With coach Pochettino being mentioned as the next head coach of Leeds United in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), attention is focusing on whether a teacher-student confrontation with Son Heung-min (Tottenham) will unfold.

While rumors of the dismissal of coach Jesse Marsh have been raging since the beginning of the year, Carlos Corberan, who leads England Championship (second division) West Bromwich Albion (West Brom), was initially mentioned as the first choice to be the next coach of Leeds.

Coach Corberan has been recognized for his ability this season, leading West Brom to the upper middle of the Championship. Currently, West Brom’s ranking is 6th, the last line to advance to the promotion playoffs. Moreover, Corberan has coached the Leeds Under-23 (U-23) team, so he knows Leeds well. However, Corveran’s weakness is that he has not yet had the experience of leading a big league first team.

In the midst of this, according to local media, Son Heung-min’s old mentor Pochettino, who has accumulated a lot of experience in the EPL, is rapidly emerging as a candidate for Leeds. Pochettino is one of the few leaders who are expected to show leadership right away without adapting in the EPL, which is considered first among the European big leagues.

Coach Pochettino, who drew attention by placing Southampton, his first club in the EPL, in 8th place in the 2013-2014 season, took charge of Tottenham the following season and led it until 2019, finishing runner-up in the 2018-2019 season European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) etc. has been good. 온라인바카라

Coach Pochettino, who led Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), which was lined with’superstars’ such as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, put down the baton in July last year, has been taking a break since. The Daily Star, a British newspaper, said, “It is known that Pochettino is on the list of candidates to replace Marsh.” It seems to be in the right balance.”

Local newspaper Leeds Live said, “Leeds supporters strongly want Pochettino as their next manager.” According to the Evening Standard, the betting company ‘Betfair’ launched a product to take pictures of Leeds’ next manager, and put Pochettino in second place. The first priority is Corberan, and the third priority is Bielsa.

If manager Pochettino ascends to the Leeds command tower, he will reunite with Son Heung-min, the ‘favorite disciple’, as the manager and player of the opposing team. Son Heung-min, who wore a Tottenham uniform in the summer of 2015 during Pochettino’s tenure, has since been playing for Tottenham and has stood tall as a ‘world class’ player, such as becoming the EPL top scorer in the 2021-2022 season.

When Son Heung-min had difficulties in the early stages of entering the EPL, manager Pochettino helped him adapt by sending unwavering support. At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, coach Pochettino said, “Son Heung-min is now one of the best strikers in the world, and he is a player who deserves praise.”
