Former Chelsea and Republic of Ireland striker Tony Cascarino believes that Mauricio Pochettino must lower his sights ahead of his next managerial post.

The Argentine was sacked as head coach of Tottenham Hotspur by Daniel Levy in November of last year following five and a half years in charge and has been out of work ever since (BBC).

The 48-year-old had recently been linked with the Barcelona job after Quique Setien was sacked, only for the role to be handed to former player Ronald Koeman (Evening Standard).

Cascarino praised the work which Pochettino did at Spurs to turn them into Champions League regulars while also developing some of the younger players but does not believe his previous work warrants himself walking into a job of a club of Juventus’ stature.

Instead, the 57-year-old feels that Pochettino must take another role which is unlikely to be at a club as big as Tottenham and must instead pick a club in between the size of the North Londoners and Southampton.
