Cape Town - Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he retains an affection for former club Paris Saint-Germain.

The Argentine coach spent three seasons at Parc des Princes during his playing days in the early 2000s, and admits that he still loves the club after "nearly three years there".

"My team is PSG - I love PSG," he told SFR Sport. "I spent some time, six months, with Bordeaux too, but I was captain at PSG and that will always be special for me."

The former centre-back also enjoyed two good spells in La Liga with Espanyol, whom he later managed, after to moving to Europe from boyhood club Newell’s Old Boys in 1994.

PSG recently replaced Laurent Blanc with Unai Emery, but the former Valencia and Sevilla coach has seen their domestic supremacy waver since taking over, and failure in the Champions League will open a vacancy in Paris.

With that in mind, Spurs won’t be happy that their much-liked manager seems eager to return to France at the helm of his former club.
