Former Argentinian player Ossie Ardiles, who spent many years working in the UK, revealed that compatriot Pochettino was interested in the proposal from Newcastle United.
“When Pochettino talked about Newcastle, I knew many people involved had made an attractive offer for him,” Ardiles told the Mirror. ” he was invited by Newcastle, and on Tuesday, Pochettino told me he is ready to return to coaching.”
Coach Pochettino was interested in the offer from Newcastle United
Earlier this month, British media revealed Mauricio Pochettino was the number one name Newcastle had to target, once the club completed the process of changing owners. The new leadership team is willing to pay the Argentinian strategist a salary of up to 21.8 million euros/year.
This salary is nearly double the salary of Pochettino when he was working at Tottenham (10.3 million euros/year) and helped him become the 2nd highest-paid coach in the Premier League, the 3rd highest in the world.
“As far as I can see, Pochettino is ready to become Newcastle’s manager, what he needs is just a little more time,” the former player once played for Tottenham.
Ardiles’ revelations are worth the reference because he spent 10 years at Tottenham and had a period leading Newcastle and many English clubs. If you go to Newcastle, Pochettino’s income is only inferior to Atletico coach Diego Simeone – the highest earner in the world receiving 40.5 million euros/year (statistics from L’Equipe) and Pep Guardiola with 23 million euros/year.
The acquisition of Newcastle for $ 375 million from the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman is going smoothly. The new owners of the Premier League club also list many blockbusters that can be detonated in the near future.
Mundo Deportivo has revealed that if he became Newcastle manager, Pochettino wants to recruit 3 players including Gareth Bale, Arturo Vidal, and Philippe Coutinho.
Newcastle player does not want to work with he yet
The players want to continue to be with current coach Steve Bruce, instead of former Tottenham strategist.
British media revealed that Newcastle’s current staging team expressed 100% support to coach Bruce. The move by Newcastle players is said to be in response to news that new Tyneside club owners want Mauricio Pochettino
Recently, the media revealed that Pochettino is the name that Newcastle will target once the club has completed the process of changing owners. The new leadership team is willing to pay the Argentinian strategist a salary of up to 19 million pounds, making him the 2nd highest-paid coach in the Premier League and the 3rd highest in the world.
Pochettino is a more famous name than Bruce. However, many Newcastle players express their admiration for the work that coach Bruce has done this season.
Under the guidance of the former MU player, Newcastle is performing well when ranked 13th in the Premier League rankings of 2019/20 despite not being invested strongly.
Initially, the Daily Mail revealed coach Bruce remained in place for at least the rest of this season. Newcastle was then thought to want to bring him to easily attract bigger stars.
For his part, Coach Pochettino is said to be quite interested in the new project from Newcastle United. He wants Newcastle to recruit the top three players including Gareth Bale, Arturo Vidal, and Philippe Coutinho.
