Former Tottenham Hotspur ace Paul Stewart believes that Mauricio Pochettino is still in love with the club amid links with a sensational return.
Spurs are in the market for a new manager as they look to replace the sacked Jose Mourinho, who left the club before the Carabao Cup final.
Ryan Mason was placed in interim charge but his reign is now over and links with Pochettino have only intensified.
The Athletic have reported that chairman Daniel Levy has opened talks with the PSG manager over a return to the club he was sacked by 18 months ago.
Pochettino is said to be open to the prospect of a return to the club, despite only joining PSG six months ago.
Goal reported on Sunday that Pochettino has asked PSG to allow him to leave the club, with Real Madrid also interested in appointing him as their new manager after Zinedine Zidane left the club.
Stewart believes that the Argentine still holds a real affection for Spurs, and believes that could well play into any decision he has to make in the coming days.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “We know that he loves Tottenham, we know that for a fact, and he’s openly admitted that in the media.”
