Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino linked with Real Madrid

Basingstoke Gazette: Pochettino linked with Real Madrid Pochettino linked with Real Madrid

Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with Real Madrid in today's national press.

According to The Sun, he is on a three-man shortlist should Real decide to sack Carlo Ancelotti, along with Zinedine Zidane and Athletic Bilbao boss Ernesto Valverde.

The former Espanyol manager was linked with Tottenham two months ago, before Tim Sherwood replaced Andre Villas Boas.

Pochettino is under contract at Saints until the end of next season and reaffirmed his commitment to the club in the wake of Nicola Cortese's departure last month.

As highly as I rate MP, and as good a job as I think he has done, I cannot believe he would be a serious contender for such a large post. I think he would have to prove himself at a bigger club than ourselves, or win silverware before being able to consider himself in the frame.

If Southampton FC are serious about their future and success in the big time, they must at all cost keep this man at the helm, he is an absolute gem.
We have been through a host of managers over the years but none as knowledgeable of the modern game as Mauricio Pochettino who's energy and leadership is enjoyed by the payers, his youth policy is outstanding he is the green light to Saints success.

Love him or hate him NC was the continuity in the progression of the 'Southampton Way' vision. With him having gone it's imperative we keep MoPo for this continuity to continue as well as for the fact he is a brilliant manager. If he went as well there would be a risk of player departures and the domino effect.

Good post, Fritzer. Youth policy is possibly the main reason he would stay. Real Madrid is not a "Club" or "family" as we like to think of our beloved Saints - but an institution made up of different silos and interests. He would never have the same amount of influence over football affairs as he enjoys with us.

He will also do well to remember what happened to one of his predecessors (and former Manager) at Espanyol - Jose Antonio Camacho who resigned after 2 games in 2004 at Real.

I knew this would happen, 16 months ago he was in Spain twiddling his thumbs, probably bored to tears and wondering where his next job would be except talking to Cortese, Jose the Special one was Managing Real Madrid and winning the League and Cups but not loved by many Spaniards for being the "enemy" from Portugal so why didn't Real approach MoPo? They would of known he was Unemployed, why were they sitting on the fence waiting to see where he goes and how he improves? he probably wasn't on there Radar because he Managed Espanyol and in there eyes was a failure.

They are Real Madrid so every good Manager wants to work for them and if they do they must never be 2nd in the La Liga they must be top, never lose or draw a game only win and win the Copa del Rey (Cup of Kings) and be European Champions and have constant interference from The President and Chairman of the Club on tactics and dictate what Players come and go, so not much expectations or demands to Manage Real Madrid and never lose 3 games in 4 or it's a sacking.

Thankfully MoPo doesn't have that pressure, if he had been Managing Real in the bad run that Saints Team had recently he would of been sacked.

MoPo is on a mission, a very big challenge, he is in the Premiership for the first time in his life, he says it's the best League in the world, he will never be undermined or have interference about Players or tactics or anything connected to the Playing side, he loves the Club, the Players, Supporters and everyone loves him, I don't think he would apply for the job because if there is truth in this rumour that Real are ready to sack Ancellotti surely MoPo would never consider working for a Club that has a big reputation for hiring and firing, he wants security in his job or he could not concentrate 100% and fulfil his mission, if I was a betting man I would put £100 bet that he won't leave, the trouble is I do not have much luck with Gambling on the Lotteries but hopefully my luck will be in on this one COYR

I'll believe it when I see it, BUT ... who could possibly replace MoPo if he went? I can't think of another manager right now, that Saints could get anyway, who plays "the Southampton way". I wouldn't want some old school plonker coming in and having the side play long-ball football or something. I'd want continuity of style, as would the players who are used to and suit a particular system.

I am hoping that his experience with Espanyol will steer him clear of this one. While Real Madrid are a different class from most teams anywhere in the world, he had a front row seat for years of chaos and bitterness as their Galacticos came and went.

He's seen enough in Spain to hopefully not want to actually want to taste leadership in such a place. I suspect that whether or not we will fund a new push for the Champions League (that would be high risk/high reward for us, but the next logical step) will be what determines whether he joins someone like Real, or if he stays with us.

The other critical factor is whee Nicola turns up next.

Every time we've been this close to moving up into the highest heights of football, we haven't put the money in, and I can't blame the owners for that. Realistically it takes half a billion at least. But with financial fair play coming in, just as we are stabilizing in the top half of the premiership and our youth is ripening, maybe the stars are aligning for us to be able to make the next step.

