"I am open to hearing projects ahead of me": Mauricio Pochettino suggests a quick return to the administration, while the dismissed Tottenham boss looks at major European clubs while speaking for the first time since taking a break in Argentina
- Mauricio Pochettino suggested that he could make a quick return to administration
- Pochettino was fired by Tottenham and replaced by Jose Mourinho last month
- He was tied to the jobs of Manchester United, Arsenal and Bayern recently.
- The 47-year-old admitted that he is open to listening to all projects presented to him.
Mauricio Pochettino hinted that he might be interested in a quick return to management after his departure from Tottenham, admitting that he is "open" to listen to any project presented to him.
Pochettino was sacked by Tottenham last month after a terrible run that left him 14th in the Premier League – 11 points behind Champions League places.
He was quickly replaced by Jose Mourinho, who has won all three games in charge so far, while Pochettino has returned to his native Argentina to relax.
Mauricio Pochettino hinted that he might be interested in a quick return to administration
Pochettino was fired by Tottenham last month after a disappointing start to the season.
He is among the candidates to take over Manchester United if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is fired.
The 47-year-old is linked to a sensational return north of London following the resignation of Unai Emery at Arsenal, while he is also being named as the next manager of Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
Speaking of his upcoming work, Pochettino told Fox Sports in Argentina: “There are many attractive clubs and projects for me to take on.
& # 39; But for now, the most important thing is to clear your head after five incredible seasons at Tottenham.
“My goal is to seek the ability to compose myself and regain my self-motivation.
& # 39; It is my intention to re-administer in Europe. It is hard for me to imagine a project in Argentina. However, for the sake of my family, I would not refuse to work here.
“But now I need to be calm for a few days and see what happens. I didn't have much time to digest what happened to me.
& # 39; My first decision was to go back to Argentina, back to my house and see family and friends. But I hope to return to Europe to make decisions about my future.
& # 39; My best decision was to come to Argentina to hang up for 10 days. At my age, I don't need much time to recover. I am open to listening to projects placed before me.
Pochettino returned to Argentina and visited his former club Newell & # 39; s Old Boys
The Argentine spent five years as a player at the club before moving to Europe in 1994.
Pochettino has been a Tottenham manager since 2014, and after five and a half years in charge, he is making the most of an extended rest.
However, since his resignation, he is already linked to many major clubs in Europe.
Among them is United, who had previously targeted Pochettino. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's future looks increasingly uncertain and the club could trigger the former striker if they lose to Tottenham and Manchester City this week.
Arsenal are also looking for a new permanent coach following their decision to leave Emery last week. The question remains whether Pochettino would move to Spurs rivals, who seem increasingly likely to lose in the top four.
Bayern Munich are also in need of a new boss after parting ways with Niko Kovac recently. Hansi Flick is currently in charge of the first team's affairs, but his inexperience may lead them to consider Pochettino.
The uneven shape of Real Madrid put Zinedine Zidane into the line of fire. His huge summer spending also put more pressure on him, but his recent resurgence – not to be missed since October 19 – suppressed fears about a possible looting.
Pochettino returned to Argentina and visited his old club Newell's Old Boys over the weekend. The Argentine spent five years as a player at the club before moving to Europe in 1994.
