The PSG coach is the subject of solicitations from his former club Tottenham. Discussions could start on Monday.
Although linked to PSG until June 2022, Mauricio Pochettino is not at all sure to stay with the capital team until that date. A return to England and more specifically to Tottenham would be highly likely concerning him.
Pochettino enjoyed great success in North London for five years, but was sacked in November 2019 when his side vegetated at 14th in the Premier League. A tumble that he could not slow down following the defeat in the C1 final of the same year. The Argentine technician is therefore strongly expected to take the reins of Spurs and the London club plan to start official negotiations on Monday, said The Sun.
Frictions between Leonardo and Pochettino
The 49-year-old technician has only been in Paris since January. He replaced Thomas Tuchel with the goal of making the team more competitive, but his record is so far mixed. He led PSG to French Super Cup and Coupe de France victories, but missed out on the Ligue 1 title and couldn’t do as well as his C1 predecessor.
It is rumored that ‘Poch’ would be disappointed with the way the French club are run. He would have already known a dispute with the sporting director Leonardo, and that is why he is open to a return to London.
