Mauricio Pochettino has told Sky Sports that he has been in touch with Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy.

The former Tottenham head coach has said that he spoke to Levy last Saturday, and has added that the chairman found it hard to take the decision to dismiss him from his role earlier this season.

Pochettino was in charge of Tottenham from the summer of 2014 and was relieved of his duties at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in November 2019 after a run of disappointing results.

Pochettino told Sky Sports: “I spoke with him last Saturday but during the last six months we have always exchanged messages.

“He was very painful the day he took the decision, we were too, but like I told him from day one because maybe we will repeat the same conversion with the new people if any offer arrives.

“I need to behave in the same way when you sign me, when you show all your love, that maybe the day you believe we need to split.

“If in this five and a half years, the relationship was always building in respect and loyalty, that is football. Daniel took the decision to part ways and find a different management, we can only be respectful.

“It did not change our perception or relationship. We had some amazing memories. I am a person who holds onto my good memories and put the bad ones in the bin.”

Successful at Tottenham Hotspur

When Pochettino arrived at Tottenham, the North London club were struggling to finish in the top four of the Premier League.

The Argentine transformed the club, who went close to winning the title under him and also reached the final of the Champions League last season.

True, the opening months of this season were hugely disappointing, but most, if not all, Spurs fans will look back and consider Pochettino as one of the best managers they have had in the Premier League era.

Jose Mourinho is now in charge of Spurs, who are aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League table this season.
