​Bayern Munich star Kimmich lauds Pochettino

Bayern Munich star Joshua Kimmich has lavished praise on recently sacked manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine coach lost his job at Tottenham Hotspur this week, where he was replaced by Jose Mourinho.

But despite getting the sack, Pochettino has many admirers around Europe.

It appears that Bayern star Kimmich is one of them. Pochettino has been linked to the Bayern job for next season.

"I do not know if he [Pochettino] is a candidate for us," Kimmich told reporters.

"What you can say is that Tottenham were fighting at the top for years, they had brilliant consistency.

"He's a top coach, but I don't know if he is an option for us."
