5.- Mauricio Pochettino

The Argentine manager had his shot to coach Los Blancos twice already, but he missed both opportunities for different reasons.

The first time Real Madrid got interested in signing him was right after Zinedine Zidane resigned last year, Mauricio explained that he didn’t want to leave Daniel Levy hanging.

The Spurs coach had just signed a new contract and he considers himself a man of his word.

In recent months, there has been a lot of speculation about Pochettino possibly taking on the job if Zidane gets sacked but we believe he missed his train.

For starters, Real Madrid only signs coaches with a successful record and Pochettino still hasn’t won a title as a manager. His train is gone and he is not going to catch it.
