Current Spurs boss Antonio Conte is believed to be on the edge of being sacked after his scathing rant following the team’s 3-3 draw against Southampton.

And according to Sky Sports, the club’s players have been in contact with Pochettino about a return to the club.

It is believed that the Argentine would take the job if he was offered a return to North London.

Pochettino is thought to have “remained on good terms” with chairman Daniel Levy.

The report also suggests that the manager has turned down roles in the last eight months.

The club’s fans have made their wishes known as they chanted the former manager’s name after Spurs were knocked out of the Champions League.

video posted on social media showed them singing: “He’s magic, you know, Mauricio Pochettino.”

The 51-year-old was sacked by Spurs in 2019 after a five-year spell at the club and replaced by Jose Mourinho.

Despite not winning a trophy for Spurs, he guided the club to four consecutive Champions League finishes in his previous spell in charge of the club.

Prior to his arrival, Spurs had finished in the top four in just two of their previous 22 seasons in the Premier League.

He also took the club to the Champions League final in 2019, but Liverpool prevailed as they won 2-0.

After replacing Tim Sherwood in 2014, Poch took charge of 293 games, winning 159, losing 72 and drawing on 62 occasions.

Spurs could make several changes to their team this summer if Pochettino returns.

Pochettino would likely want to sign players that would suit his 4-2-3-1 formation, which he used in his previous spell at the club.
