Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with former manager Mauricio Pochettino after the departure of Antonio Conte.
The 51-year-old has been linked with a return to the north London club, but Tottenham are not completely convinced that it would be the best decision for the club.
A report from Football Insider claims that the 51-year-old Argentine manager is very keen on a return to Tottenham and he is pushing her behind the scenes to get the job.
Apparently, Pochettino is using the help of the media as well. The Argentine manager reportedly had dinner with a high-profile broadcaster recently.
Pochettino did an exceptional job at Tottenham during his previous spell at the club. He helped them challenge for the league title and guided them to the final of the Champions League as well.
The Argentine manager worked on a shoestring budget and got Tottenham challenging with the big guns of Europe.
There is no doubt that the 51-year-old is a top-quality manager and he has a strong relationship with the Tottenham fans and their players as well. Bringing him back could prove to be a wise move.
Tottenham are reportedly looking to bring in a manager who is currently unemployed so that they do not have to pay a huge compensation. Pochettino certainly fits the bill and he knows the club well. He could make an immediate impact at the London club.
The 51-year-old played a key role in the development of Harry Kane and his appointment might give Tottenham a better chance of holding on to their star striker, who has been linked with a move away at the end of the season.
