Mauricio Pochettino is high on Real Madrid’s wishlist

Mauricio Pochettino could replace Carlo Ancelotti if the Brazilian leaves the club.

Mauricio Pochettino, the former Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain manager, is reportedly high on Real Madrid’s wishlist to replace Carlo Ancelotti if he leaves the club. The Times Sport reported that Real Madrid sees Pochettino as a potential successor to Ancelotti, who has come under pressure following a series of inconsistent performances from the team.

Pochettino, who played for Espanyol and Paris Saint-Germain during his playing career, has made a name for himself as a manager in recent years. He led Tottenham to the Champions League final in 2019, where they narrowly lost to Liverpool. He then moved to Paris Saint-Germain in 2020, where he won the French Cup and led the team to the Champions League semi-finals in his first season in charge.

Real Madrid is known for its high standards and demanding fans, and Pochettino’s track record of success in European competition makes him an attractive option for the club. He also has experience managing big-name players and handling the pressure that comes with managing at the highest level.

However, it remains to be seen whether Pochettino would be interested in leaving the job. He has spoken in the past about his desire to stay at the club for the long term and build a legacy there.
