Brazil expects Pochettino to leave Tottenham

Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Alan Brazil believes that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will be tempted to Real Madrid at the end of the season.

Pochettino is believed to be the Spanish club’s number one target to replace Zinedine Zidane, who is currently under pressure at the Bernabeu.

Zidane has won the Champions League title in each of his two seasons with the club, but Los Blancos are currently 19 points off Barcelona in La Liga following a poor run of form.

It is understood that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is considering Zidane’s future, and Pochettino is the club’s number one target to take the reigns.

Brazil, who represented Tottenham between 1983 and 1984, believes that Pochettino will ultimately decide to make the move to the Bernabeu.

Brazil said on talkSPORT:

“I think he goes, me.”

Pochettino started his managerial career in Spain with Espanyol – spending three years in charge of the Catalan outfit before leaving for Southampton.

The 45-year-old has been in charge of Tottenham since the summer of 2014.
