Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a move for former Manchester United boss
Attention has immediately turned to who will come through the door next in north London, and Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims Mourinho is being considered by Tottenham’s key decision-makers.
It’s reported that Daniel Levy will make a decision within hours, but Mourinho is on standby as he is interested in the vacant position at Tottenham.
The Portuguese manager has been without a cub ever since he left Manchester United last December, where he was replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Pochettino took charge of 293 games with Tottenham, helping them to reach last season’s Champions League final as the club ultimately fell short at the final hurdle.
With Tottenham sitting just six points above the relegation zone and are already 11 points off the pace in the hunt for Champions League qualification.
Tottenham are considering José Mourinho as new manager, after sacking Pochettino. And José would be open to start a discussion with Spurs. Daniel Levy will decide on next hours. ⚪️ #THFC #Tottenham #Spurs #Pochettino

Upon the announcement of Pochettino’s departure, Tottenham chairman Levy said: “
“It falls to the Board to make the difficult decisions – this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with Mauricio and his coaching staff – but we do so in the club’s best interests.
“We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters.”
