Mauricio Pochettino Would Make An Ideal Juventus Manager

It could be a huge summer for Mauricio Pochettino.

Before the Argentine gets to go on holiday the coach has the chance to create history and become the first manager to guide Tottenham Hotspur to a Champions League title.

Win, lose or draw in Madrid, Pochettino will probably have a big decision to make.

Can he continue to work wonders at Spurs?

He hasn’t bought a player in the last two transfer windows but he has assembled a quality squad for The Lilywhites. That has allowed them to finish in the Premier League’s top four positions and get to that Champions League against Liverpool.

Can the Tottenham board give their manager the funds that will allow him to attract the players needed to compete with Manchester City for the league title? 

Maybe Mauricio will think he’s taken Tottenham Hotspur as far as he can.

He seemed to suggest as much just before his side’s European semi-final clash with Ajax (Via The Telegraph):

“To win the Champions League with Tottenham, in this circumstance, in this season, maybe I need to think a little bit to do something different in the future, for sure. Because to repeat this miracle, you know…”

It’s would be hard to argue if Pochettino did decide he’d taken this Spurs side as far as he can.

There’s also a big job out there and that role could be ideal for the talented manager.

Serie A champions Juventus recently announced that their current boss Massimiliano Allegri will be leaving the Turin giants this summer.

I have no doubts that Pochettino will be a name that will get a mention when Juve’s hierarchy are discussing a managerial shortlist.

He’s a coach that marries together a strong disciplined defence together with a creative and inspiring attack.

Mauricio also gets the best out of his players, works to a budget, trusts homegrown footballers and is very loyal to a club.

The fact he has established Spurs as a top four side in England and then guided them to a Champions League final will undoubtedly pique the interest of those in charge at Juventus.

In return they are a club that will back a boss and give them the tools necessary to compete at the highest level. They have a rich tradition and that will interest Pochettino and they’re also a team that show loyalty to managers that are successful with their side.

As a manager many will feel Mauricio Pochettino has overachieved at Tottenham Hotspur, that argument will go stratospheric if they win the Champions League in June.

Juventus might just want to see if the Argentine can finally bring them back the Champions League title!
