Leeds United may sound out former Spurs and PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino if they do end up parting ways with Jesse Marsch.
According to I journalist Michael Hincks on 29 October, he’s reportedly waiting for a bigger club to offer him but Leeds could touch base to gauge his thoughts on the job.
However, the Argentine is unlikely to accept it with him probably waiting to see which Champions League clubs will change managers next year.
Hard to get
While most Leeds fans would love to have the Argentine at Elland Road, the chances of them luring him are bleak, to say the least.

Poch rejected a move to Aston Villa who are a more established Premier League side and have richer owners and more money to spend on players.
For him to say yes to Leeds would take something really special and with the managerial situations at clubs like Juventus, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid, he may feel that waiting for those kinds of jobs would be better for him.
Leeds ideally should go down the route of bringing in someone like Marcelo Gallardo or Kjetil Knutsen – two managers that have been touted as the next big things in the game.
Neither have Premier League experience and if they do think that they deserve the elite jobs, Leeds would be the perfect stepping stone for them to prove their mettle in the toughest league in the world.
