The Southampton boss has been widely tipped to take charge at White Hart Lane following Tim Sherwood’s sacking earlier this week.
But former Queens Park Rangers manager Warnock feels that Pochettino is not experienced enough to be successful at a club of Spurs’ stature.
“I don’t think Pochettino is the answer because he’s inexperienced,” Warnock told talkSPORT.
“To go to a club like Southampton, and I’m not being disrespectful to Southampton, there’s no expectation.
“They’ve got young lads and they’re going to sell one here or there whereas at Spurs there’s so much expectation.
“Harry [Redknapp] got them fourth and they’ve been trying to get fourth ever since and they’ve been thinking they were doing the right thing sacking all these managers.
“I don’t think Pochettino’s got enough about him. It’s too big a club for him to warrant getting that job. It’s a massive gamble if [Daniel] Levy does it but he might be the only one available.”
