It has been reported that manager Mauricio Pochettino has accepted the Tottenham manager’s job.
Tottenham’s contract with manager Antonio Conte expires at the end of this season. There is an option clause for a one-year extension, but a breakup is likely. Amid strong criticism of coach Conte for his poor performance, coach Conte also made a statement saying, “The club may sack me.”
European football transfer market expert Fabricio Romano had the same opinion. Romano explained, “A renewal of the contract with manager Conte will be discussed after the end of this season, but for now, manager Conte is in the mood to leave the team.”
Pochettino is the most talked about successor to Conte. Pochettino managed Tottenham from 2014 to 2019. Tottenham reached its heyday under coach Pochettino and reached the final of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the 2018-19 season.
However, he was hardened due to poor performance the following season, and in January 2021, he was appointed as Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) coach. His appearance at PSG was unexpected. In his first season, he bowed his head, giving Lille a trophy. The following season they won the league title, but failed to reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Eventually, he left PSG at the end of last season. 메이저사이트
It is known that coach Pocecino also wants to return to Tottenham. The British ‘Football Insider’ said on the 15th (Korean time), “Coach Pochettino told Chairman Daniel Levy that he wants to be Tottenham’s next manager. Coach Pochettino will not want to miss the chance to recover Tottenham,” he predicted the next coach.
Pochettino also has a good relationship with Son Heung-min. Pochettino is the manager who signed Son Heung-min from Leverkusen to Tottenham. A reunion between Pochettino and Son Heung-min could happen next season.
