Tottenham Hotspur are thought to be considering a move to bring Mauricio Pochettino back to the club this summer.
According to the Sun, the 49-year-old Argentine manager is now considering a return to a London club because he is unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain and wants a second chance at Tottenham.
Star striker Harry Kane has been linked with a move away from Spurs this summer, and Pochettino’s return could play a key role in securing the 27-year-old’s future.
Pochettino was integral to the England international’s development and may convince the striker to stay at the London club.
His return could also play a big role in Dele Alli’s future. The midfielder has struggled to hit top form since Pochettino left Spurs, and he could unlock his potential once again.
Tottenham played some of their best football under Pochettino, with the Argentine manager guiding them to the final of the Champions League in 2019.
The Londoners sacked Jose Mourinho earlier in the season, and former midfielder Ryan Mason is currently the interim boss.
Spurs have been linked with Julian Nagelsmann, Maurizio Sarri, Antonio Conte, Eric ten Hag and Gennaro Gattuso in recent months, but none of those appointments are likely to happen.
Pochettino was admired during his time at the London club, and his return would certainly be welcomed by the fanbase. Here is how fans reacted to the news.
Get him back – Levy admit he was wrong not to back him in market and give him same backing he gave Jose. Not the worst idea when you strip it back!

I think most of us would want him back. But we need to offload the deadwood that stopped playing for him before. And he'd need to be backed by Levy.

The connection Poch had with spurs fans was incredible which might be what we need now. Can't speak on his behalf but I feel that's what he misses in Paris too

Can not for one minute imagine this would ever happen!! But if it did it would be the best thing that could happen at Tottenham right now !! But like I’ve said Dreams and gossiping getting mixed up with reality COYS

Even if it were true(which i doubt it is) personally think poch needs to get some serious silverware first in order to come back and have some credible authority over Levy

This is not happening. Why would he leave PSG, not even had a full season
