Pochettino is coming back to the elite!0
Former Tottenham and PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino could take charge of the England national team in the very near future! The fact is that the current coach of the Three Lions, Gareth Southgate, is very likely to become unemployed after the 2022 World Cup.
Pochettino's coaching career is quite controversial. It began at his home club Espanyol, after which there were Southampton, Tottenham and PSG. And while the 52-year-old Argentine made significant progress with his clubs in the English Premier League, then even the PSG league championship did not save him from sacking. Like it or not, the Parisians’ bosses are waiting for the treble every year, including the Champions League.
Mauricio is also not very good at working with football stars. Once in the same team with Messi, Neymar and Mbappe, the Argentine completely lost control in the locker room. Whereas the more modest Kane, Son-Heung Min and Eriksen did not create such problems. Despite this, Pochettino is a high-level manager and his next job will be in with a top team one way or another.
In such scenarios, Mauricio Pochettino has a good chance to lead a national team for the first time in his life. The Euro 2020 finalists, England, after that success, lost form drastically, and fell into the B division in this Nations League draw. It became clear that Gareth Southgate did not correspond to the level of this team. In terms of the quality of players, especially forwards, the English are one of the strongest in the world, but Southgate stubbornly acts defensively and extinguishes the entire attacking potential of the team.
Gareth will probably work with England at the World Cup in Qatar, after which he will leave his post and, most likely, give it up in favor of Pochettino, who is already eager to work. Under the leadership of the Argentine, football played by the Three Lions would be more spectacular and productive in attack. Another candidate for the role of manager of the English is Brendan Rodgers. However, his reputation has deteriorated a bit amid Leicester's disastrously poor start in the Premier League, so he is unlikely to be trusted with the national team.
The era of Gareth Southgate in the England national team is coming to a logical conclusion. He laid the foundation for the future success of the team, which completely failed the first two decades of the twenty-first century. Under the strict guidance of Pochettino, the British would be able to take one more step forward and finally win any major trophy.
