Mauricio Pochettino has opened the door into management and is ready to return instantly to the Premier League. The former Spurs manager is reportedly being linked with a move to Manchester United and Arsenal.

Pochettino got sacked by the North London outfit two weeks ago after a string of disappointing results, and was replaced immediately by Jose Mourinho. However, he still remains the favorite to take over either at Old Trafford or the Emirates.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in-charge at Old Trafford and the Manchester United board have made it clear that they have no intention of sacking him despite sitting 9th on the table. Arsenal, on the contrary are looking for a new manager after the dismissal of Unai Emery on Friday.


Freddie Ljungberg is the interim manager until a replacement is found, and Pochettino is a genuine contender for the managerial spot at the Emirates despite having previously claimed that he wouldn’t make the move.

“There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on,” said Pochettino, speaking to Fox Sports in Argentina.

“But, 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. But I expect to return to Europe to make decisions on my future.

“My best decision was to come to Argentina to switch off for 10 days.

“At my age I don’t need a lot of time to recover. I am open to listen to projects put before me.”

Bayern Munich are also reportedly interested in the Argentine Manager, however, have Erik Ten Hag set as their first preference.

This Job declaration by Pochettino has made things clear on his managerial return and its just a matter of time, before we see him again in the Premier League with either Manchester United or Arsenal.
