WHAT HAPPENED? Pochettino has been linked with a return to Tottenham several times since his departure in 2019. He was touted as a candidate to take over when Antonio Conte departed at the end of March, but Cristian Stellini was appointed interim boss instead. Stellini was then sacked after they lost 6-1 to Newcastle and the job was given to Ryan Mason instead.
