I am ready to return to management – Pochettino

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton Tottenham sign £25m Sergio Reguilon Tottenham re-signs Bale on loan Former Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, says he is ready to return to management quickly, showing no interest in an extended break from the game. The Argentine had led Spurs to the UEFA Champions League final last season and remains one of the most sought-after coaches in the game. But he was sacked by the north London club last month and replaced by Jose Mourinho. Yet, while talking in an interview of his “love” for Tottenham, he did not rule out a return to Spurs at some stage in his career. The Argentine, in his first comments to journalists since his exit from Spurs, also said there was no club he would not talk to —— even Arsenal. Pochettino said that after spending time with his parents and family in Argentina he is now getting prepared for whatever his next challenge will be. “After five and a half years in Tottenham it is a weird time for us. But at the same time very relaxed, very happy when you look backwards. And of course obviously in life you need to move on,” he said. Pochettino told a small group of reporters in Qatar ahead of the Club World Cup final between Liverpool and Flamengo that he was recharging his batteries. He added that he was aiming to “be ready if something arrives and of course (I am) open to listen”. Asked about a possible return to the English Premier League, Pochettino said: “Of course I love the Premier League, I love the English fans. “I think it is one of the best leagues in the world and I think for any manager it is so exciting to be involved in the Premier League. “But we will see, there is not only Premier League, there are different leagues in the world, different clubs that can be exciting, to give you a challenge that is maybe different. “Now, it is true that we haven’t had time to think too much of the future, we have been thinking only of ourselves, to recover and be ready, because that is the key point, to be ready when something happens and to be more prepared to give to a club that is interested in you, the best of you.” Tottenham’s arch rivals Arsenal had sacked their Spanish manager Unai Emery last month, prompting some media speculation about whether Pochettino could be a target for them. The Gunners, however, appointed Mikel Arteta on Friday, a man to whom Pochettino said he felt like a “big brother”. Pochettino, who once said he could never work for FC Barcelona having been with their local rivals Espanyol, did not directly answer whether he had received any approach from Arsenal. Neither did he say whether any other club had approached him. Yet he said he was not going to rule out talking to any club, and suggested he would have listened to the Gunners. His exit from Spurs, along with his long-time assistant Jesus Perez, has not, however, diminished his affection for the club.Tags: Jose MourinhoMauricio PochettinoTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more
