Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino continues to be linked with a move to Juventus, per The Independent.
The Argentine has guided the club to a top-four finish in the Premier League and to the Champions League final, where they will play Liverpool in Madrid on June 1.
Pochettino has suggested that he could leave the club if they win the showpiece, but The Independent report that Juve feel that they may have more success in appointing either Maurizio Sarri or Simone Inzaghi.
Should Pochettino make the move, though, and bring to an end a five-year spell in north London?
Football FanCast’s writers give their verdicts below!
“Mauricio Pochettino is far from done at Tottenham Hotspur. Yes, the Argentine has been able to revolutionise the way Spurs play and make them occasional title contenders and a safe bet for the top four every season. However, Pochettino is yet to deliver a single trophy in north London. Even if he manages to beat Liverpool in the Champions League final, the 47-year-old leaving for Juventus this summer would feel like a huge anti-climax for all. It’s simple, he shouldn’t do it.”
“There is absolutely no way Pochettino should leave Tottenham this summer, whether it’s to Juventus or elsewhere. It would be one of Levy’s biggest mistakes if he fails to convince him to stay, but I just can’t see him refusing to meet whatever demands the Argentine may have. He has built something unique in north London and, regardless of what happens in Madrid, there is plenty of unfinished business for him to take care of.”
“If Mauricio Pochettino had any sense, he would stay at Tottenham. The north London-based club are on the up and the project which he put the foundations in place for is finally starting to flourish. A shiny new stadium, some genuinely world-class players and an enhanced Champions League status should be enough to keep the Argentine; he would be a fool to leave all that behind for Juventus.”
