Former Manchester United and Chelsea coach, Jose Mourinho is tipped to replace Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino.
According to top Italian Newspaper Calciomercato, Mourinho is among the top candidates to replace Pochettino.
The newspaper reports that Tottenham has identified Mourinho along with former Juventus boss, Max Allegri as the top contenders to replace Pochettino, who is under pressure at the club following Spurs’ recent defeats to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and Brighton in the Premier League.
Mourinho’s last managerial job was with Manchester United where he was sacked in December.
The former Inter Milan and FC Porto coach were close to tears during an interview a few weeks ago as he admitted he missed football.
Mourinho said: “I miss my football, I have the fire. The most difficult thing for me is to say “no” to the possibilities I had to work.
“I have to be patient and wait for the right one and the right one is one at the dimension of what I am as a manager.”
