Some Spurs fans are horrified by prospect of 49-year-old replacing Pochettino

The Telegraph reported on Tuesday that Mauricio Pochettino’s time at Tottenham is edging to a close with the club’s hierarchy fearing that it might become impossible to salvage the season under the Argentine.

While it is said that Pochettino still has Levy’s backing, the Spurs chairman could start looking at alternative options in case the team’s form fails to improve in the coming weeks and months.

The report claims that Spurs could approach Max Allegri or Jose Mourinho if Pochettino is sacked during the season but that the club would prefer to wait until the end of the season as they have a better chance of attracting the likes of Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe, RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann, or even England manager Gareth Southgate.

Some Spurs fans were quite furious with the suggestion that Gareth Southgate could be the man to replace Pochettino, with Nagelsmann seemingly most fans’ first choice.

Others, however, urged the club to back Pochettino as they insisted he is the man to help us turn our form around.

Spurs Web Opinion

As things stand, I would still stick with Pochettino at least until the end of the season but if Spurs continue to falter in the next few games, then I believe the club seriously have to consider making a mid-season change. While the poor start to the season might not be all Poch’s fault, changing the manager is the only way to freshen things up the club quickly.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. This would be typical of Tottenham.
    Appoint another manager that has won nothing in the game like Howe or Southgate.
    The quicker Poch goes the better.
    He is a good trainer but a shit tactician.
    All have do is look at him team selection over the last 3 games
