Tottenham fans on Twitter desperate for Pochettino return

Tottenham fans have got some fantastic memories of Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine did an incredible job for the Lilywhites over the course of five and a half years.

His time in North London saw the Lilywhites go from hopeful Europa League qualifiers to a Champions League mainstay.

Despite not winning any silverware for the club, he got as close as physically possible without getting over the line.

Pochettino took Spurs to a League Cup final, two FA Cup semi-finals, two 3rd placed finishes, a 2nd placed finish and a Champions League final.

This is certainly not to be sniffed at.

However, since Daniel Levy took the decision to sack Pochettino the Lilywhites have fallen dramatically.

The Jose Mourinho experiment exploded in Levy’s face and now Nuno Espirito Santo is picking up the scraps.

However, Pochettino has gone on to manage PSG.

Things aren’t all smooth sailing in Paris for the ex-Tottenham man.

Despite having Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to play with, PSG aren’t hitting the expected heights.

His high-pressing system at Tottenham just hasn’t translated to the Parc de Princes.

Most recently, in the first outing of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe as a front three starting together, PSG drew to Club Brugge.

That’s just not good enough for a club that possesses the talent that PSG do.

The hierarchy in Paris won’t settle for anything less than the best from Pochettino’s PSG.

That’s where many Tottenham fans are now finding their interest piqued.

The Lilywhites are all desperate for a Pochettino return one day.

When hunting for a manager over the summer it was reported that Levy had contacted Pochettino over a return (BBC).

In the end, he couldn’t split from his contract in Paris and Tottenham appointed Nuno.

That hasn’t stopped the fans from dreaming, though.

Pochettino delivered the fans some of their greatest moments in recent history.

Beating Ajax in Amsterdam will be a night that the fans will never forget.

That Champions League semi-final may have been where things peaked for Spurs, but nonetheless it’s a memory the fans will treasure.

However, a return to North London for the PSG manager would give him a chance to finish the job.

A triumphant Pochettino return one day would fill the supporters with joy.

Nuno deserves his chance at Spurs, granted.

If he can build Spurs back up to a side fighting for silverware like they were under Pochettino then the fans will certainly warm to him.

But there’s nothing like a sensational homecoming in football.

Should Pochettino return to Tottenham and do the one thing he couldn’t in his first spell – win a trophy – it would mean everything to the fans.

Obviously a lot has to happen for it to fall into place.

However, if the opportunity ever arises to bring Pochettino back to N17, Levy simply has to pounce on it.

It would be an incredibly popular move, with the fans even calling for it to happen just four league games into Nuno’s tenure.
