Pochettino is the first candidate to succeed Zidane in the future

Real Madrid is still putting Mauricio Pochettino in his plans to take over the team's training if Zinedine Zidane is sacked in the future, Spanish newspaper As reported.

Real Madrid's start to the season was not good under the French coach in his second term, but the team regained its balance in recent games, and managed to share Barcelona at the top of the Spanish league rankings, and improve his position significantly in the Champions League.

Despite the recent development of Real Madrid, doubts remain about the team due to the fluctuating level, and if the results worsen during the next phase, and Zidane failure to maintain the same performance he offers recently, it is very possible to be dismissed, and according to the Madrid newspaper, Pochettino will be the first choice Club president Florentino Pérez.

Real Madrid tried to sign Pochettino twice

The newspaper explained in its report that Real Madrid wanted to contract with the Argentine coach twice in the last two years, the first time was when Zinedine Zidane decided to step down from his post at the end of the 2017-2018 season and achieve the Champions League title.

Pérez tried to negotiate with Pochettino to convince him to succeed Zizou, but he had renewed his contract with Spurs, and the contract included a penalty clause if it was terminated within the first two years, and therefore it did not work and eventually was contracted with Jolene Lopetegui.

The second time, occurred after Santiago Solari was dismissed before the end of last season, Pochettino then rejected the offer of Real Madrid because he did not want to go through this experience in the middle of the season, and preferred to wait until the summer, but Perez succeeded in convincing Zidane to return, and the Argentine coach lost his second chance, but from It is unlikely that he will get a third chance in the next phase.
