Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham contact former manager over return


Tottenham have made contact with former manager Mauricio Pochettino about a return to the club. The 49-year-old Argentine, who was sacked by Spurs in November 2019 after five years in charge, took over at Paris St-Germain in January.

PSG failed to win the Ligue 1 title for only the second time in nine seasons and lost to Manchester City in the Champions League semi-finals. Tottenham sacked Jose Mourinho, Pochettino’s replacement, last month. Academy coach Ryan Mason was put in temporary charge until the end of the season. Under him, Spurs lost the Carabao Cup final to Manchester City and finished seventh in the Premier League season.

BBC Sport understands there has been no contact between Tottenham and PSG, who have held talks with Pochettino about their plans for next season. PSG won the French Cup in May but missed out on the Ligue 1 title to Lille. PSG club released an interview with Pochettino, who has one year left on his deal with them, on Thursday in which he talked about having “laid a good foundation”.

He said: “I’m happy with the way the players adapted to the changes. There are a lot of things that couldn’t be changed or couldn’t be developed because of lack of time.
