Mauricio Pochettino – who has a strong history with Espanyol – is now the number 1 candidate to become FC Barcelona manager, according to RAC1.
After Xavi says no, Bartomeu considers Poch as their new manager. His opinion is granted by Barcelona’s front office. Many players also welcome him.
Pochettino was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur in November 2019.
He once said he ‘prefers to go back to work farming in Argentina than coaching Barcelona’ years ago.
