Would Pochettino be the next Barcelona Manager?

Mauricio Pochettino - Favourite to take charge as Newcastle Manager

Barcelona are looking to appoint a new manager for the next season, and Mauricio Pochettino is thought to be one of the favourites to land the job.

The former Tottenham manager is out of a job right now, and he has been linked with several high profile clubs already.

It will be interesting to see who comes in to replace Setien next season.

Barcelona have had a very poor season this year and they failed to win the League or the Champions League. Furthermore, the humiliation against Bayern Munich was too much to bear for the fans and the club hierarchy.

Pochetttino did a remarkable job at Tottenham and he helped rebuild the club. He will have to do a similar job at Barcelona if he is appointed as their manager.

The Argentine manager’s attacking football should help Barcelona’s players, and he could be the ideal man for the Spanish giants next season.

As per reports the senior players at Barcelona and not too keen on pochettino being appointed as the club’s manager.

It will be interesting to see if the board can satisfy the team with their choice of appointment in the coming weeks.

The likes of Xavi and Henry have been linked with the job as well, and it remains to be seen whether the two former Barcelona players are given the opportunity to lead the team next season.

Meanwhile, Messi has informed the club that he will leave if the club hierarchy fails to present him with an ambitious plan this summer.

 The managerial appointment could prove to be a crucial decision in the coming months for Barcelona.
