Mauricio Pochettino has again admitted that he wants a return to the Premier League.
The Argentine, 47, was fired from Tottenham in November, just five months after Spurs appeared in the Champions League final.
But it’s bound to be in high demand this summer when he tries to return to coaching.
Pochettino returned to his native Argentina and Spain with his family during his time out, while he also spent a period in Qatar in December as a guest of the country’s Supreme Committee as they prepare for the 2022 World Cup.
Last month he spoke at a La Liga television event in London and continues to be connected with jobs in both England and Europe.
And now, after Mirror Sport revealed over the weekend that he still has hopes of being Manchester United’s next manager, Pochettino once again spoke of his future – effectively launching an appeal to pick me up for the Premier League clubs. .
“To be honest, I’d like to work in the Premier League,” he said In the Rosa podcast. “It will be difficult, I know, and for now it is a moment of waiting and we will see what happens.
“It is a moment of recovery, think a little about yourself and be ready because something can always happen in football and you must be ready.
“I am ready and waiting for a new challenge. I have the conviction and the confidence that the next challenge will be fantastic.”
Pochettino spent over six years in England, initially arriving in Southampton in January 2013.
He and his loyal coaching staff spent 18 months on the south coast of St Mary’s before moving to White Hart Lane.
Bayern Munich, currently under the leadership of Hansi Flick, has been considered a potential overseas destination, as well as Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid – should separate from Thomas Tuchel or Diego Simeone respectively.
For their part, it is known that Bayern have reservations to completely change culture at the Allianz Arena by bringing a full staff of coaches overseas.
But moving potentially elsewhere, Pochettino admits: “If we move to Europe, we will miss England”.
United, if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fails to guarantee European football during this period, it will continue to appear as the most likely destination of the Pochettino’s Premier League.