If we do, and Nicola goes back to finance (possible?), perhaps MoPo can go on to be our best ever manager. He is certainly a top class manager, possibly up there with mourinho I reckon,.

He was linked with Real Madrid before he came to Saints. Also as I understand it he is on a two year contract which is not up until January next year.
All the speculation is just that speculation, same with Tottenham.
Pochettino came to Saints because he wanted to build his own team young players through the ranks and not just do it by buying in big stars all the time.
That does not fit Spurs or Madrid unless Pochettino has changed his principles.

What club would draw up a shortlist of managers they might be interested in should they not win a top trophy? Firstly you can't hypothesize on the negative but even if you did and you had an idea of who you might turn to...where has this list been leaked to and why?

There has to be so many stories that are fabricated by journalists to justify their jobs and agents to justify their fees should they secure more money for their clients.

They would of known he was Unemployed, why were they sitting on the fence waiting to see where he goes and how he improves? he probably wasn't on there Radar because he Managed Espanyol and in there eyes was a failure.

They are Real Madrid so every good Manager wants to work for them and if they do they must never be 2nd in the La Liga they must be top, never lose or draw a game only win and win the Copa del Rey (Cup of Kings) and be European Champions and have constant interference from The President and Chairman of the Club on tactics and dictate what Players come and go, so not much expectations or demands to Manage Real Madrid and never lose 3 games in 4 or it's a sacking.

Thankfully MoPo doesn't have that pressure, if he had been Managing Real in the bad run that Saints Team had recently he would of been sacked.

MoPo is on a mission, a very big challenge, he is in the Premiership for the first time in his life, he says it's the best League in the world, he will never be undermined or have interference about Players or tactics or anything connected to the Playing side, he loves the Club, the Players, Supporters and everyone loves him, I don't think he would apply for the job because if there is truth in this rumour that Real are ready to sack Ancellotti surely MoPo would never consider working for a Club that has a big reputation for hiring and firing, he wants security in his job or he could not concentrate 100% and fulfil his mission, if I was a betting man I would put £100 bet that he won't leave, the trouble is I do not have much luck with Gambling on the Lotteries but hopefully my luck will be in on this one COYR
I am hoping that his experience with Espanyol will steer him clear of this one. While Real Madrid are a different class from most teams anywhere in the world, he had a front row seat for years of chaos and bitterness as their Galacticos came and went.

He's seen enough in Spain to hopefully not want to actually want to taste leadership in such a place. I suspect that whether or not we will fund a new push for the Champions League (that would be high risk/high reward for us, but the next logical step) will be what determines whether he joins someone like Real, or if he stays with us.

The other critical factor is whee Nicola turns up next.

Every time we've been this close to moving up into the highest heights of football, we haven't put the money in, and I can't blame the owners for that. Realistically it takes half a billion at least. But with financial fair play coming in, just as we are stabilizing in the top half of the premiership and our youth is ripening, maybe the stars are aligning for us to be able to make the next step.

If we do, and Nicola goes back to finance (possible?), perhaps MoPo can go on to be our best ever manager. He is certainly a top class manager, possibly up there with mourinho I reckon,.
You said every time we have been this close to moving up the league…..

…too 8loody true, Ted bates and the club was offered a site for a new ground and turned it down when we were promoted in the 60's…

..Lawrie Mac was told by Keegan we were one player short of winning the league he was right and the ensuing fall out meant he left as well…

We built a ground that cannot compete with any of the big boys and spent more money on 32.500 capacity than Sunderland did building 47.000 and they used local more expensive steel (never understood how we paid more for less).

It would be the Southampton way to cöck this up as we are on the cusp…

Old news? Maybe. But when has that ever been an obstacle?

Start believing this rumour if and when it's published in Marca, which is usually the mouthpiece of Real Madrid.
I read I every day (I speak Spanish but you can get an English version now) and there's been absolutely nothing mentioned there.

My personal favourite OFITG quote was
Victor: Surely you can't change a lightbulb if you've only got one arm?
Mrs Warboys: You can if you've still got the receipt.

How's London? Must be a nightmare. I'm glad I don't commute that way these days.

On a more local level, I'm heading over to the UK in a couple of weeks and will have to drive up and down the Twyford Road a few times. Have they finished the bit which closed the road in Colden Common yet?

Shawford is not Shawford International. It's a small village between Winchester and Eastleigh

Peter, I think you've missed Alicesdad's ironic touch. Anyway, as I occasionally jump off their following my SNCF/Eurostar journey from Strasbourg, it's kinda international in a 'small village between Winchester and Eastleigh' sorta way.
