Zidane quits Real Madrid; United rake in big bucks despite Europa loss
Updated: 4th October 2023
Manager Zinedine Zidane has called it quits at the Santiago Bernabeu for the second time in his coaching career with Real Madrid.
United rake in big bucks despite Europa loss
The Red Devils commenced their European season as they played in the group stage of the Champions League, in which they earned €23.35million (£16.4m).
The Group H that involved games with Paris Saint-Germain, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehi, ensured the English an initial amount of €15.25m (£10.7m) for just taking part in the pool.
Despite exiting the competition at the Group stage, the club are likely to pocket €20m (£14.4m) from TV revenue when market pools are worked out.
However, their dominance in the Europa League where they made it till the finals has led to more financial bounties as the base fee for the competition landed them with €2.92m (£2.51m).
Their last-32 victory over Real Sociedad saw them win €0.5m (£0.43m) and their last-16 win over AC Milan added another €1.1m (£0.94m) to the kitty.
That went upto €1.5m (£1.29m) when they coasted to victory over Granada in the quarter finals and raked in a further €2.4m (£2.07m) when they pummeled Roma in the semi-finals.
Pochettino pining for return to Spurs
This is barely 18 months after being sacked by Spurs owner Daniel Levy.
Following his exit from London, the Argentine signed a short-term 18-month deal with PSG that included an option to extend his stay till the summer of 2022.
Since joining the Parisienne giants, Pochettino has gone on to win two trophies, Coupe de France and Trophee des champions but shockingly relented the first spot to Lille in the all-important domestic Ligue 1 after a run of seven title wins on the trot starting 2012-13.
Citing ‘unfinished business' at Tottenham as the reason, the forty nine-year-old manager could arrive in England sooner than expectations.
