Pochettino refuses to rule out Real Madrid move

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has refused to rule out managing Real Madrid in the future.

The Spurs boss has been linked with one day managing the famous Spanish side after displaying his excellent managerial skills during his two-and-a-half years at the North London club. He has transformed them from serial also rans into Champions League regulars, finishing third and second respectively in his first two years in charge.

While he is still dedicated to the club in the short term, Pochettino was asked if he was interested in one day taking of at the Bernabeu. Speaking to Spanish radio station Onda Cero, Pochettino said:

“Football will bring me to where football wants me to be.

“Jorge Grifa [former Argentina international footballer] told me to focus on the present, to maintain your professionalism and let things happen, and he was like a second father to me.

“In football you always have to endure highs and lows whether you are managing in England or in Spain, so it is normal for me to go through this.”

There has been speculation suggesting that current Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane could be sacked after his side slipped 16 points behind league leaders Barcelona at the weekend.
