Jose Mourinho would hesitate in taking the Real Madrid job because of his interest in becoming Tottenham Hotspur manager, according to The Sun.
Real’s Zinedine Zidane and Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino have seen ‘The Special One’ linked to their positions following poor starts to the season.
The Sun understands that Mourinho is confident he would be offered a return to Madrid, where he spent three years as manager from 2010-2013, should Zidane be sacked from his own second spell at the Bernabeu.
However, the Portuguese has told friends that he might not accept their advances and instead hold out for a call from Spurs, the report adds.
The Telegraph wrote last week that Pochettino could be fired if we lose away to London rivals West Ham United after the internatinal break.
Whether Mourinho would be a suitable replacement splits fans. But, I must say, it is nice to be first choice out of Real Madrid and Spurs, for a change.
Take that; Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Christian Eriksen.
