Next Tottenham Hotspur manager: Who will replace Mauricio Pochettino? All the information you need on next Tottenham Hotspur manager odds

Mauricio Pochettino smiles as he walks onto the pitch prior to an International Champions Cup match between Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid in Melbourne.

Next Tottenham Hotspur manager: Mauricio Pochettino took charge of the Spurs dugout in 2014 and is committed to the White Hart Lane club until 2021. The Argentine has the backing of high-ranking board members but if the relationship soured, or if an elite European side swooped for Mauricio, who would replace the Poch? We provide information on all of the likely candidates, including next Tottenham Hotspur manager odds, right here.



Club Status


A club built on attack-minded football, Tottenham Hotspur have begun to show off defensive prowess in recent seasons and this new-found all-round game has seen them climb the Premier League ladder.

Founded in 1882, the North Londoners have won an array of trophies in their 133-year history but are yet to win a title – or even an FA Cup – in the Premier League era. 

Spurs are set to swap the 36,284 capacity White Hart Lane ground for a new 61,000 seater stadium (planned opening in 2018) and, armed with one of the most exciting young managers in world football - Mauricio Pochettino - combined with their status as one of the historic and financial superpowers of London, it may well only be a matter of time until they secure major honours.

Current Manager


Mauricio Pochettino

A world-renowned head coach at just 44-years-old, Mauricio Pochettino started his managerial career at the same club he finished his playing career as a centre back – at Espanyol.

It was at the La Liga club where he demonstrated he was willing to make tough decisions, providing they were the right ones.

In 2009 he took Espanyol from the brink of relegation and into a comfortable tenth place finish with a side featuring nine players who were his team-mates just a matter of years before. The players responded well to Pochettino, though. And the Argentine was even willing to drop iconic forward Raul Tamudo, another former team-mate of his, in favour of Dan Osvaldo, who banged in 21 goals from his 46 appearances in all competitions for the club.

In total, Pochettino had a 33% win ratio at Espanyol which he vastly improved at his next job, as he returned a winning ratio of 38% at Southampton.

The ease in which he adapted to life in the Premier League, combined with his ability to capture incredible results (including home wins against the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea), attracted the attention of Tottenham Hotspur, who eventually made a move in May, 2014, where he has been ever since.

In many ways, Pochettino satisfies what Tottenham love in a manager. He is a head coach who adopts exciting strategies, who can bring through local or English talent (Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Dele Alli) while also demonstrating an eye for a bargain in the transfer window (Dier and Toby Alderweireld).

Pochettino most recently guided the club to a third place finish and signalled his intent to usher Spurs into their new stadium by committing to a contract that will keep him at the club until 2021.

Pochettino is completely comfortable in his role at Tottenham Hotspur and, considering his recent contract extension, it is unlikely that the club’s upper brass are even considering alternatives.

The only spanner that could get thrown in the works is if Pochettino is tempted by offers from elsewhere, but these may not be forthcoming for a number of seasons.

For instance, Pochettino was an outside bet at 10/1 to move to Manchester United to succeed Louis van Gaal (though Jose Mourinho was the clear favourite). He has also been linked with the PSG position.

When it comes to next Tottenham Hotspur manager odds, the major bookmakers will only offer prices on request, as Pochettino is so comfortable in his current role.

Owner and Manager Relationship


Tottenham Hotspur are owned by an investment company, ENIC Group, fronted by Joe Lewis, who is hardly a vocal presence at Tottenham (reportedly based in the Bahamas) and Daniel Levy, who everybody in football has heard of.

Levy was instrumental in rewarding Pochettino with a bumper five-year deal in the early part of 2016 and has a good relationship with the first team coach.

Potential Future Managers and Tottenham Hotspur Manager Betting Advice


Though Pochettino was the favourite to succeed Tim Sherwood in 2014 according to next Tottenham Hotspur manager betting odds at the time, Spurs could still call upon a number of other candidates should they and Mauricio do the unthinkable and part ways in the near future.

Frank de Boer, now at Inter Milan, was a strong favourite for the role two years ago, as was Rafa Benitez, while Thomas Tuchel would also be one to keep an eye on.

Right now it is clear Tottenham see Pochettino as the man to build a dynasty and, with time on his side, the manager may well have the same idea.
