Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Pochettino to Chelsea speculation

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly on Chelsea's shortlist.

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with the managerial job at Chelsea, by reports in both The Independent and The Times.

The Argentine is among the top names on a shortlist to be appointed in the summer, with former international teammate Diego Simeone also featuring.

Pochettino is currently doing an excellent job at Spurs, appearing to be in the midst of building a dynasty and laying ground work for years of success - as opposed to the quickfire spending deployed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and do many others in order to achieve short term trophy wins.

Chelsea's desire to win, and win immediately, has left them in a continuous cycle of hire and fire, having to turn to Guus Hiddink on a temporary basis until the end of the season, due to both their and Jose Mourinho's impatience with one another and the squad.

Switching clubs would therefore be a gamble for Pochettino, who could it seems be boss at Spurs for the next decade if he chooses to, while at Chelsea there would be a real risk that if he takes the job in the summer, he could land up being sacked by the end of the season if results are not instantly to the standard demanded.

Tottenham fans are confident Pochettino will be sticking around, dismissing Chelsea's chances as fanciful. Here is a look at what they have had to say via Twitter...
