Barry Fry believes that it would be a happier camp should Mauricio Pochettino return to Tottenham this summer.
The Argentine was sacked and replaced by Jose Mourinho back in November 2019 but is in talks over a sensational return to north London.
A deal to bring Pochettino back to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium appears a difficult one to get over the line, but it’s one that would get fans back on side following the poor form which led to Mourinho’s departure.
Spurs’ slide under Pochettino began prior to their Champions League final defeat to Liverpool two years ago, with the former Tottenham manager also frustrated about his lack of control over transfers despite bringing in Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele in his final window.
But with Tottenham sitting 14th and dumped out of the cup by League Two opposition, the fans favourite was sacked by Daniel Levy.
However, Spurs are working desperately hard to bring Pochettino back to replace the man that came in for him more than 18 months ago.
And following some tricky times under the Portuguese, Fry told Football FanCast the atmosphere would be different with Pochettino back in charge:
“The fans were very happy with Pochettino. He took them to a Champions League final and was unlucky to lose. I think the fans, I know a lot of Tottenham fans, they like Poch’s style.
“They didn’t like Jose’s, he fell out with too many of the players, Poch doesn’t do that, and I think it will be a happier camp if he comes back. I think it will take Daniel persuading at his best, but it will cost him a few quid.”
