Spurs players and staff have called for Mauricio Pochettino to return as manager following his lackluster results since replacing Nuno Espirito Santo last season. They now humbly ask for his help to lead again.
Conte has come under increasing criticism for his management of the team. After Tottenham lost to AC Milan in the Champions League, Conte finds himself in hot water with a possible move away from North London.
Mauricio Pochettino said that he dreams of returning to “Tottenham” one day. After leading them to the Champions League final last year, the club remains “deep” in his heart.
Pochettino has overseen several top-four finishes in the Premier League during his five years at the club, as well as reaching the Champions League final. Unfortunately, he was never able to deliver the silverware.
The former Espanyol boss has promoted several academy players to the first team, including James Ward-Prowse, Callum Chambers and Luke Shaw.
PSG have already been crowned Ligue 1 champions, but success in Europe is becoming increasingly important for the managers. Leonardo will soon step down as sporting director but Pochettino, whose future has been uncertain since the Champions League defeat by Real Madrid, remains part of PSG’s blueprint at the Parc des Princes.
He has now led Paris Saint-Germain to an unprecedented Ligue 1 title, but the club’s owners remain unhappy with their performance in Europe. They have reportedly held talks with Kylian Mbappe to convince him to stay at the club next season.
After an impressive debut season, Antonio Conte will leave Tottenham before his contract expires this summer. According to Mirror Football, Conte has become frustrated with the club’s lack of ambition in the transfer market, which has caused him to fall out with chairman Daniel Levy.
The former Juventus and Chelsea manager is yet to win a trophy during his short spell at White Hart Lane. Furthermore, their Champions League round of 16 exit to AC Milan has only compounded this lack of success for the London side.
It’s no secret that Conte has an intense competitive drive and craves tough challenges. This trait sets him apart from most managers because he thrives in this type of environment.
Levy has made no secret of his desire to bring in a coach who can build on Spurs’ success under Pochettino. But he knows it will be difficult for the club to attract top talent through the transfer market unless they make major moves this summer.
However, some believe the chairman is making decisions against Tottenham’s best interests. They claim he has focused too much on winning titles and not enough on players who fit his vision for the club.
One supporter was particularly concerned to hear that Levy was considering hiring Gattuso because of his views on women in football. They demanded that if the Italian was given the job, he would explain his beliefs to the fans.
It is an understandable concern. However, it is important to remember that Levy is motivated by his own ambitions, not the club’s.
The pressure is on
Tottenham players and staff are in constant contact with Mauricio Pochettino, asking him to return. They have been told that the decision to sack him was a “big mistake” by chairman Daniel Levy and that their change of manager was an error of judgement.
Spurs fans are left reeling after a disappointing 0-0 draw with AC Milan at Wembley on Wednesday night saw them lose both the FA Cup and the Champions League. Despite losing to Wolves on Saturday, Tottenham remain fourth in the Premier League, two games behind rivals Newcastle.
But that doesn’t guarantee them smooth sailing in Europe this week. Captain Hugo Lloris will miss the Champions League last 16 second leg against AC Milan after being sidelined for two months with an ankle injury, while Yves Bissuma and Rodrigo Bentancourt will both miss some time with ACL injuries.
