There could be trouble brewing at Tottenham as Real Madrid are coming for one of our best, and we are not talking about players. A report from Sport claims that the La Liga giants have targetted Mauricio Pochettino as a possible replacement for Zinedine Zidane as the Frenchman is still unsure about his future at the Bernabeu.

The Frenchman might have had a wonderful first season with Los Galacticos but he has found himself under immense pressure as Barcelona are running away with the La Liga title.

Real are 16 points behind the Catalan giants and that could be one reason why they want to replace Zidane. The first manager on the list is German national team manager Joachim Low but Real know that it will not be easy to pry him away from the World champions so they are setting their sights on Pochettino.

One reason why Pochettino might end up joining the side is that he is a former Espanyol man and there is no chance he would be joining Barcelona. In fact, he might join the Madrid based club just to turn the tables on the Catalan giants as they seem to be doing really well.

No Guarantees Of Zidane’s Future

Real are known for their hire-fire policy and even though Zidane is a legend in football, should he not win a major trophy this season, he could be out of a job.

“Zinedine Zidane isn’t a player at Real Madrid anymore. That Zidane no longer exists,” he told France Football (h/t Goal).

“Now it’s down to Zinedine Zidane the coach to carve out a career. I’m not protected by what I’ve done as a player at this club.

“I know that one day it [the coach’s job] will come to an end at Real Madrid, so I make the most of it and I do everything I can to be successful.

“I say to myself, ‘if I’ve got 10 days left here, then I’m going to live those 10 days to the max; if it’s six months, I’ll live those six months to the max’. I don’t think beyond that. I know I won’t stay [in the job] for 10 years.”

For now, Pochettino is a Spurs man but that may not be the case in a couple of years, unfortunately. The Argentine is one of the best young managers in the world and if he keeps making our team better, he could move to one of the bigger clubs in the world.

Hopefully, in a couple of years, we will have created a sort of dynasty that picks up trophies, which should keep the former Southampton manager with us for a number of years and pry away the interest of the likes of Real or even a Juventus.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.

(Video) Watch Tottenham’s new stadium’s artificial pitch lights functioning as work continues

Tottenham stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching towards completion as another new time-lapse video of our home was put up on YouTube.

The latest video shows a lot of pavement work being done outside. And the most interesting aspect of the clip is of our pitch.

Cranes can be seen operating on the surface inside the stadium. Once the vehicles leave, our artificial lighting can be seen moving about and illuminating the surface.

There is a lot of work still to be done on the exteriors and Tottenham haven’t communicated as to when our new home would be completed.

We had reported that Spurs quashed suggestions that the venue would not be ready before 2019.

Another allegation related to drug and alcohol abuse by the workers in the stadium was also refuted.

Tottenham had earlier claimed that the venue would be complete by 15th September, which was our clash against Liverpool.

Although a lot of effort is being taken to ensure the home is finished as quickly as possible, it is frustrating to see the stadium not looking close to completion as the pitch hasn’t been installed yet.

The planning for the stadium seems way off at the moment but hopefully, the team can produce a string of wins and take our minds off this delayed timeline.
