Daniel Levy admits he has not closed the door on the idea of Mauricio Pochettino returning to Tottenham Hotspur as manager again one day.

It has only been a matter of weeks since Spurs supremo Daniel Levy sacked Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine was a revelation in North London. Leading Spurs to some dizzying height.

However, after a run of poor form, and talk of unrest in the dressing room Levy took the decision to relieve him of his duties.

He was replaced by the self-proclaimed “special one” Jose Mourinho.

In an interview with The Evening Standard, Levy admits it was a tough task to let Poch go.

He said:

“It is not something I ever wanted.

“Personally, it was incredibly difficult, I told him that and he understood.”

“He’s been in football, he understands.”

“It’s not personal and I’m sure he’ll come back stronger and get an opportunity to manage another great club.”

When asked about a possible return one day, he would not rule the idea out.

He added:

“Why not? I don’t close the door on anything.”

“Mauricio did a fantastic job, we are very grateful.”

” I wish him all the best for the future. I’m still in contact with him.”

Pochettino is still currently unemployed but there is rumored to be a lot of interest in his services.
