MAURICIO POCHETTINO could make a stunning return to Tottenham.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is considering trying to persuade their ex-boss to leave Paris Saint-Germain.
And SunSport can reveal that Pochettino is seriously considering a switch back to the club as he is unhappy in Paris and would love a second chance at White Hart Lane.
It could be Spurs’ ace card to keep Harry Kane, who yesterday modelled their new home kit.
Jose Mourinho was appointed after Pochettino’s dismissal but was sacked last month ahead of the Carabao Cup final.
Yet Tottenham supremo Levy admitted to friends that sacking Pochettino was the worst mistake of his career.
Although Spurs fans are turning on Levy, he still remains a respected figure in football and is seen as making sensible football decisions.
So the fact Levy admits he has made a clanger is extremely unusual.
And Poch, who failed to land the Ligue 1 title for PSG and lost in the Champions League semi-finals to Manchester City, is struggling in Paris, where he starred as a player.

The former Southampton boss feels he has unfinished business at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and a return would be incredibly popular with the fans.
Pochettino has also told pals that he would be prepared to leave PSG for Spurs.
Otherwise, Brighton boss Graham Potter is in the frame but Levy feels he is a gamble.
Spurs hit back in the fight to keep Kane by releasing pictures of him in next season’s shirt.
The pics were taken BEFORE the striker told them last week he wants to leave this summer.
Tottenham, who have remained silent during Kane’s push for a move, defiantly used their star man as part of yesterday’s kit launch.
It shows Levy is not willing to let the England captain leave without a fight. Kane still has three years of his £230,000-a-week contract left but wants a move to Manchester City.
Levy has placed a £150million price tag on the frontman’s head.
Pep Guardiola’s City are favourites to land him as they hunt a replacement for Sergio Aguero, who is leaving this summer.
Manchester United are also in the frame.
