Darren Bent thinks Tottenham reportedly could appoint manager much better than Mauricio Pochettino

Darren Bent says Thomas Tuchel is a far better manager than Mauricio Pochettino amid reports the German is interested in the Tottenham job.

Tuchel would be interested in the Spurs job if the club decided to approach him in the coming months, according to a report from Evening Standard.

Antonio Conte has not committed his future to the club and that has created uncertainty over whether he will remain in the job beyond the end of the season.

On TalkSPORT, Bent said that he believes Pochettino will come back to Spurs one day but that Tuchel would be a better choice.

Bent says Tuchel is a better manager than Pochettino

When a caller discussed the prospect of Pochettino coming back, Bent said: “I’m not sure (Poch back to Spurs) would be a step forward.

“I think they will be (reunited at some point). Tuchel is in a different bracket. Even Conte, if you look at his body of work should be in a different bracket.

“Listen, the relationship between Poch and Tottenham is… what he did for that football club is outstanding. But if you’re asking me Tuchel or Pochettino? It’s not even close.”

Elsewhere, Bent said that he does not think Tuchel would actually go to Spurs, despite the likelihood being that any report comes from Tuchel making it known he would be interested if the job was vacant.

It has also been reported within recent months that Tuchel would be interested in the England job, although Gareth Southgate has now decided to stay on until the end of Euro 2024.

Spurs have already hired three former Chelsea managers under Daniel Levy; Conte, Jose Mourinho and Andre Villas-Boas.
