Mauricio Pochettino return to Tottenham Hotspur?
The British ‘Football Insider’ reported on the 29th (Korean time), “If Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte leaves, Pochettino could make a surprise return.”
Tottenham has completely changed since Conte took over. The squad was strengthened by requesting active support from the board, and the team was strengthened by adding coach Conte’s soccer philosophy. Under Conte’s leadership, Tottenham finished fourth in the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2021-22 season, enabling them to advance to the European Football Federation (UFEA) Champions League (UCL) this season.
But this season is sluggish. Despite signing high-quality players such as Richarlison and Yves Bisuma, they are not producing results. After the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, it began to lose points to mid-table teams and suffered a crushing defeat to rival teams that had to compete at the top. 메이저놀이터
Despite the crisis facing Tottenham, it is quiet whether Conte will renew his contract. With Conte still under contract to leave Tottenham at the end of this season, chances are only growing that he will leave the team.
Naturally, a successor began to be mentioned. Local media thinks that manager Pochettino, who directed Tottenham in the past, will lead Tottenham. It is the position that manager Pochettino returns to Tottenham and can rebuild if the board comes out like the current manager Conte is receiving support.
Paul Robinson of ‘Football Insider’ had the same opinion. “Usually, Pochettino says he can never go back, but I think he has unfinished business at Tottenham. It really is. He didn’t get support when he should have. “There was no huge investment in the summer transfer window. They went backwards after that season. It took them a long time to get back into the Champions League. Conte has done it.”
He added, “If Conte leaves, we can appoint manager Pochettino. There is unfinished business at Tottenham. He won trophies with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and is a proven manager at the highest level.”
