Ex-Man Utd and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho eyeing Spurs job to replace under-fire Mauricio Pochettino – The SunOctober 9, 2019
JOSE MOURINHO is keeping an eye on Mauricio Pochettino's future at Tottenham, it has been claimed.
Mourinho is currently waiting for the right opportunity to come up before he makes a return to football management.
And according to the Mail, the prospect of their being a potential vacancy at Spurs is one that has him showing an interest.
Pochettino's future at Tottenham has been in some doubt ever since he admitted at the end of last season that he may have quit if the club had won the Champions League.
And the Argentine's situation has not been helped by what he saw as major frustrations over the way the club dealt with their transfer business.
The disappointing start to the season has added further fuel to the belief that the 47-year-old could soon be looking for a way out of Tottenham.
And the Mail report that Spurs are a club who appeal to Mourinho as he ponders his next career move.
Since leaving Manchester United last December there have been no shortage of clubs making contact with him about becoming their manager.
But the 56-year-old has taken his time returning to the dugout to ensure he finds a challenge he believes is suitable.
Building on the impressive work Pochettino has done in North London is thought to be one such role which he may be interested in.
Ironically, taking over at Old Trafford should Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer ultimately pay for United's poor form with his job is a position that could tempt Pochettino into quitting.
Another club who could have an impact on the managerial situation of both men is Real Madrid.
Pochettino has long been of interest to the Spanish giants and it is believed he would be open to the prospect of taking charge if Zinedine Zidane pays for the club's poor form with his job.
But Mourinho, too, has one eye on events at the Bernabeu where his ongoing friendship with club president Florentino Perez makes him among the top choices to step in.Mauricio Pochettino insists he will not run away ‘like a kid’ despite bad losses against Bayern Munich and Brighton
