Spurs players and staff have urged Mauricio Pochettino to return as manager after his lackluster results since replacing Nuno Espirito Santo last season. They now humbly ask for his help in getting back in charge.
Conte has come under increasing criticism for his management of the team. After Tottenham lost to AC Milan in the Champions League, Conte finds himself in hot water and could potentially be on his way out of north London.
Mauricio Pochettino has revealed he dreams of returning to Tottenham someday. After leading them to the Champions League final last year, the club remains “deep” in his heart.
Pochettino oversaw several top-four Premier League finishes during his five years at the club, as well as reaching the Champions League final. Unfortunately, he never managed to deliver silverware.
The former Espanyol boss promoted several academy players into the first team, including James Ward-Prowse, Callum Chambers and Luke Shaw.
PSG have already become Ligue 1 champions, but success in Europe is becoming increasingly important for managers. Leonardo will soon depart as sporting director, but Pochettino – whose future was uncertain after their defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League – remains part of PSG’s project at Parc des Princes.
He has now led Paris Saint-Germain to an unprecedented Ligue 1 title, but the club’s owners remain dissatisfied with their performance in Europe. They reportedly held talks with Kylian Mbappe to persuade him to stay at the club next season.
After an impressive debut season in charge, Antonio Conte appears increasingly likely to depart Tottenham before his contract expires this summer. According to Mirror Football, Conte has grown disillusioned with the club’s lack of ambition in the transfer market and this has caused him to have a falling-out with chairman Daniel Levy.
In his short tenure at White Hart Lane, the former Juventus and Chelsea coach has yet to win a trophy. Furthermore, their Champions League round of 16 exit to AC Milan has only compounded this lack of silverware for the London side.
It’s no secret that Conte has an intense competitive drive and craves difficult challenges. This trait sets him apart from most managers, as he thrives in such environments.
Levy has made no secret of his desire to bring in a manager who can build upon Spurs’ success under Pochettino. But he knows it will be difficult for the club to attract top talent through the transfer market if it doesn’t make major moves this summer.
However, some believe the chairman is making decisions against Tottenham’s best interests. They claim he has placed too much focus on winning trophies and not enough effort into investing in players who fit his vision for the club.
One supporter was particularly alarmed to hear Levy considering hiring Gattuso due to his views on women in football. They demanded that if the Italian were given the job, he should explain his beliefs to fans.
That is an understandable concern. However, it’s essential to remember that Levy is motivated by his own ambitions rather than those of the club.
The pressure is on
Tottenham players and staff have been in constant communication with Mauricio Pochettino, asking him to return. They have been told that the decision to sack him was a “great mistake” by chairman Daniel Levy and that their manager change was an error in judgement.
Spurs fans are reeling after Wednesday night’s lackluster 0-0 draw with AC Milan at Wembley, which eliminated them from both the FA Cup and Champions League. Despite falling to Wolves on Saturday, Tottenham remain fourth in Premier League with two games in hand over rivals Newcastle.
But that doesn’t guarantee them a smooth sailing in Europe this week. Captain Hugo Lloris will miss the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie against AC Milan after being sidelined for two months with an ankle injury, while Yves Bissouma and Rodrigo Bentancur are both set to miss some time due to ACL injuries.
