Sherwood brought back to Spurs as Poch leaves for Argentina
The two managers met last season during Spurs' 3-2 home win over Pochettino's Southampton - an exact replica of the scoreline that The Saints lost to Tottenham earlier that season.
Mauricio Pochettino has left Tottenham Hotspur just weeks after joining from Southampton to succeed Tim Sherwood - now the Englishman has been reinstated in his old post in the Spurs dugout.
Sherwood took over from Portuguese manager Andre Villas-Boas in December of last year following a poor run of results, and guided Spurs from 7th place, where 'AVB' left them, to 6th place to comfortably secure a spot in this season's UEFA Europa League.
He was given a contract which was to last just over one year, but left the club at the end of the season, and Pochettino was hired by chairman Daniel Levy, who was confident that the man from Argentina would be able to deliver success to the club, who many feel were weakened following the world record transfer of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
With the money that was made from the sale of the Welshman, Spurs invested large sums of money into new signings, but only a couple of them came good last season, while the likes of Spanish striker Roberto Soldado, who cost the club £13 million with clauses in the transfer that could see the fee rise to around £26 million only scoring six goals in 28 league appearances.
But players like Christian Eriksen and Vlad Chiricheș were well received by the Tottenham faithful, and going into this season there was a lot of optimism from supporters about the club's future.
But with Pochettino leaving for his native Argentina for unknown reasons, Sherwood was given another chance by Mr. Levy. But with this clean slate, can the 45-year-old make the expectant fans happy this season like he couldn't last year?
