Tottenham Boss Mauricio Pochettino Discusses Real Madrid Rumours


Embattled Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said on Friday that he would resign immediately if he felt he was no longer able to get through to his players at the crisis-hit club.

Pressure on Zidane has continued to mount, particularly after Wednesday's shock Copa del Rey defeat to Leganes.

And Pochettino has added fuel to the fire that has been linking with the post at the Santiago Bernabeu by saying that he will never manage Barcelona.

The Daily Mail has alleged that sources close to Real have stated that Pochettino's camp has already been contacted by Real about the potential vacancy, and the Argentine is "keen" on hearing what they have to say. "I am working like I am going to be here forever", he said.
