Pochettino won't wait for Real Madrid and will join top club very soon, says Poyet

Real Madrid may have missed their chance to land Mauricio Pochettino, Gus Poyet has said after lining up alongside the former Tottenham manager at the launch of LaLiga TV – a platform which will push Spanish top-flight action back to a UK audience.

The Blancos went back to their former head coach Zinedine Zidane when replacing Santiago Solari, which leaves Pochettino looking for work elsewhere and generating talk of interest from the likes of Manchester United and Bayern Munich.

Pochettino was quick to leave the building via an emergency exit following a Q&A session back East London in which he was quizzed on his future and stated that he would be interested in La Liga and Premier League posts.
