Free since leaving Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino would be in contact with Benfica Lisbon.
Pochettino has been free since last November and his dismissal from Tottenham. The Argentinian technician takes his time to find an interesting new project. Could a stay on the Estadio de la Luz side interest him? Doubt is allowed.
In his various media outings, Pochettino had assured that he did not rule out any options for the future but that the English championship remains the one that attracts him the most. He worked there for six years (between 2013 and 2019).
To succeed in this bet and make Pochettino the successor of Bruno Lage, the benfiquist decision-makers would be ready to put the high price, by offering a very attractive salary. If he joins Benfica, the former PSG defender will be the first foreign coach to officiate there since Spaniard Quique Flores (2008/09).
