Former players including Gary Neville and Nicky Butt have also given their backing to Pochettino getting the role, despite the former admitting that Ten Hag is the heavy favourite.
Despite some feeling that Pochettino should get the job, the club's hierarchy is edging closer towards Ten Hag to become the club's second Dutch permanent manager following Louis van Gaal.
