THE ‘SPECIAL ONE’ EYEING SPURS JOB TO REPLACE UNDER-FIRE POCH
Jose Mourinho is keeping an eye on Mauricio Pochettino’s future at Tottenham, it has been claimed.
Mourinho is currently waiting for the right opportunity to come up before he makes a return to management.
And according to the Mail, the prospect of a potential vacancy at Spurs is keeping him interested.
Pochettino’s future at Tottenham has been in some doubt ever since he admitted at the end of last season that he may have quit if the club had won the Champions League.
And the Argentine’s situation has not been helped by major frustrations over the club’s transfer business.
The disappointing start to the season has added further fuel to the belief that the 47-year-old could soon be looking for a way out of Tottenham.
And the Mail report that Spurs are a club who appeal to Mourinho.
MOYES OPEN TO SHOCK RETURN AS EVERTON BOSS
David Moyes is open to making a shock return as Everton manager — and has been made the bookies’ favourite to replace under-fire Marco Silva.
The Portuguese boss is under increasing pressure following the club’s dismal start to the season.
Everton find themselves third from bottom having won just two of their opening eight matches – leading to speculation Moyes is being lined up to replace Silva.
And the Mirror report that the former Manchester United boss would be interested in the chance to take charge for a second time at Goodison Park if the job became available.
Silva is facing the threat of the sack having seen his side fail to win a league game since the first day of September despite spending heavily on his squad.
The club backed him with more than £100million (A$181m) over the summer but there have been few signs of improvement on the pitch — meaning a change at the helm could be likely.

LEEDS TARGET RANGERS GAFFER GERRARD
Leeds are interested in taking Steven Gerrard to Elland Road should Marcelo Bielsa leave at the end of the season, according to reports.
The Liverpool legend is currently in charge at Rangers, and has got the club challenging Celtic since taking over at Ibrox last year on a four-year deal.
But according to Football Insider, he could be making a return to English football if Leeds get their way.
The Championship side are thought to be starting to make a contingency plan should current boss Bielsa decide to leave.
Bielsa – a surprise big-name appointment at the beginning of last season – decided to stay on for another campaign despite Leeds failing in their promotion bid.
His current deal expires at the end of this season so if United do not go up this time around, he is expected to leave.
