Tottenham legend Graham Roberts urges Mauricio Pochettino to return to the club
Taking to Twitter after Manchester City eliminated Paris Saint-Germain from the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, Tottenham Hotspur legend urged Mauricio Pochettino to leave the latter and return to the club.
Pochettino left Tottenham Hotspur in November 2019, bringing an end to a fruitful five-year run as manager of the club. While we did not win any trophies under the Argentine, it was during his tenure that we became a regular fixture in the UEFA Champions League and even pushed close for the Premier League title on an occasion or two, while he also led us to the Champions League final in 2018/19.
However, a poor start to the 2019/20 campaign saw Daniel Levy decide to axe the fan favourite, to appoint Jose Mourinho as his successor. The Portuguese, however, lasted just 17 months in the role before getting the sack himself last month.
Under Jose, despite there being major improvements in the games of Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, the team as a whole did not perform to expectations while the dour, pragmatic approach came to haunt us on several occasions.
Nevertheless, with Jose now gone, the search for a new manager is going on with intent. And, Roberts is quite clear who he wants to see back in the dugout at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The club legend tweeted after PSG’s disappointing defeat to Manchester City on Tuesday night, slamming the French champions for a lack of discipline, before urging Poch to come back home, where he is valued.
Watching PSG no discipline in the players Poch get out of there and come home your wasted there

Pochettino took over the reins at PSG earlier this year, following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel. The Argentine has already won a trophy with the Parisians and could still go on to lift the Ligue 1 title, although they are currently trailing Lille in the table.
