Argentinean Poch has been out of work since the summer after he was let go by French league winners Paris Saint-Germain.

He recently turned down an approach by Aston Villa for a swift return to football.

And he has also thrown his hat into the ring to become England manager after Gareth Southgate.

However, it was Tottenham supporters that were left longing for the 50-year-old with a large number of them unhappy with current boss Antonio Conte.

One Twitter user wrote: “Please come back Poch, Conte is f***ing useless.”

Another wrote: “I’ll never feel the connection I felt with Poch with Conte.”

A fellow fan commented: ““Seeing Poch on BBC SPA-GER coverage makes me miss him at spurs so much ! He’s magic you know Mauricio Pochettino.”

While another tweet said: “Poch is still one of my favourite people in the whole world. What a man. I hope one day he does come back.”

Angry Conte hit back at the Spurs fans who booed his team off earlier this month before the World Cup break.

And the emotional Italian hinted that he could even walk away when his contract expires at the end of the season if they don’t get behind his players.

Meanwhile, Spurs sacked Poch was sacked by Tottenham after five-and-a-half years in charge back in November 2019.

Despite not winning a trophy for Spurs, he guided the club to four consecutive Champions League finishes.

Prior to his arrival, Spurs had finished in the top four in just two of their previous 22 seasons in the Premier League.

He also took the club to the Champions League final in 2019, but Liverpool prevailed as they won 2-0.

After replacing Tim Sherwood in 2014, Poch took charge of 293 games, winning 159, losing 72 and drawing on 62 occasions.
