Pochettino ready to return to work


Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admits he is ready to get straight back to work less than a fortnight after leaving the north London club.

The 47-year-old has been linked with a number of high profile jobs in recent days with Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Arsenal rumoured to have shown an interest in securing his services.

Speaking to Fox Argentina where he is currently enjoying a short break, the former Espanyol and Southampton boss, revealed that he has already had a number of "attractive" offers to return to management.

"There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on,” he said.

"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.

"It is my intention to return to manage 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 over here.

"But now I need to be calm for a few days and see what happens. I haven't had a lot of time to digest what has happened with me.

"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 ten 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."
