An insight into the stance of former Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino when it comes a potential return to the club has been provided on Thursday evening.
The name of Argentine tactician Pochettino, of course, has taken its place front and centre in the headlines in north London once more over the course of the last 24 hours.
This comes owing to the latest struggles of the current man in charge at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
After an altogether underwhelming goalless stalemate with Italian champions AC Milan on Wednesday, Spurs were sent packing from the Champions League, seeing their feint silverware hopes for the campaign brought to an end in the process.
Boss Antonio Conte, in turn, has come under mounting scrutiny.
In fact, as calls mount for the Italian tactician to be sent on his way, many of a Tottenham persuasion went as far as to make clear their hopes of a once-beloved figure on the touchline in north London making the move back to England’s capital on Wednesday night.
The man in question? The aforementioned Mauricio Pochettino.
And now, as alluded to above, a fresh insight has been provided into the 51-year-old’s stance on a Lilywhites reunion.
The info comes courtesy of the reliable Gary Jacob of The Times, who has confirmed that, under the right circumstances, Pochettino would indeed be open to replacing the under-fire Conte:
‘Pochettino has made it clear he is interested in returning to the club and would be welcomed back by most supporters.’
It now remains to be seen whether Daniel Levy and the powers that be at Tottenham share such an interest in reigning former flames.
