The club president made the decision to sack Mauricio Pochettino.
However, now now he believes a reunion is not out of the question.
Mauricio Pochettino could one day return to Tottenham for a second spell at the helm, chairman Daniel Levy has suggested. Pochettino, who guided Spurs to four successive top-four finishes in the Premier League, as well as last season’s Champions League final, was sacked in November following a poor start to the campaign.
Jose Mourinho was swiftly appointed his successor, with Spurs winning five of their seven matches since in all competitions. Levy made the call to dismiss Pochettino, but hinted it does not necessarily mean the end of the Argentine’s association with Spurs, who established themselves as one of the Premier League’s elite clubs under his guidance.
“You have to understand I had built up a personal relationship with Mauricio over five and a half years,” Levy told the Evening Standard. “It is not something I ever wanted. Personally, it was incredibly difficult, I told him that and he understood. He hass been in football, he understands. It is not personal and I am sure he will come back stronger and get an opportunity to manage another great club. Maybe one day he will come back to us.
“I am not going to sit here and analyse the past. It is not productive. Mauricio did a fantastic job for us, we are very grateful. I wish him all the best for the future. I am still in contact with him. My relationship is very good with him. It just got to the point where it felt we needed a divorce”, he added.
