Some Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter are eyeing up a move for Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone after things went from bad to worse at the weekend.
Spurs went into the Premier League clash against Brighton and Hove Albion on the back of a 7-2 defeat against Bayern Munich and without an away win in the top flight since January 20, but they failed to do what was needed as they fell to a 3-0 loss.
Understandably given the generally dismal start they’ve made to the campaign, some supporters are already beginning to discuss potential replacements for the Argentine, and it appears that one of his national compatriots is well thought of among the north London outfit’s faithful.

Simeone has been with the team from the Spanish capital since 2011, delivering a La Liga title in 2014 as well as two Europa League trophies.
The 49-year-old has also become renowned for his side’s defensive record – they have only conceded four goals in eight league matches so far this term for example – and that nous could be needed after Tottenham let in 10 in their previous two fixtures.
Perfect Poch replacement?
Spurs supporters have been quick to have their say on the South American, with one believing he is “the only one who could take us further than Poch”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Allegri or Simeone

The only one who could take us further than Poch is Diego Simeone.

Simeone for me.
Thing is though, with Levy & ENIC running the club a top manager will never arrive at spurs, we’ll end up with someone like Eddie Howe who will toe the line & end up getting treated the same as Poch has been, rinse & repeat.

Get Simeone at all costs !! Love Poch but feel he’s got to the end of the road with us now. Players should feel embarrassed.
