What the newspapers say
Former Tottenham and PSG manager Maurice Pochettino is set for “surprise talks” with Ligue 1 club Nice and is set to “replace” the club’s “pressure boss” Lucien Favre, reports the Daily Mail via FootMercato. The Argentine could return to the coaching bench after being sacked by PSG in the summer despite guiding the club to the league title.
Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez and Tottenham’s centre-back Christian Romero are both stranded due to visa delays due to the closure of the US embassy following the Queen’s death, according to the Daily Mirror via TyC Sports. The two Argentina internationals were due to travel to Miami for two friendlies but reportedly delays meant they couldn’t get their visas in time.
The Daily Mail writes that the former midfielder of Manchester City and Ivory Coast Yaya Toure supports the England U21s in preparing for games against Italy and Germany. The 39-year-old is completing his coaching badges and works at Tottenham’s academy. He is said to have spent two days with the Under-21s at St George’s Park working with the head coach Lee Carsley and his team.
