Liverpool legend John Barnes believes it’s too early for Mauricio Pochettino to return back to Tottenham.
PSG boss has been linked with the return to his former side, though the French club have no interest in allowing him to leave. It means Spurs will continue their searches for a permanent manager, having Antonio Conte on the list of the managerial candidates.
What concerns Pochettino’s possible reunion with the Lilywhites, Barnes said: “I think it’s too early for him to come back. He hasn’t been at PSG for that long.
“If you look at the managerial merry-go-round then who would replace him at PSG if he was to leave?
“Is it wise to go back? Would he go back? He knows the place well. I know nothing can surprise you in football but that for me is a non-starter.”
