CHERRIES boss Eddie Howe has been listed in the betting to become the next Tottenham Hotspur manager after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked tonight.

Howe has been rated at between 10-1 and 16-1 with most leading bookmakers to make the move to the north London outfit from Vitality Stadium.

The 41-year-old has guided Cherries to five seasons in the Premier League, having re-joined from Burnley in October 2012.

Only Wycombe’s Gareth Ainsworth has been in the same managerial post longer than Howe across all four English divisions.

Jose Mourinho is the odds-on favourite to succeed Pochettino, while Carlo Ancelotti, Massimiliano Allegri and Brendan Rodgers are also in the running, according to the bookmakers.

Pochettino was at the helm with Spurs for 293 games and delivered four successive top-four Premier League finishes, challenging for the title in 2015-16 and 2016-17.

He also memorably guided the club to their first Champions League final last season, but they fell short in the Madrid showpiece in a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool.

His assistant Jesus Perez, and coaches Miguel D'Agostino and Antoni Jimenez have also left the club.

Chairman Daniel Levy, who appointed Pochettino in June 2014, said: "We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the board have taken lightly, nor in haste.

"Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and the beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.

"It falls on the board to make the difficult decisions - this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with Mauricio and his coaching staff - but we do so in the club's best interests."
