Mauricio Pochettino is the frontrunner to take over as Tottenham’s next manager, with Antonio Conte’s future at the club in doubt. The former PSG manager is currently priced at 3/1 with talkSPORT BET to return to the Tottenham dugout for a second time, following Conte’s outburst in a press conference after Spurs’ 3-3 draw with Southampton on Saturday.
Tottenham were leading 3-1 against relegation-threatened Southampton before conceding two goals in the final 13 minutes to only come away with a point. Conte’s post-match press conference saw him vent his frustration, questioning why Tottenham have not won anything in the past 20 years and calling for change at the club.
Conte is now the odds-on favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his role, with Pochettino deemed the most likely to take over. Pochettino previously managed Tottenham for over five years between 2014 and 2019, achieving top-four finishes in four of his five full seasons and taking the club to their first-ever Champions League final in 2019.
The Argentine spent 18 months in charge of PSG following his departure from Tottenham, winning a league and cup title before leaving last summer. Current Tottenham technical coach Ryan Mason has the next shortest odds at 4/1, while former Spain and Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is another manager without a club at the moment and has also been linked with the north London club.
Current Fulham manager Marco Silva is priced at 12/1 to take over at Spurs following his impressive season at Craven Cottage, where he has taken the newly promoted side to a battle for European football in his first season back in the top flight. Former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has the same odds as Silva – the German notably delivered the Blues their second-ever Champions League title after only half a season in charge.
It remains to be seen who will take over at Tottenham, but Pochettino appears to be the favourite at this stage.
