They will always be welcome here.“We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters.”SunSport previously reported how Spurs’ top target to replace Pochettino is RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann.Bournemouth gaffer Eddie Howe was also believed to be on the shortlist, along with Napoli’s Carlo Ancelotti, but now the Special One is odds-on to replace the Argentinian.8 Poch leaves Spurs after failing to win any of his last five Premier League gamesCredit: Getty Images – GettyMourinho has been keeping tabs on the situation at Spurs – despite being linked with a return to Real Madrid.Ladbrokes spokeswoman Jessica Reilly believes that the ex-Chelsea boss will soon be in the Spurs dressing room.She said: “Early fingers are pointing towards Mourinho leaving the Sky studio for a return to the dug out with Spurs.”Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp believes that the players have got Poch the sack due to their dire performances.He told Sky Sports: “They’ve obviously pushed the panic button. When people talk about all the players loving him, if they loved him that much maybe they should have done a bit better for him.”At the end of the day they’ve got him the sack as they have not been good enough. They’ve had one Champions League final. If you look back at the run, everything went their way a bit.”They haven’t won a trophy for five or six years with a team full of internationals and possible the best No 9 in the world.”Look at the quality they have – and they haven’t won anything.

Former Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is in advanced talks to take over from Poch.SunSport understands both sides are confident they can reach a deal which would see the 56-year-old take charge before Saturday’s crunch clash with West Ham.Despite not winning a trophy for Spurs, Poch, 47, guided the club to four consecutive Champions League finishes.Prior to his arrival, Spurs had finished in the top four in just two of their 22 seasons in the Premier League.He also took the club to the Champions League final last season, but Liverpool prevailed as they won 2-0.After replacing Tim Sherwood in 2014, Poch took charge of 293 games, winning 159, losing 72 and drawing on 62 occasions.It is understood that Tottenham will have to pay Pochettino £12.5million as he was contracted to the club until 2023.In a statement issued by Daniel Levy Levy addressing the shock sacking, he said: “We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the Board has taken lightly, nor in haste.“Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.

Hate to see it.”But another suggested: “This could be the biggest mistake the club has made.”BBC pundit and Tottenham legend Gary Lineker also blasted his former club.The former England striker tweeted: “He helped the club to punch massively above their weight for years. Good luck with finding a better replacement….ain’t gonna happen.”Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust statementWe’re shocked and saddened to hear our Club has sacked Mauricio Pochettino and his coaching staff. During his time at Spurs, Poch gave us many of our best moments as supporters, made Tottenham Hotspur a force to be reckoned with again, and forged a strong link with the fans. We will never forget the joy he brought us.Of course, results in the league have been disappointing for some time. But many fans thought Poch had earned the right to turn it around in the first sustained period of poor form we’ve had during his time at the Club. We now have to look forward and take stock. But there are questions that must be asked of the Board of THFC. 88Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked by @SpursOfficial. He helped the club to punch massively above their weight for years.
