Cape Town - Tottenham have reportedly contacted former
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho to replace Mauricio Pochettino if he
leaves the club.
The Portuguese coach was sacked at Manchester United last
December after high-profile clashes with star players Paul Pogba and Anthony
Martial, while there was apparent discontent over the club's failure to sign a
defender in the summer.
Meanwhile, Pochettino has done brilliantly to build Spurs
into a side consistently challenging for the top four places in the Premier
League, while he got them to the Champions League final last term.
However, Tottenham have struggled this season with injuries
and rumours of unhappy players in the squad, with speculation over the summer
that several key stars could leave.
And now there has been some speculation that he could leave
Spurs, although Tim Sherwood says Daniel Levy would never sack Pochettino.
The Daily Mail recently claimed that Tottenham 'are among
the clubs that appeal' to Mourinho, with Real Madrid another job that the
Portuguese manager would be interested in.
And Soccerlink now report that Spurs are 'looking for a
possible successor' to Pochettino although his job is 'not threatened' just
The report in France adds that Mourinho 'has been contacted
by the London staff who hold him in high esteem'.
