Daniel Levy hints at Mauricio Pochettino's return to Tottenham as manager

- Daniel Levy has hinted at Mauricio Pochettino's possible return to coaching role with Tottenham soon

- The Spurs chief also admitted that sacking the Argentine manager was a hard decision

- He also gives clues suggesting that Jose Mourinho's spell with the club may be short-lived

Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy, has broken silence on Mauricio Pochettino's sacking with a huge hint that the Argentine may possibly return to Spurs in the future.

The Argentine was given a disgraceful marching order out of Tottenham Stadium in an astonishing circumstance that eased in the return of Jose Mourinho.

Pochettino spent five years with the Premier League giants and led them to their first Champions League final against Liverpool in Spain last season.

His sacking, however, generated ripples of controversies with a section of fans raising an eye brow against the decision.

Barely two months after the change, Levy said the former manager will be back on managerial role in the future, suggesting that Jose Mourinho's relationship with the North London side may be short-lived, Mirror UK reports.

The Spurs chief also disclosed that sacking Pochettino was the hardest decision that passed through his desk, though admitted that it is for the goodness of the club which was inching down the Premier League log.

"The pressure these managers are under is immense," Levy told The Evening Standard.

"There aren't many managers that manage a club for five years. [The longevity of Sir] Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger is very, very, very unusual.

"I think it is very unlikely you are going to see a repeat of that. The Ferguson and Wenger eras are in the past.

"Managers don't even sign five-year contracts. They sign for two years and then another coach comes in," the Spurs chief further said.
