Speculation began to mount on Twitter yesterday regarding Mauricio Pochettino potentially being an option to replace David Moyes at West Ham.
The Argentine told Sky Sports yesterday that he is willing to manage a club outside of the so-called top six and that he wants to remain in London.
The 48-year-old has been out of work since being sacked by Tottenham in November 2019.
And a manager of his calibre will surely not be out of the game for too much longer. He worked wonders during his time in charge of Spurs.
Poch’s shining moment was taking the north London outfit to the Champions League final in 2019 on a limited budget.
Pochettino’s comments yesterday led to some West Ham fans suggesting that he should be appointed in place of David Moyes.
As unlikely as it may seem, the Hammers should certainly give it a shot.
Moyes is a decent manager. But he will never take the east London outfit to the next level.
Meanwhiule, Pochettino would surely be the ideal candidate to really take the club forward.
And the chances of him rocking up at the London Stadium at the end of the season were greatly enhanced after he suggested that he wants to remain in the capital and is willing to manage a team outside the so-called big six.
Some West Ham fans have urged the club’s owners to at least try to bring the Argentine to east London this summer…
Would be over the moon with this, but in reality I can’t see it happening.

Think he’s nailed on for Newcastle unfortunately, no manager of his standard will ever come under these owners !!

@davidgold @jsullivanwhu Looks like Pochettino is looking for a West Ham move. Club outside top 6, wants to stay in London, big club with great fans. Sounded like us but then he said owners with ambition that sort of rules us out unless there is a new buyer on the horizon?

The sad thing is Diddy Dave thinks he knows more than any manager he employs. We are falling further behind the haves now, especially if Newcastle get Pochettino
