Pochettino issues 'come get me' plea to Man Utd

Pochettino issues 'come and get me' plea to Manchester United amid talks of EPL return

February 11, 2020 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The former Tottenham Hotspur boss is keen on returning to management in the Premier League.

Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has outlined his ambition to return to management in the English Premier League once more. The 45-year-old Argentine's proclamation comes amid speculations of him potentially taking charge of Manchester United in the near future.

Barely six months after guiding Spurs to a historic runners-up finish in the 2019 UEFA Champions League, Pochettino was shown the exit door for the club's poor start in the 2019/2020 Premier League campaign. He was succeeded by former Manchester United and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho who has since taken the North London club to the sixth position with just four points separating them and European qualification slot.

Nevertheless, despite his absence from the dugout, Mauricio Pochettino still remains in high demand. The Argentine was recently named among the prospective managers to replace Ernesto Valverde at Barcelona before Los Blaugrana eventually opted for Quique Setien.

According to Sky Sports, the former Spurs boss has been a target for a host of clubs across European football. However, a return to the Premier League is what he is momentarily keen.

"To be honest, I would love to work in the Premier League," he said on the In The Pink podcast.

"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."

With the struggles of Manchester United still persisting, rumors have emerged that Pochettino could take over the baton from current Red Devils' boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should the club fail to clinch Champions League qualification. The former Spurs boss was a target for the Old Trafford outfit prior to the Norwegian's permanent appointment and there are claims that he still remains the atop the list of ideal coaching options.

On frequent speculations that link him with managerial offers, Pochettino little to add : "I was in Argentina, I was in Qatar, I was in Spain and I have Jesus [Perez, assistant manager to Pochettino at Spurs] who follows the news a little bit but I notice the rumours.

"All of the coaching staff accept that there are rumours. We deal with rumours naturally.

"The people need natural people, normal people and we don't say that we are unique with that but we are not actors and we don't do anything that we don't believe."
