Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was coy on speculation of a future move to Real Madrid stating: “Football will take me where it wants to.”
The 45-year-old has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu with Zinedine Zidane’s future coming under increasing scrutiny and the Argentine widely praised for his work at Spurs.
“Football will bring me to where football wants me to be,” Pochettino told Onda Cero.
“Jorge Grifa (a former Argentina international player) told me to focus on the present, to maintain your professionalism and let things happen, and he was like a second father to me.
“In football you always have to endure highs and lows whether you are managing in England or in Spain, so it is normal for me to go through this.”
Pochettino previously coached in Spain with Espanyol and guided Spurs to a win and a draw against the European champions in the Champions League group stage this season.
