Tottenham fans go crazy on Twitter after reports about surprise Pochettino replacement

Claudio Ranieri

Every transfer season brings with it a set of bizarre rumours but this time, we have quite a shocking story at hand, even before the commencement of the summer transfer window.

As per a report from French publication Presse Ocean (h/t Leicester Mercury), Claudio Ranieri is in talks with Tottenham Hotspur regarding a potential move.

Ranieri led Leicester City to their fairytale win in the Premier League back in 2016 but given Mauricio Pochettino’s unparalleled influence and impact at Tottenham over the last few years, it seems highly unlikely for the club to replace him with the current Nantes manager.

There has been a lot of debate about Tottenham’s lack of silverware this season. Despite being one of the most consistent teams in the English top-flight, Spurs find themselves with an empty trophy cabinet. Although Ranieri is without a win in Nantes’ last 7 games, one cannot deny his skills and managerial credentials.

That said, Pochettino is integral to Tottenham’s success and if anybody can guide us to trophies, it is him. Our fellow supporters on Twitter had similar thoughts more or less. Here are some of the best reactions:
