3 candidates to replace Chelsea coach Conte

Mauricio Pochettino has worked wonders but Daniel Levy must loosen purse strings to take Spurs to next level

Pochettino warns Levy: 'Spurs must take risks'

Former Chelsea commercial chief Christian Purslow has claimed that Mauricio Pochettino swapping Tottenham Hotspur for their London rivals would not be a "logical move".

Chelsea have failed to qualify for next season's Champions League and the Italian looks set to leave just 12 months after winning the Premier League title in his first season in English football.

The Argentine has been linked with a move to Chelsea since his comments, with the Blues looking to replace Antonio Conte at the end of the season.

The chairman will also be aware that Pochettino's two other favoured destinations, Paris Saint-Germain or Manchester United, are not available this summer after Thomas Tuchel was appointed as PSG boss, while Jose Mourinho retains the backing of Old Trafford's decision-makers.

Spurs have finished in the top four in the Premier League for a third straight season under Pochettino which is a great achievement but there is a sense of negativity at the north London club right now and that is for the lack of return for the good work Poch has done.

"We've been very stable".

"But we are going to talk, next week, to create the new project, or what I think what we need to do, together again, to try to improve".

"I think we've shown in the Champions League we have something we can take with us".

"If we want to play and be real contenders for big, big trophies, yes, we need to review a little".

"I want to say thank-you for their unbelievable support this season", Son told his club's official website.

"I love the ways his teams go out and play, and the budgets he has had and what he has done with players - everyone I've spoken to who has played under him has loved his tactics and loved the way he plays". In this type of situation, with a club with our unbelievable fans, being fearless is the most important, and to take risks.
