Mauricio Pochettino
Mauricio Pochettino was reportedly "disappointed" that Tottenham did not make contact with him about a possible return after Antonio Conte was sacked.
  • Pochettino expected call from Spurs
  • London side did not contact him about job
  • Argentine looks set to join Chelsea instead

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.

WHAT THEY SAID: Spurs' decision not to reach out to Pochettino upset the Argentine, according to Alan Brazil, who said on TalkSport: “I really like the guy. I think he’s a top top bloke. But one thing I do know is that he was so disappointed that Spurs didn’t even contact him."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Spurs could come to regret overlooking Pochettino as the ex-Paris Saint-Germain coach looks set to take over at Chelsea, after they sacked Graham Potter.
