  • Arsene Wenger is considering his next role

Pochettino, who recently signed a new five-year deal at Tottenham, has emerged as the favoured candidate of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

But whether the 48-year-old Italian is an adequate replacement for the taciturn Zidane, and the right choice for such a demanding club, is up for debate.

From the media's perspective, a book launch coinciding with a hot news line and topic, of which the writer or individual being written about is part of the story, is an open goal, can't miss opportunity in football terms.

"When a name is associated with Real Madrid, the expectations are huge". Life is very short and we need to spend the day thinking to enjoy life, not thinking too much and worrying about what is going to happen tomorrow.

The Tottenham manager is among the favourites to succeed Zinedine Zidane at the Santiago Bernabeu after the Frenchman sensationally quit on Thursday, having won three consecutive Champions League titles.

Zidane held a press conference and shocked the football world by announcing that he will be stepping down as manager of the La Liga giants after just three years in charge.


"My first years in Portugal and Spain, although it took me time, I was able to master the language and people respected me a bit more for that", Toshack said.

However, the Argentine went on to distance himself from the rumours, saying: "I have just signed a long contract with Tottenham and I am very happy here".

Pochettino said he could understand the pressure that the Frenchman had been under.

Bale, 28, scored twice off the bench in Real's 3-1 win over Liverpool, sealing his side's 13th Champions League title. The Guardian also weighs in on Chelsea's search for a new manager, suggesting the Blues have told Maurizio Sarri they will not pay his Napoli release clause, thereby ending speculations he could be the man to replace Conte.

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". I'm sure they will find a strong successor but that is not for me to worry about.
