“Don’t see it”: Jason Cundy has reacted as Tottenham are linked with manager
Jason Cundy has admitted he’s a “fan” of Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino, but says he can’t picture him returning to take charge at Tottenham like reports suggest.
Pochettino, 49, is being linked with the vacant Spurs job, as they look to find a full-time successor to Jose Mourinho.
Pochettino was sacked by Spurs back in November 2019 after his time with the north London club came to a disappointing end.
However, he’s a massive favourite with supporters for the way he had the team competing for trophies for several years under his tenure, albeit they just fell short in the end.
The Argentine manager took charge at Paris Saint-Germain in January this year, and it’s been a challenging start where he’s missed out on the league title and suffered defeat in the Champions League semi finals against Manchester City.
According to the Sun, Spurs could make a move to try bring Pochettino back with the club’s chairman Daniel Levy considering an approach.
It is stated that the 49-year-old would love a second shot in charge at Spurs.
However, it’s worth noting that he’s still the PSG manager.
Cundy has reacted to the speculation by being pessimistic that a deal will take place this summer. As well as that, he disagrees with the claim that Levy could want Pochettino back.
“I don’t see Pochettino going back to Spurs. I just don’t see it,” Cundy told talkSPORT.
“Look I’m a fan of Pochettino, but what’s changed at Spurs? What’s he going back to that’s any different to when he left? I don’t see Pochettino going back. I don’t see Levy wanting Pochettino back.
If Pochettino does return, then surely he’ll get a great reception from Spurs fans.
It would be great to see him back in the Premier League with a club he knows inside out, but at the same time he’s under the spotlight right now at PSG after falling short this season.
Levy does need to make up his mind quickly as more time passes since Mourinho departed in April.
Spurs supporters are growing increasingly impatient when it comes to the managerial appointment, and fears that the delay could impact the start of next season are justified.
