JAKARTA, NNC - Real Madrid was stunned on Thursday when Zinedine Zidane announced his resignation, just days after he managed to deliver the club to their third consecutive victory in the Champions League.
Until now, Real Madrid has not decided who will be a substitute for Zidane. So far there are some candidates including Liverpool coach, Jurgen Kloop and Mauricio Pochettino, manager of Tottenham Hotspur.
Pochettino is a contender because of the consistency of Tottenham games in the last four seasons.
However, Real Madrid's move to woo Pochettino will receive opposition from Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy.
To find out who deserves to be a coach of Real Madrid, Spanish media, AS, did a poll to find out what the fans want.
Of the 12,000 voters, 41 percent chose Jurgen Klopp. The German coach beat Pochettino who earned 34 percent of the vote, Joachim Low 15 percent and Arsene Wenger nine percent.
Reported by Express, Saturday (6/2/2018) Pochettino said he would not rule out if Real Madrid was to contact him.
"When Madrid calls, you have to listen. But I am very happy with Tottenham Hotspur at the moment, I am enthusiastic about the Tottenham Hotspur project and we are fully focused now, we will see what happens," Pochettino said.
