England captain Gareth Southgate is Mauricio Pochettino’s best choice if the Argentine coach leaves Tottenham.
The 2019/20 Premier League season is only in the inception phase, but there have been quite a lot of rumors regarding the future of coach Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentinian was under great pressure as Tottenham struggled from the start of the season.
Despite just winning 2-1 against Southampton, Tottenham is still 10 points behind leaders Liverpool after 7 rounds. In the League Cup, they were eliminated after an embarrassing defeat against fourth-ranked team Colchester United. And in the opening match of the group stage of the Champions League, “The Rooster” allowed Olympiakos to draw 2-2 despite leading 2 goals.
The Argentine strategist is leading Tottenham for the fifth consecutive season. He is said to still have a good relationship with President Daniel Levy. Pochettino’s ability to be fired mid-season is difficult. However, Tottenham continues to play badly, everything can happen.
Currently, Pochettino is sought by Man Utd and Real Madrid. There is even information that the Tottenham star is angry with the Argentine strategist when he leaves the club, thereby failing to focus on his work.
Tottenham has reason to target the talented coach who can shoulder the team in the long-term plan. And Gareth Southgate is Daniel Levy’s top choice right now. The reason for the “Spurs” leadership chose the “Three Lions” coach, because he has a good relationship and understands the capabilities of many “Rooster” pillars.
Under Southgate, many Tottenham players like Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Harry Winks, Daniel Rose and Eric Dier have all made great strides in their national colors. And the England squad to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup is a testament to that.
Attractive calling from a team of great caliber like Tottenham can completely cause the former Middlesbrough coach to leave his position at the national team to lead the club.
In addition, two famous names Jose Mourinho and Max Allegri are also strong candidates to sit in the hot seat in Tottenham if Pochettino leaves.
