Manager Hitchen wants Levy to appoint as Spurs boss reportedly asks to leave club – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino has asked to leave Parc des Princes, according to Goal. Tottenham Hotspur want to bring back the Argentine just 18 months after showing him the exit door, and they have already started talks over a return. However, they are not the only ones keen on Pochettino, with Real Madrid also looking to snap him up. The Spanish giants are without a manager after Zinedine Zidane walked away last week, and they believe the PSG boss could be the perfect man to succeed the Frenchman.
Spurs technical performance director Steve Hitchen wants chairman Daniel Levy to go for Pochettino’s signature, with the players also said to be excited with the prospect of having him back. It remains to be seen whether PSG would grant the request of the 49-year-old, but Goal claim he will respect their decision should they refuse. A return to Tottenham is said to be tempting as they could offer him the stability of a long-term contract and give him full decision-making powers. He has always eyed a return to N17 since leaving in November 2019, but not many anticipated he would be open to the idea this soon.
