Tottenham given fresh Mauricio Pochettino hope after France UEFA Euro 2020 exit
Tottenham’s search for a new manager is still continuing two months after Jose Mourinho was sacked. Among a myriad of targets for the vacant position, a return for Pochettino, who left the club in November 2019, was also considered.
However, those speculations were quashed quickly by PSG, who triggered a one-year contract extension for the Argentine, who had taken the job at the club in January earlier this year. (h/t The Sun)
However, Tottenham may have been given a slight hope of landing the 49-year-old because of France’s exit from the UEFA Euro 2020. The world champions were eliminated from the European championship on Monday night by Switzerland on penalty shootout after a pulsating 3-3 draw.
With Les Bleus now crashing out, PSG might be tempted to offer the club’s managerial job to their head coach Didier Deschamps, the report claims. The France boss is on the wishlist of the Parisian outfit and this provides them with a chance to move for him, which could open up the door for Tottenham to swoop for Pochettino. (h/t The Sun)

While a return for Poch would certainly be of appeal, it all seems to be a bit far-reaching at the moment. Furthermore, another report from ESPN has claimed that Deschamps is likely to continue as the France manager despite the shock exit. So, Nuno Espirito Santo continues to remain in the frame for the job.
