Report: AC Milan and Napoli could be an option for Pochettino after Spurs axing

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Napoli are both reportedly ‘options’ for Mauricio Pochettino if he chooses Italy as his next managerial destination.

The Argentine was sacked on Tuesday night after over five years in charge at Spurs, having led the London club to top-four finishes in four of them as well as a Champions League final last season.

However, Tottenham have won just three of their first 14 games of the Premier League season, and the 7-2 hammering from Bayern Munich in the Champions League plus the defeat to League Two side Colchester in the Carabao Cup can not have helped.

According to a report from, Serie A could come calling for Pochettino, who is originally of Piedmontese origin.

However, Juventus have put their faith in Maurizio Sarri so that does not represent an option for the 47-year-old despite previous links.

The report claims though that the possibility of coaching Milan ‘could excited Pochettino’, with Stefano Pioli set to leave next summer if a top six finish is not achieved (as per Corriere dello Sport, via MilanNews).

In addition, if Carlo Ancelotti were sacked by Napoli, their president Aurelio De Laurentiis could choose to move for Pochettino rather than another domestic candidate.
