Pochettino: “When Madrid call, you listen”

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits ‘when Real Madrid call you, you have to listen’ but insisted he was ‘happy’ in North London.

The Argentine has emerged as the number one candidate to replace Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu, but recently signed a new five-year deal with Spurs.

“When Real Madrid call you, you have to listen,” Pochettino told reporters, as The Guardian cite El Confidencial.

“Although in this case it doesn’t depend on me. I have just signed a long contract with Tottenham and I am very happy here.

“I am happy at Tottenham because they let me work and we are growing together. Right now I want to focus on planning for next season and keep out of all the things that are being said. There will be lots of rumours, lots of things said, but I have no news from Real Madrid.

“I’m working very comfortably at Tottenham and it’s my obligation to focus on that. I do not want, nor can I, comment on Zidane going but what he has done is undoubtedly very big: no one has won three Champions Leagues in a row recently.”
