Ex-Spurs boss Pochettino hints at next job

Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that he will manage in either La Liga or the Premier League when he returns to work, per Sky Sports.

What’s he said?

The Argentine has been out of work since his sacking by Tottenham Hotspur in November.

Speaking at the launch of a La Liga TV channel, Pochettino was asked about his future, having previously been linked with the jobs at both Arsenal and Barcelona.

He said: “For me, I was so lucky to start my career as a manager at Espanyol in Barcelona and then to come to the Premier League to learn a different language and culture and I am a better person today.

“I have more knowledge and had a great experience. The Premier League is the Premier League.

“Football was born here in England but I think La Liga has amazing football and amazing coaches.

“England and Spain are the two best leagues in the world.”

Spurs fans dreading it

Spurs fans will surely be genuinely dreading the possibility of Pochettino standing in a Premier League technical area again.

The Argentine was in charge for over five years and oversaw two title challenges as well as a run to the Champions League final.

There was widespread panic among the Spurs fanbase when he was linked with Arsenal – a job he claimed he would have been “open” to – and he is unlikely to settle for a job in mid-table.

As such, if he is to stay in England, he will surely be taking over a direct rival of his former employers, perhaps with revenge on his mind.

Spurs fans will surely be hoping he heads to Spain.
