As reported by The Sun, some of the key players at Tottenham Hotspur believe Mauricio Pochettino will leave the club next summer. There has been growing tension between the players and the coach following Spurs’ awful form away from home in this calendar year. And in the event of the Argentine’s potential departure from north London, the club will need to find a replacement.
In this article, we will discuss three coaches Spurs should target, if Pochettino leaves next summer.
Jose Mourinho is the most experienced as well as the most successful Premier League manager available at the moment. The Portuguese mastermind has won two Premier League titles with Chelsea while also winning the UEFA Europa League with Manchester United.
He is known for his defensive-oriented tactics that offer minimal space for the opposition. It also emphasises the importance of transition play as well as a defensive discipline that could be imperative for a Tottenham side that has lacked organisation this season.
But most importantly, it is Mourinho’s vast experience that could certainly be handy as Spurs look to recover themselves from their current mess.
Erik ten Haag
It was a surprise to see Erik ten Haag remain at Ajax despite a marvellous 2018/19 campaign that saw the Dutchman club win the Eredivisie title. He also reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League last season. The Amsterdam outfit’s fantastic run in the coveted competition was put to an end by none other than Tottenham.
Nonetheless, ten Haag has built an impressive reputation for his ability to transform young players into world-class individuals. He was, indeed, a key figure behind the monumental growth of Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt.
Ten Haag could replicate those achievements at Spurs. The North London giants have also given their young players the platform to perform under Pochettino’s stewardship. However, getting their hands on the Ajax boss might be a difficult job as Barcelona will likely to join the race if they sack Ernesto Valverde before the end of this campaign.
England national team manager Gareth Southgate is probably the best option available for Tottenham Hotspur in their bid to replace Pochettino.
The 49-year-old is well acquainted with some of Spurs’ key players including Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Eric Dier. Besides, he knows English football quite well and could help the Lilywhites continue on their path of promoting local players.
For instance, Southgate is the ideal manager to oversee the development of players like Harry Winks, Ryan Sessegnon and Jack Clarke. His managerial skills could also be beneficial for some of the more experienced players of the Spurs squad like Jan Vertonghen and Hugo Lloris.
