Former Tottenham chairman Alan Sugar has called for ex-Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to become Spurs manager.
Current Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has suffered a difficult start to the season and matters became worse on Saturday as they lost to Brighton 3-0 in the Premier League.
Brighton’s win came just days after Spurs’ 7-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
But Tottenham’s defeat to the Seagulls looks to be the final nail in the coffin in the eyes of Sugar, who tweeted that he wanted a replacement.
That replacement, however, is former Arsenal boss Wenger.
Sugar tweeted “Come to Spurs” in response to a tweet about Wenger, who has confirmed that FIFA have offered him a job.
Wenger has been out of a job since he left Arsenal at the end of the 2017/18 season.
In an interview with beIN Sports, Wenger spoke about the role that FIFA have offered him.Lord Sugar tells Tottenham to replace Mauricio Pochettino with Arsene Wenger after defeat (Image: GETTY)
“It would involve development of coaching, efficiency, educating players on developing careers once they are done with football,” he said.
Pochettino’s Spurs were easily undone by Brighton, who went 1-0 up at the Amex Stadium after just two minutes.
Summer signing Neil Maupay bundled in as goalkeeper Hugo Lloris appeared to break his arm after falling on it awkwardly.
Academy graduate Aaron Connolly then notched twice to finish off Spurs, who have won just six games in their last 20 Premier League matches.
Pochettino said after the game: "Hugo Lloris' injury had massive impact on the game. It was so early in the game. To concede so early and losing our captain it had an emotional impact on the team. We tried to find solutions, a different way to play but it was impossible. It’s a very difficult moment.
"I want to say thank you to the fans, it was a big effort to the fans and we put out that performance. We were at the top together but now we need to get more. It is not easy."
