Some Tottenham Hotspur fans react as Paris Saint-Germain block Mauricio Pochettino return
Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting on social media, after Guillem Balague told BBC Sport that Paris Saint-Germain have no intention of letting Mauricio Pochettino leave.
Pochettino had entered into talks with Spurs over a potential return to north London on Thursday (The Athletic). Chairman Daniel Levy wants the Argentine back at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after deeming his sacking to be the worst mistake of his career.
Pochettino would be interested in returning to Tottenham just 18 months after being fired. He has struggled to settle to life in Paris but has one year remaining on his contract in France.
It was expected that Pochettino would have to resign to force his way out of PSG. But the Ligue 1 side may not accept the 49-year-old’s resignation.
Balague has stated that PSG have no interest in letting Pochettino leave to re-join Tottenham and are planning for a future with the Argentine in charge.
“Returning to England is a goal, but he’s started planning next season with PSG decision-makers,” he said. “PSG have got no intention to let him go and are surprised by the amount of coverage about something they are not contemplating.
“They don’t blame him for not winning the league and have seen big improvements in the squad. They do not expect anything but him starting next season on their bench.”
