Jamie O‘Hara pleads with Tottenham to sack Antonio Conte and bring back Mauricio Pochettino in talkSPORT meltdown | The Sun

FORMER Tottenham midfielder Jamie O'Hara has called on the club to sack Antonio Conte and seal Mauricio Pochettino's return.

Spurs were dumped out of the Champions League in dismal fashion on Wednesday evening as a goalless second leg saw them lose 1-0 on aggregate to AC Milan in the round of 16.

The Lilywhites' European exit comes just one week after they were eliminated from the FA Cup by Championship side Sheffield United.

It means the club's wait for a first trophy since 2008 rumbles on for at least another season.

And after the AC Milan result, Tottenham fans were heard singing ex-manager Pochettino's name inside the concourse of the stadium.

In a post-match interview, Conte then admitted he could be axed before the end of the season.

And O'Hara, who came through the Spurs youth set-up and featured for the first team from 2005 to 2011, wants the change in management to happen NOW.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: "I feel for the Spurs fans there tonight because it was embarrassing. It was a pathetic performance all over the park.

"I think for me now the time has come for Conte to go. He doesn’t look like he wants to be there and the players are not getting what he wants to do.

"I just think put him out of his misery, put everyone out of their misery, get Poch in and move on.

"Let him have three months until the end of the season to see what he’s got, and then have pre-season and the start of next season and we might get top four.

"There’s no way I can keep watching… I’m actually tired of watching Tottenham, I just want to enjoy watching the team."

Pochettino, 51, was sacked by Spurs in 2019 after a five-year spell at the club and replaced by Jose Mourinho.

He guided Tottenham to three top four finishes – including second place in 2017.

The Argentine also led them to the 2019 Champions League final.

After leaving Spurs,he was appointed Paris Saint-Germain boss at the beginning of 2021.

He had 18 months in the role, in which he won Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France, but was dismissed at the end of last season.

Meanwhile, Spurs are on their third manager since sacking Pochettino.

Mourinho was axed after less than 18 months and replaced by permanent successor Nuno Espirito Santo.
