Tottenham Hotspur fans have been sent into an emotional meltdown on social media this week after former boss Mauricio Pochettino appeared on BT Sport.
The Argentine was sacked back in November less than six months after guiding the north Londoners to the Champions League final.
Pochettino claimed that he would love to come back one day and finish what he started by winning a title with the club he served for nearly six years.

Spurs have had a mighty fall from grace this season as they have crashed out of all cup competitions, including the UCL and also find themselves some seven points adrift of the top four in the Premier League, meaning Europe’s elite stage could be out of reach for the foreseeable future.
This week, the 48-year-old has been linked with the Newcastle United job despite Steve Bruce still being in charge. Sky Sports claim their new prospective owners see him as their number one target this summer.
Maybe Pochettino will be back in north London sooner than expected.
Here’s how fans have been reacting to his remarks…

Should never have been sacked.
Team was going through a transition and all that was needed was Levy to open the cheque book
