I Regret My Words About Barcelona ,But My Dream Is Real Mardid- Pochettino

The former Spurs manager has revealed he never saw himself coaching the Catalans while their current president remains in charge.

Pochettino, who departed Tottenham in November last year, was asked about the Barca speculation.

“They didn’t offer me to coach Barca,” he told  Marca . “I didn’t see myself with [president Josep Maria] Bartomeu.

“I did eat with Ramon Planes because we have a friendship for many years, since 2009 when he signed for Espanyol.”

I was ironic then,” Pochettino reflected. “It was my first news conference at Tottenham and they asked me about the Barca rumours. Then I answered with my irony and I think I went too far, I said what I said.

“It sounds very nice for the radical Espanyol fan but I did not want to speak for that radical fan. Nor do I have to justify any statement because no one can question my love for Espanyol.”

Madrid attempted to hire Pochettino as Zinedine Zidane’s successor and asked about Los Blancos again, the 48-year-old said: “I don’t know if I’ll ever coach Madrid, but of course it’s my dream.

“If it’s not the best it’s one of the best clubs in the world. I’m no different, everyone has it on their dream list.
