Argentino was thinking of replacing Portuguese in the Merengue team, but he never had the opportunity. Meanwhile, Mourinho replaced Pochettino after leaving Tottenham
Mauricio Pochettino revealed that he was thinking of replacing José Mourinho at Real Madrid, in an interview with “The Guardian”. The Argentine who led Espanyol between 2009 and 2013 always wanted to be on the bench at the Santiago Bernabéu, but after the Portuguese left the Merengue team, Carlo Ancelotti, Rafa Benítez, Zidane, Lopetegui and Solari had chances in the main team. In addition, “Special One” is Tottenham’s current coach and has just replaced the young 48-year-old coach.

– Via Mourinho at Real and thought: It may be that someday he will occupy the position at Real Madrid, but how life changes. He took my place at Tottenham. Unbelievable, isn’t it? We’ve known each other for a long time. I am very happy that you are replacing me at Tottenham.
Pochettino is currently without a club, but due to the good work in the London team between 2014 and 2019, the coach’s name is quoted on several teams, but mainly Newcastle. The English team hopes to build a strong and competitive squad in the coming years from Arab investments and see the Argentine as the ideal commander to put the club on the path of conquests.
