Ex-Chelsea defender Sinclair: Hazard needs Real Madrid move

Zinedine Zidane

Perez has made little secret of his desire to recruit Pochettino at some point in the near future, so the stories suggesting the Argentine tactician as favourite for the post were entirely predictable, even though Pochettino signed a new long-term contract with Spurs just last week.

Pochettino said taking on the Real Madrid job would not require bravery.

Toshack, 69, managed Real Madrid twice, leading them to the La Liga title in 1989.

In an era where journalists' access to footballers and managers is becoming more and more hard given the ever-growing powers of club media channels, you could say fair play to Pochettino for taking questions in a one-on-one and press conference environment.

But whether the easy-going, fan-hugging German fits the bill at Europe's most successful club remains to be seen.

The Capitals also fell behind 1-0 to the Pittsburgh Penguins - their playoff nemesis - in the second round. Part of that was obviously because of the curiosity of seeing Vegas - and not Winnipeg - in the final.

But Pochettino has yet to win a trophy in any of his coaching stints, at Espanyol (2009-2012), Southampton (2013-2014) or Tottenham.

"So maybe Zidane probably saw it all flaring up and thought this was a good time to get out, because there are some things that need sorting out at Madrid", said Toshack.

The 68-year-old Frenchman has already expressed his desire to continue his managerial career after ending his 22-year spell at Arsenal.

Sat alongside Real president Florentino Pérez, the World Cup victor said he felt he had taken the club as far as he could: "I have taken the decision to not continue into the next season".

He told Goal: "Chelsea will be doing everything they can to keep him there for at least another year, but Real Madrid were linked heavily last year and could come back in for him again".

"We can't be thinking too much and worrying about what is happening tomorrow".

"I have a five-year deal with Tottenham and I'm very happy at the club". I think our project is so exciting.

Germany boss Joachim Low meanwhile has ruled himself out of the running to become the next Real manager.

MARCA report that early talks have taken place between the former Argentina defender and Madrid, and while Spurs hastened to make clear that Pochettino has no buyout clause in his newly signed contract, few clubs have deeper pockets than Real Madrid.
