Tottenham news: Antonio Conte and Eddie Howe joint favourites to replace Mauricio Pochettino next summer

December 20, 2018

Poch is Manchester United's no 1 target to replace Jose Mourinho on a long-term basis and Spurs will have to fight to keep hold of their in-demand boss.

As United continue to be linked with the Spurs boss, both Conte and Howe are topping the market to manage Spurs at 6/1 by the start of next term if Pochettino leaves.

Ole Gunnar Solsjaer is interim boss at Old Trafford until the end of the season, giving United time to plot a move for Pochettino.

Pochettino also refused to rule himself out of the running to be the next permanent United boss.

But despite this, Pochettino is still 2/1 to be in charge of Spurs on the opening day of next season.

Betfair: Tottenham manager at the start of next season

Mauricio Pochettino – 2/1

Eddie Howe – 6/1

Antonio Conte – 6/1

Mas Allegri – 10/1

Jose Mourinho – 14/1

Leonardo Jardim – 14/1

Diego Simeone – 16/1

Brendan Rodgers – 20/1

Roberto Martinez – 25/1

Arsene Wenger – 80/1

Thierry Henry – 100/1

Betfair's Katie Baylis said: “With Pochettino now the favourite to be United Manager next season, Spurs fans will not only be livid but also wondering if he goes, who would take over.

"We still have Poch as the 2/1 fav to be in charge on the first day of the 2019/20 season at 2/1, with Howe and Conte at 6/1.

"Mourinho is 14/1 in what would surely be one of the most bizarre job swap scenarios in football history.”
