The 47-years-old manager is still searching for his next assignment after having left Tottenham Hotspur earlier this season.
Mauricio Pochettino is arguably the greatest manager Tottenham Hotspur have ever had and after being away from the Premier League for just around three months, the argentine wants to return to England’s top tier football competition.
He had arrived at the White Hart Lane in May 2014 after spending one year with Southampton and the London based club did wonder under his management. Spurs finished inside top-4 regularly and reached the Uefa Champions League final last season.
Although, a scrappy start of the 2019-20 season, which saw them fall outside the top four, was enough for the club to sack him. The club appointed Jose Mourinho as his successor and since then Mauricio Pochettino has been linked to many clubs including Manchester United and Real Madrid.
During a podcast, Pochettino admitted that he still wants to return to the Premier League. He said, “To be honest, I would love to work in the Premier League. It’s going to be difficult, I know, and for now, it’s a moment to wait and we’ll see what happens.”
“It’s a moment of recovery, to think about yourself a little bit, and to be ready because in football always something can happen and you need to be ready. I’m ready and waiting for a new challenge. I have the belief and confidence that the next challenge will be fantastic.”, Pochettino remarked.
Spurs moved to their new stadium last year and the Argentinian also admitted that leaving White Hart Lane was a difficult moment for everyone at the club.
He said, “Everything I had to do was very scary in those moments. To destroy White Hart Lane and to build a new stadium, to play at Wembley and Milton Keynes, only football people know how difficult it was to deal with these situations.”
However, the former Spurs boss is very proud of everything he has achieved with the club during his fruitful tenure.
Pochettino said, “To apply a new philosophy and new ideas were very tough but I feel very proud of the success that we had and to take Tottenham to a different level. To play in the Champions League for three or four years and finish above Arsenal many times was a great legacy for us.”
“To win a title would be a great reward but for us that is the legacy, to have the club and the stadium at Tottenham. That is more than winning titles.”
Tottenham are currently sitting on the sixth position in the league table with 37 points and will face Aston Villa at the Villa Park in their next fixture.
