Pochettino moves closer to Barca job






Football


Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is the 'prime candidate' to replace Quique Setien at Barcelona.


Their current boss is set to be given the heave-ho after their horrendous 8-2 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich on Friday night.



The Catalans giants looked lost in the display, which saw them suffered their third worst loss in history.



Pochettino, according to reports in Spain, had dinner with Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu last week, while he was spoken to when the job last came up in January.



Thierry Henry and Ronald Koeman were also spoken too, while club legend Xavi turned down the chance.



Pochettino had previously said he wouldn't want to take charge at the Camp Nou due to his ties with rivals Espanyol but has since admitted he was wrong to say that, paving the way for him to take a job there in the future.
