Pochettino ends his gardening leave

Former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has ended his gardening leave.

That means that the Argentine is now free to join another club without first having to negotiate with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

Pochettino was sacked by Tottenham last November, but under the terms of his final settlement package, Spurs were entitled to compensation in the event that he took a job with another club before the end of the Premier League season.

Under normal circumstances that would have been on Sunday and means that he is now free to pursue other employment offers.

Spurs continue to pay his £8.5 million annual salary, and are now keen for him to find a new job to ease the pressure on their wage bill.

The Argentine has been heavily linked with the Newcastle job if the controversial takeover of the club by a Saudi-backed consortium is allowed to go ahead, although there are many pressure groups lining up to oppose it.
