The Argentine coach, who has been without a club since leaving Tottenham last November, gave an interview where he confessed that he was happy to be replaced by Mourinho, in addition to affirming that he dreamed of managing Real Madrid when the Portuguese was the ‘Merengue’ coach. .
Mauricio Pocchetino left his mark on Tottenham. With the ‘Spurs’, the Argentine coach managed to reach the Champions League final in the 2019/19 season, in addition to forming a project that transformed the London club into a front-line team. After a bad start to the 2019/20 season, the leadership decided to do without its services.
Pocchetino granted an interview to the English newspaper The Guardian, where he made a confession regarding a step he believed he would take in his career at some point. “I saw Mourinho and I said to him: maybe one day he will take your place at Real Madrid, but look how life changes. He has taken my place at Tottenham. Incredible, huh? ”.
As the coach himself said, since he was fired from his position as coach of Tottenham, the position ended up being occupied by José Mourinho, about whom he admits feeling very happy because he has been his successor. In this sense, Pocchetino affirmed that “with José we knew each other a long time ago. I am very happy that he is replacing me at Tottenham. ”
After all this long period of time away from the benches, the name of Mauricio Pocchetino has sounded strongly as the possible coach of the Newcaslte, an English club that is in a process of purchase by the Arab royal family and that seeks to form a project competitive based on millions and millions of dollars.
