Tottenham manager confirms he was once close to signing Messi

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, has admitted that he once came close to signing the worlds best footballer Lionel Messi.

Pochettino revealed that when he was manager at Spanish outfit Espanyol, they nearly signed the Argentine when he was just 17 years old saying,

“We were close at Espanyol to signing Lionel Messi.

“Messi was 17 years old (in the 2004/05 season), playing under-18s and was very close to signing for Espanyol. It was close but it never happened.

“In football it’s always ‘if, if, if’ but it’s about reality, it’s not about maybe what could have happened.”

Yes, if is a massive word in football.
