Tottenham manager news: Mauricio Pochettino claim emerges with Nuno under pressure

Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is now at PSG

Mauricio Pochettino could return to Tottenham Hotspur if they sack Nuno Espirito Santo due to doubts over whether the Argentine's playing style suits Paris Saint-Germain, according to Get French Football News journalist Adam White.

Why could Spurs be on the lookout for a new manager?

Spurs have suffering a wretched loss of form and their North London derby humbling at Arsenal was a third consecutive Premier League defeat.

The 3-1 reverse at the Emirates Stadium led to head coach Nuno, who was only appointed as Jose Mourinho's eventual successor in June, being installed as third favourite to become the first top flight managerial casualty of the season.

Although the former Wolverhampton Wanderers chief has been backed by Spurs legend Ossie Ardiles, the Sun has claimed Nuno is fighting for his job less than 100 days after heading to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Prior to Nuno's appointment, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy held discussions with PSG head coach Pochettino over the possibility of him making a sensational return to the club.

Pochettino was sacked by Spurs in November 2019, following a five-year stint at the helm.

What has Adam White said about Pochettino?

French football expert White believes, of all the managers currently in Ligue 1, Pochettino is most suited to Spurs if they decide to axe Nuno.

He also alleges that, despite the 2-0 Champions League win over Manchester City in midweek, Pochettino has failed to impress since taking charge of PSG in January. 

White told GIVEMESPORT: "I think the person that suits Spurs most in Ligue 1 is Pochettino because I don't know that he suits PSG.

"The performance against Manchester City was a little bit of a caveat to that and that was probably the best performance by some distance under him so far.

"But I think, over the course of 45 games that he has been in charge, they have struggled to break teams down that play against them.

"Manchester City was an exception earlier this week but they were completely played off the park by Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final last season.

"I think he definitely has something to prove that he's suited to manage this sort of side."

How did Pochettino's first spell at Spurs go?

Although he failed to lead Spurs to silverware during his reign, Pochettino guided the north Londoners to an impressive 160 wins from 293 matches in charge.

The 49-year-old also led the club to the first Champions League final in their history before they succumbed to domestic rivals Liverpool in 2019.

Pochettino has since gone on to win the French Super Cup and Coupe de France with PSG.
