Pochettino, 47, would definitely be well sought after his exploits in his managerial career. He first impressed in Spain, managing Espanyol for three years. He was later appointed by Southampton, where he took the club to an eight placed finish. In the next season, he was appointed by Tottenham Hotspurs. Although he did not win major trophies, Pochettino is known for building a strong Spurs squad.

Last year, he took the team to the Champions League finals, and was sacked after a disappointing performance in the current season.
