Mauricio Pochettino has said he is placing all his focus on the present and not paying attention to speculation that he may be offered a chance to coach Real Madrid next season.
“Football will take me where football wants to,” Pochettino said. “[Former Argentina international] Jorge Grifa, who was like a second father to me, would tell me, ‘Don’t think too much, enjoy the present, be professional and responsible and let football take you where it wants to.'”
Pochettino also said Real’s ups and downs this season are a part of football.
“That’s football everywhere, not just in Spain but in England,” the 45-year-old said. “And each time is worse.”
Spurs, fifth in the Premier League standings, will take on Juventus in the Champions League round of 16 next month.
Pochetttino is not the only Tottenham man being talked about by Real supporters. England international Harry Kane reportedly tops the list of players that Real fans want for next season.
“It’s not just this season, but since he appeared, Harry immediately started to prove the quality he has,” Pochettino said. “In the three years he has been at Tottenham, he has broken all the records.”
