Pochettino ‘desires’ to become Juventus manager, reveals cousin

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to leave the club for Italian giants Juventus.

This report is according to his cousin, who claims that the Argentine “desires” the Juventus hot seat after the exit of Max Allegri.

Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has already rejected a return to his former team, Juventus after agreeing a deal with Inter Milan.

While SunSport claims Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri is a leading contender after securing Champions League football next season.

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is also in the frame for a possible reunion with ex-Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

But Spurs favourite Pochettino could be the man in the Juventus dug-out next campaign as he is of major interest to the Bianconeri hierarchy after guiding the club to a European final with Liverpool.

And cousin Daniele Pochettino, the deputy mayor of Turin town Virle Piemonte, claims Pochettino would love to make the move in July.

He said: “Mauricio to Juventus is a feasible hypothesis. Everyone in our family wants to see him at Juve.

“He is certainly attracted to Italy. He told us he wants to come to our country to find his ancestral heritage.

“I met Mauricio a few months ago. We talked about Piemontese food (among other things). He’s a nice and helpful person.

“He has the desire to coach Juve. He’s equipped with all the qualities needed to coach Juve. Juve always recruit the best coaches.

“Juve are looking for a coach who has the profile of a winner and Mauricio has this attitude.

“In style, he is a bit like that of Conte because he wins with a competitive spirit and intensity.

“I don’t know if he can be convinced (to come to Juve). We must always see what would be eventually proposed to him.

“At the end, it is his decision. In the event he accepts Juve, we will welcome him with open arms.”
