Next Spurs boss whoever loses Champions League Final?

The Champions league final takes place tomorrow evening between Atlético  Madrid and Real Madrid so will one of the two Head Coaches end up at Spurs?

Next Spurs boss whoever loses Champions League Final?

At first glance you would say it was nuts but there are factors at play here for both parties.

Back in April top London football agent Jonathan Hope of Revolution Sports Management revealed he had offered Atlético Madrid Head Coach Diego Simeone to a top London club at the beginning of the month.

“With club takeovers and transfers gearing up, we are in for one big window and with the World Cup approaching it’s only going to put more value on players.
“Staff turnarounds are going to be vital for clubs and I’ve proposed Diego Simeone and his Sporting Director Caminero to a top London club and they in turn have their own shortlist of players. With ongoing talks in regards to Benzema, Elneny and Basanta are huge for the Premier League."

He didn't say who a top London club were but it couldn't be Chelsea with José Mourinho there and there was never any chance of Arsene Wenger and Arsenal parting company regardless of any media speculation.

Atlético  has just won the Spanish League and now have the chance to add the Champions league against bitter local rivals Real. From there it's all downhill. He would have achieved everything he could achieve at Atlético  and staying would probably see him lose the La Liga title to either Barcelona or a smarting Real Madrid. Going out at the top makes perfect sense.

Newspaper reports both here and in Spain have questioned whether Carlo Ancelloti will remain at Real Madrid. There are suggestions that if he loses the Champions League final he will be gone with Florentino Pérez questioning his tenure.

Losing to bitter local rivals when you are the bigger club is unacceptable to the Madrid faithful. They crave a Champions League, losing it to Atlético  is a worse case scenario for them, it would be us losing it to Arsenal.

Real Madrid do turn over managers the way Daniel Levy does. Since Vincente del Bosque left in June 2003 there have been 11 managers.

Carlos Queiroz (Portuguese) - June 2003 to May 2004
José Antonio Camacho (Spanish) - May 2004 to September 2004
Mariano García Remón (Spanish) - September 2004 to December 2004
Vanderlei Luxemburgo (Brazilian) - December 2004 to December 2005
Juan Ramón López Caro (Spanish) -December 2005 to June 2006
Fabio Capello (Italian) - July 2006 to June 2007
Bernd Schuster (German) - July 2007 to December 2008
Juande Ramos (Spanish) -December 2008 to June 2009
Chilean Manuel Pellegrini - June 2009 to May 2010
José Mourinho (Portuguese) - May 2010 to June 2013
Carlo Ancelotti (Italian) - June 2013 to Present

It doesn't exactly make his position look safe does it and do you think president Florentino Pérez is going to take kindly to paying £100 million for a player to lose to your local rivals in a Champions League Final after losing La Liga to them as well?

A third place finish in the league and only a Copa Del Rey to show for a season is not good enough in Madrid. After that final, won by a brilliant Gareth Bale goal, the president praised the players , fans, Barcelona, everyone except Ancelloti who it is said he has been moaning about behind the scenes.

The stories of Daniel Levy waiting until after the final to see what happens and the prospect of Carlo Ancelloti then coming to Tottenham are not as daft as they sound in that context.

If Real Madrid lose Carlo Ancelloti could be sacked and Diego Simeone could be seeking a new challenge. If Atlético lose Ancelloti could stay and then Simeone has a decision to make.
