Opinion: Appointment of 'best manager in the world' won't help change Tottenham's fortunes due to lack of quality in the squad
The season has just ended, however, the crazy rumours have already started with regards to Tottenham Hotspur’s search for a new manager.
Recent reports suggested that the club had identified the top candidate for their vacant manager’s role and hope to appoint the individual in seven to 10 days.
However, reports yesterday seem to contradict the claims by football.london, after it emerged sources high up at Spurs, believe it’s worth returning to the Argentine manager, who has been labelled the ‘best manager in the world’.
It is thought the former Spurs boss could be open to returning to north London after finding the Paris Saint Germain role a bigger headache than initially thought.
The former Southampton man was sacked by Daniel Levy back in November of 2019 after a poor run of results and was replaced by Jose Mourinho.
However, that appointment failed drastically with the Portuguese coach getting sacked himself just days before the Carabao Cup final.
TBR View: Pochettino’s appointment won’t help solve Spurs’ biggest problem
Whilst hiring the former 49-year-old seems likes the ultimate fantasy, it wouldn’t solve the crisis that is unfolding in north London.
The squad is underwhelming which has caused season after season of poor displays since the Champions League final defeat against Liverpool. Hiring Pochettino would simply mask the lack of quality within the squad.
Gareth Bale is unlikely to re-sign given the club’s lack of Europa League and Champions League football, which would be a devastating loss given his end of campaign form.
Harry Kane has stated his intention through direct and indirect means in recent weeks. First through talks with the club and secondly, through his interview with Gary Neville, where he claimed he’d make his decision on his future as opposed to the CEO.
The lack of clarity and underwhelming quality within the squad won’t be covered by the hiring of a quality manager like Pochettino. He possesses the quality, however, is likely to struggle if given the same squad as when he left the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
