettino, the
    parachuting in of Mourinho and playing hard-
    ball with Harry Kane, division has been sown
    and has grown weeds. Remove the weeds and
    stop Daniel Levy further denegrating our club.

    If I were Pochettino, I’d never return. Treatment
    meted out to him and his coaching team was
    appalling, having changed the football enormously.

    Nuno has to go. Harry Kane has to be allowed to
    leave and Daniel Levy has to stay out of chosing
    who runs the footballing side of the club.

    The other London clubs are all progressing. We are
    not. We are a laughing stock. Managing Tottenham
    Hotspur is seen as the poisoned-chalice. Potential
    coaches distanced themselves and fifth choice Nuno
    was gambled on. The gamble has not paid off.

    We settled for mediocracy. Ergo: we have become
    mediocre. Now we’ll settle for someone who is out
    of a job, whether they are going to properly invest
    their heart in what they do.

    We had the people who did that. We got rid. Now
    another period of throwing millions at people who
    already have millions. We can’t buy success. We
    have to create it. Players have to play for it. Many
    are NOT. Next please. Who will we settle for?

    Paratici has started well, with some of the
    new blood he has brought to the club. That
    said, it doesn’t matter how many millions
    are spent on new blood, if the blood coursing
    through their veins isn’t Tottenham inspired.

    It has been noticeable that other premiership
    clubs that have bought new players, seem to
    have them put their hearts and souls into
    playing for their new team and team mates.

    It has been noticeable that the same can’t be
    said of new players who’ve signed for Spurs.
    WHY? Something is fundamentally wrong!
    That and many other basics has to be looked at
    instead of knee-jerk reactions every time the
    wheels come off the stagecoach.

    If we can’t get Pochettino to return, chose an
    Emglish/British coach. Find someone who really
    wants the job and not the millions. PLEASE.
    Antonio Conte is NOT the right man. Howe is
    NOT the right man. Fonseca is NOT the right man.
