Gus Poyet has claimed that Real Madrid could still be the club that could hamper Tottenham Hotspur’s progression.

The former Spurs midfielder believes that the Spanish giants could still tempt Mauricio Pochettino to swap the Premier League for La Liga.

The 46-year-old has been heavily linked with European champions Real, who sacked Julen Lopetegui in October after a 5-1 defeat by Barcelona.

Santiago Solari has since been handed the reigns, but this has not stopped the rumour mill from linking Pochettino with a potential switch to the Bernabéu.

Pochettino and his backroom staff signed a new five-year contract with the club during the summer amid intense speculation that Madrid were keen on his services following the resignation of Zinedine Zidane.

Poyet, who played for Spurs between 2001 and 2004 fears that if Pochettino was to make the move to Spain that he could possibly also take star striker Harry Kane with him and significantly dent Tottenham’s impressive progression over the past few years.

“It’s one club [who could get Pochettino]. Real Madrid is the problem. For Harry Kane as well”, Poyet said on beIN Sports Soccer Saturday (15/12).

“If Mauricio Pochettino went to Real Madrid, I wouldn’t be surprised if Harry Kane follows him.

“And then we’ve got a different Spurs.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. The twats in the media and pundits alike are so eager to belittle Spurs. They cant wait to run to the nearest has been for his opinion. In this instance it’s Gus Poyet. I have no doubt that come next Summer, the Pochettino and all of Spurs outstanding players will be subject to speculation and highly touted to leave the club for the usual suspects. Teenager Oliver Skipp who played very well at the weekend against Burnley will also be on the list to leave because his playing time in the first team will be limited and you can bet that an article will emerge stating that he has to leave the club in order to play regular first team football.
    The same nonsense was circulated last Summer about Pochettino and Co., minus Skipp.

  2. Gus Poyet–you were a shit player shit manager. You should shut your mouth and give your arse a rest. You try and create news with no credibility just to get your name in the news. F—k off.
