That is the belief of former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, who has reminded the current boss the perks of his post at present.
Tottenham are through to the last eight of the Champions League, having been tied with Manchester City in Friday’s quarter-final draw.
Until a month ago too, the north London outfit were genuine Premier League title contenders alongside City and Liverpool.
Since leaving Southampton after 18 months in charge for Tottenham in 2014, the 47-year-old’s stock has risen significantly.
Pochettino has taken Spurs from being a top-six side during Redknapp’s days at the helm to a real Premier League force, and in Europe.
The ex-Espanyol manager’s four-and-a-half years of large success at Tottenham, despite not winning any silverware, has earned him admirers at the Bernabeu and Old Trafford.
But while he edged nearer this season to being appointed by one of the two giants of world football, that now appears highly unlikely.
Pochettino’s link to United comes as:
“It’s a job that’s as good as any job he could have DREAMED of”
Zinedine Zidane has returned to Real and replaced Santiago Solari after their horrendous nine months since the Frenchman’s surprise resignation.
At Spurs’ Premier League rivals United, meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has gone from being interim boss to usurping Pochettino as the club’s first choice to be handed the position permanently from the summer.
Redknapp does not consider Pochettino to be ‘stuck’ at Spurs, though – on the contrary, he feels the Argentinian could not find a better club to manage at present.
He exclusively told Starsport: “I think he’s well off, he’s got a great job, it’s a job that’s as good as any job he could have DREAMED of having when he was coming through the ranks, to be manager of Tottenham.
“New stadium, fantastic training ground, some absolutely top players, real good team.
“I’d be very happy where he is, it’s as good a job he could have dreaming of doing.
“Real Madrid is gone. Man United is gone – Solskjaer is sure to get that job.
“So I really don’t see where he could go that’s any better at the moment than managing Tottenham, I think it’s a great job for him.
“I’m sure he knows he’s well off.”
Tottenham have gone off the boil of late and are no longer in the title hunt, with even a top-four finish in doubt now too.
A poor run of three defeats and a draw in their last four league games, including a 2-1 defeat at relegation-threatened Southampton last time out, has left the Champions League quarter-finalists in danger of missing out on qualifying for next season’s competition altogether.
However, Redknapp still considers them favourites behind City and Liverpool to finish in the top four, mainly because of their star striker.
On Pochettino’s team at present, Redknapp added: “When you’ve got Harry Kane in your team, 25/30 goals a year, what a start that is for you.
“You can build your team round that every year.
“They’ve got some good player too, Dele Alli, they’re a good team, they’re where they are now, 3rd or 4th, that’s where they’ll be again this year.”
Regular Bournemouth fan Redknapp, who has no desire to return to football now in a professional sense, has now turned his attention from managing to writing.
Discussing his new book which comes out at the end of the season, ‘The World According to Harry Redknapp’, the 72-year-old said: “Yeah I was asked to do it, suddenly it seemed people were interested in other things away from the football.
“Since I done that programme everything’s gone crazy! Now it’s all people want to keep talking about the jungle and different things like that – ah if people are interested, it’s not a problem to me.
“It’s kept me busy every day. Better than sitting in an armchair when you get to 72 all day with your house slippers on watching television. Nah it’s kept me busy and I love being busy.”
Spurs are now in the midst of a three-week break from action due to being out of the FA Cup and their Premier League clash with Crystal Palace being postponed.
And while Redknapp keeps busy, it will give Pochettino a chance to regroup, which he may need after Tottenham’s dismal domestic spell.
Harry Redknapp’s new book ‘The World According to Harry Redknapp’ is being released on May 30 as he discovers his life and experiences outside of football with many tales from his school days, East End background, relationship with Sandra and spell in the Australian jungle.
