Tottenham Hotspur have drawn up a four-man shortlist to replace Antonio Conte as manager, with Mauricio Pochettino reportedly at the top of the list.
The Italian manager was sacked by Spurs on Tuesday after a disappointing season in which the club finished seventh in the Premier League and failed to qualify for the Champions League.
Now, the club is looking for a new manager and have reportedly drawn up a four-man shortlist to replace Conte.
At the top of the list is former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, who left the club in November 2019. The Argentine is currently out of work and is reportedly keen to return to the club.
The other three names on the list are former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, former Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte and former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.
Allegri is the most experienced of the four, having won five Serie A titles with Juventus and the Champions League with AC Milan. He has been out of work since leaving Juventus in 2019.
Conte is also a proven winner, having won three Serie A titles with Juventus and the Premier League with Chelsea. He has been out of work since leaving Inter Milan in 2019.
Lampard is the least experienced of the four, having only managed Chelsea for one season. However, he did lead the club to a fourth-place finish in the Premier League and the FA Cup final.
It is unclear who will be appointed as the new Spurs manager, but it is clear that the club is looking for a proven winner. Pochettino is the favorite to return to the club, but it remains to be seen if he will be given the job.
Only time will tell who will be appointed as the new Spurs manager, but it is clear that the club is looking for a manager who can bring success back to the club.
