Mauricio Pochettino snubs Real Madrid yet again

Real Madrid have been dealt with another massive blow in their managerial hunt after Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino turned down the job at Santiago Bernabeu yet again. Real Madrid are having a tough time trying to convince the Argentine to take charge at the Bernabeu despite club president Florentino Perez’s best efforts.

As per reports in England, Pochettino turned down the latest offer from Real Madrid which would see him as one of the top-earning coaches in the world with a proposed contract of 17 million euros annually. Pochettino seems to be keen on staying at Tottenham and finish what he stated at Spurs.

Reports claim that Pochettino turned down the Madrid project because he fears that there will be constant interference of the board in his work. The Argentine had earlier turned down the Los Blancos in the summer when they approached him to replace the Zinedine Zidane.

The Argentine was yet again the go-to man to fill the void left by Julen Lopetegui, but with him turning down the offer, Perez will be forced to continue with Santiago Solari on a provisional basis. Real Madrid will have to wait until the summer to try their luck once again, but with Pochettino renewing his contract in London until 2023, it looks like he is in it for the long haul.
