Tottenham ‘will consider Mauricio Pochettino ahead of ex-Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel’ if Antonio Conte leaves

TOTTENHAM will prioritise former boss Mauricio Pochettino over Thomas Tuchel if manager Antonio Conte leaves, reports suggest.

Conte‘s deal with Spurs runs out in June and his future is uncertain as he has yet to show signs he will pen a new deal.

That is why the North Londoners are exploring potential replacements in case Conte decides to quit at the end of the season.

Thomas Tuchel poses as a potential candidate as he is still a free agent after being sacked by Chelsea in September.

According to CBS reporter Ben Jacobs, however, Tuchel doesn’t pose as a priority for the club’s hierarchy.

In fact, Tottenham will consider other candidates including Pochettino ahead of the German tactician if they need a new manager.

Jacobs tweeted: “Told Thomas Tuchel is not Tottenham’s priority if Antonio Conte departs.

“There will be other candidates, including Mauricio Pochettino, ahead of Tuchel for consideration should Conte exit.”

Pochettino, who is also a free agent after leaving Paris Saint-Germain last year, earned plenty of recognition during his five-year stint at Tottenham.

The Argentine head coach led Spurs to four top-four finishes in the Premier League.

The ex-PSG boss also took the North Londoners to the 2019 Champions League Final where they lost to Liverpool.

Pochettino was sacked just a few months after the final following a run of poor results.
