Spurs fans have been reacting to a club post wishing both Mauricio Pochettino and Harry Redknapp a happy birthday.
The former managers both celebrate their birthday on the 2nd March, with Pochettino turning 48, whilst Redknapp turned 73 and both were treated to birthday wishes by the club on Twitter. The Argentinian manager took charge of 293 matches during his time at the North London club; winning 160, drawing 60 and losing 73.
Redknapp meanwhile took charge of 198 matches during his spell with the Lilywhites; winning 98, drawing 48 and losing 52 of his games in charge. With current boss Jose Mourinho having struggled in recent weeks, with Spurs having lost their last three games, it is no surprise to see a lot of fans commenting that they would love to see either Pochettino or Redknapp back managing the club.

These Spurs fans clearly miss Pochettino and want to see him come back to the club.
What do we think?
Unfortunately for those Spurs fans who are desperate to see Pochettino back at the club, Mourinho signed a contract until 2023 and with figures suggesting that he is one of the best-paid managers in the Premier League, it seems unlikely that he will be leaving the North London club anytime soon.
