Odds tumble on Mauricio Pochettino taking over at Real Madrid

Odds tumble on Mauricio Pochettino taking over at Real Madrid

The Spurs boss is now as short as 7/2 to take over at the Bernabeu.

Mauricio Pochettino has been dramatically slashed from 25/1 this morning to as short as 7/2 to be appointed the next permanent Real Madrid manager.

The Spanish giants have had their worst start to a season for seventeen years under ex-Spain boss Julen Lopetugui, whose position became untenable following a 5-1 defeat to rivals Barcelona.

Whilst Spurs have actually had one of their best starts to a league season, winning seven of their first three games, Pochettino has admitted to feeling the worst he ever has at the club.

The Argentine seems to have become disillusioned with Tottenham’s stadium issues, inactivity in the transfer market and lack of focus on winning titles, so Real Madrid could be the perfect escape should he feel it is time to leave.

Santiago Solari is the man who has been appointed interim manager at the Bernabeu and will have first crack at securing the position on a permanent basis. The former Galactico is the odds-on favourite at 8/11.

Earlier in the day, it looked as though Antonio Conte was nailed on, but he has since drifted from 1/7 all the way out to 3/1.

Other names touted are Roberto Martinez (16/1), Arsene Wenger (12/1) and Guti (25/1).

Oddschecker spokesman, George Elek: ‘Pochettino is a manager held in high regard around the globe. and it appears he is starting to conclude Tottenham cannot match his ambitions.

'He has, however, always laughed off questions about moves away from the North London club, so I wouldn’t be worrying too much if i was a Spurs fan. Yet, anyway.’
