Pochettino Open To Managing European Clubs
Former Tottenham coach, Mauricio Pochettino says he plans to return to management and is open to listening to projects in Europe.
Naija News recalls The 47-year-old spent five-and-a-half years in charge of Spurs before he was sacked last month following a string of poor results and replaced by Jose Mourinho.
“There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on,” Pochettino told Fox Sports Argentina.
“It is my intention to return to manage in Europe.”
He added: “But now I need to be calm for a few days and see what happens.”
The Argentine has been linked with some major European clubs, including Arsenal who also recently sacked Unai Emery as their head coach.
Bayern Munich have also dismissed Niko Kovac as their manager, with some reports saying Pochettino might be taking over at the German club.
However, Pochettino himself has not revealed any particular club. Though open to a quick return to management, the Argentine revealed he will take the time gap created by his current unemployment to clear his head, return home and see family and friends.
“For the time being the most important thing is for me to clear my head after five-and-a-half incredible seasons with Tottenham.”
“My aim is to seek the ability to rebuild myself and get my self-motivation back.
“I haven’t had a lot of time to digest what has happened.
“My first decision was to come back to Argentina, return to my home and see family and friends. My best decision was to come to Argentina to switch off for 10 days.
“But I expect to return to Europe to make decisions on my future. At my age I don’t need a lot of time to recover. I am open to listen to projects put before me,” he added.
