Some Spurs fans on social media have been left surprised by Mauricio Pochettino being linked with the Benfica job this week.

The former Tottenham Hotspur boss has been without work since parting ways with the North Londoners during November of last year.

The Argentine has been linked with the Newcastle job in recent weeks with the former Spurs boss said to be the club’s prospective new owners’ first choice to replace Steve Bruce at the helm (Sky Sports).

However, reports linking him with the Magpies have died down in recent weeks.

Portuguese publication Record have now claimed that Benfica are targeting an ambitious move for the former Spurs and Southampton manager.

The Portuguese giants, who currently sit just three points behind league leaders Porto, are said to be ready to part company with current boss Bruno Lage, and spend big to get Pochettino in.

Some Spurs fans were surprised to hear that the 48-year-old was in talks with Benfica as they felt the job was not a big enough one for someone of Pochettino’s calibre.




Spurs Web Opinion

Pochettino has made it pretty clear that he is willing to talk to any club to see how interesting their project is. Just because he is ‘in talks’ does not necessarily mean he wants the job. In fact, I am not convinced that Pochettino has said yes to Newcastle either. There could potentially be vacancies at the likes of Barcelona and PSG if he is willing to be a little more patient.
