“The best manager in the world” wants a Tottenham job, but not before the summer
Tottenham Hotspur could potentially swap one world-class manager for another.
It doesn’t look like Spurs boss Antonio Conte has much time left as manager of the club.
Last Saturday, his post-match comments took “brutally honest” to a new level following Tottenham’s draw with Southampton.
Now it’s certainly a matter of time before Spurs part ways with Conte.
The question is – who will replace him?
Mauricio Pochettino is one of the names making the rounds.
After all, he was one of the best managers Spurs have had in recent years and he is currently unemployed.
However, a report has just emerged claiming Pochettino has no desire to take the reins immediately.
The Guardian claim the Argentine would rather return to the Tottenham dugout at the end of the season.
This is also the case for Thomas Tuchel and Luis Enrique, the report added.
If the report is true, it would be a minor blow to Spurs.
However, one cannot blame Pochettino for wanting to keep the fire going until the summer.
He would know where Tottenham stand in relation to the European competition they will be in and also the budget.
The transfer window also opens, giving a new manager a chance to get started right away.
Pochettino is a top manager whom Andros Townsend called arguably the “best manager in the world” in 2021.
He would be a welcome appointment at Tottenham, the club where he cemented his credentials as an elite manager.
But Spurs may have to wait a while for that to happen.
