Mauricio Pochettino 'ready to return' to the Premier League
Mauricio Pochettino has announced he is ready to return to football management, and would ideally like to take a job in the Premier League.
The 48-year-old has been out of work since November 19, after he was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs were 14th in the table at the time after a poor start to the season, coming off the back of a campaign where Pochettino had led the north London club to the Champions League final.
Pochettino is now free to take any job after his gardening leave with Spurs ended this week.
Speaking to The Guardian, he revealed his plans to get back into management.
“We are looking for the next job. Our tanks are completely full.
“I’m very open to wait for the seduction of the project rather than the country.”
Pochettino has been linked with a number of jobs around Europe, including at Manchester United, Newcastle United and Real Madrid.
“We are so open. Of course, we love England and the Premier League.
“I still think the Premier League is the best league in the world.
“It can be my priority but I am not closed to move to a different country.”
