Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has declared that he won’t be coaching Barcelona even if he’s given the opportunity to.

Pochettino played for Espanyol and also managed Barca’s rivals.

Due to his association with Espanyol, Pochettino has said he won’t be managing Barca if offered the opportunity.

“I always said that the only clubs I would never manage are Arsenal, because they are considered the worst enemy for Tottenham, and Barcelona, because of Espanyol,” he stated, as per BBC Sport.

The Argentine spent 9 years at Espanyol as a player, and then had a 3.5-year spell as a head coach.
