Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to reveal that they want Mauricio Pochettino back at St Mary’s, following the news that Tottenham have sacked the Argentine.
Pochettino managed the Saints from 2013-2014 before being poached by the north Londoners – he accepted his first job in English football when taking the reins at Southampton.
Since the former Paris Saint-Germain player departed the south coast, Southampton have had five different managers in Ronald Koeman, Claude Puel, Manuel Pellegrino, Mark Hughes and Ralph Hasenhuttl, with the club enduring a steady decline with each appointment.
It goes without saying that the Southampton fans’ cries for Pochettino’s return are downright ridiculous.
The 47-year-old is one of Europe’s best coaches and is surely destined for a job at an elite club following his exit from Spurs – it is totally unrealistic to ask for a world-class manager to return to a relegation candidate.
Nevertheless, let’s take a look at what the Southampton fans on Twitter have been saying…
I reckon with the new sacking at Spurs, we may get Poch back in. He loved his time with us and it would be so good to have him back #saintsfc

Sacking Poch is madness. Would have him back at Saints in a heartbeat #Saintsfc
