Mauricio Pochettino insists he's ready to return amid Man Utd links

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits he’s ready to return to club management after nearly a year out of the game.

The Argentine was sacked by Spurs 11 months ago and just four months after guiding the club to the Champions League final.

Pochettino is widely considered one of the finest coaches of his generation but he’s yet to accept a new job.

The 48-year-old has been heavily linked with taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United and the club showed interest in the Argentine in 2016 when Louis van Gaal left the club.

Pochettino was keen on taking over from Jose Mourinho in December 2018 but United hired Solskjaer following an impressive period in interim charge.

‘I am always ready to go again and be involved in the game,’ Pochettino said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

‘It’s not stress when you are working, it’s not stress going into the training round to prepare the match and to compete. 

‘I hope to go back soon so we can start again to work. I am looking forward to being back in the game. I love this game but it’s difficult. We are inside and working on doing things. That’s the reality’

Asked whether he would prefer that next job to be in England, Pochettino replied: ‘I need to wait for the right project. I will not close any door.

‘I always feel ready to be involved in the game. It is my passion not my job,” he said.

‘My energy is full and I love to be involved in the game. But at the same time I need to understand that it is a good moment to wait.

‘I learned when I was really young that football will dictate your way. I am waiting to feel which is the right project to take.’
