‘There isn’t anyone better, end in tears’ – Spurs fans split over Mauricio Pochettino return


Tottenham Hotspur could potentially soon be welcoming former boss Mauricio Pochettino back to the club.

The Argentine only left North London 18 months ago, receiving the sack from Daniel Levy and eventually being replaced by Jose Mourinho.

The latter did not last all too long at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium though and after a dreadful start to the 2020/21 campaign, was replaced by former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason on an interim basis.

In the time since, Pochettino has taken the reins at French giants Paris Saint-Germain, winning the first trophy of his managerial career in the form of the Coupe de France.

The 49-year-old is of course an extremely popular figure in North London.
