Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is keen on a return to the English Premier League (EPL).
Speaking to Skysport, the former Argentine international said he was ready to take on a new challenge but would prefer to remain in the EPL.
“I love England. My idea is to keep living in London but at the same time I am open to different countries, to listen and see what happens.
“I am ready and we are a much better coaching staff now. We have learnt a lot from our experiences at Espanyol, Southampton and Tottenham. We have a lot of provide to the people that will trust in us in the future.”
Pochettino has been out of work since his Spurs’ sacking in November. According to media reports, the 48-year-old has been heavily linked with the Newcastle United job.
Pochettino began his managerial career at Espanyol in January 2009, remaining in the post for nearly four years.
He then managed in England, first with Southampton where he led them to an eighth-place finish in the 2013–14 season – their highest league position since 2002–03. Following one season at Southampton, he became the new manager of Tottenham.
The Argentine led Spurs to second and third place finishes in the EPL during his five-year reign in North London.
In 2019, Pochettino led North London to the Uefa Champions League final for the first time in the club’s history, ultimately falling 2-0 to Liverpool FC.
