Tottenham boss wanted by European football heavyweights

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is wanted by La Liga giants Real Madrid, according to the Mirror.

The Mirror report that doubts have surfaced over the long-term future of Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, and that Pochettino tops the list to replace him. This is despite Zidane bringing the Champions League trophy to the Bernabeu just five months ago.

It comes as no surprise that the Argentine is attracting interest from some of the biggest clubs in the world. Since moving to White Hart Lane in 2014, he has transformed Spurs into genuine title contenders.

Prior to his arrival, Spurs were involved in a scrap for the top four every season, and more often than not missed out. Last campaign than came as close to winning the title as they have for years.

Pochettino’s side currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League table, trailing leaders Manchester City by three points. Despite looking unconvincing at times in the opening stages of this season, Spurs have managed to keep the pace with their rivals. The best is very much yet to come, which is a frightening thought.
