Mauricio Pochettino is up and ready for a new challenge but insists he would be more inclined to pick up a new job in the English Premier League rather than elsewhere.
The Argentine boss says he “would love” a return to the Premier League.
Pochettino has been without a job since he was sacked by North London outfit, Tottenham in November following a disappointing start to the campaign, despite taking them to the finals of the Champions League last term.
He has been linked with Manchester United in the past with other top European clubs like Bayern Munich and Real Madrid also showing their interest in his services.
The 47-year-old says he is more than interested in managing an English side as he waits for his new challenge to come by.
“To be honest, I would love to work in the Premier League,” he told 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.”
The Argentine gaffer spent five years at the helm of affairs at Tottenham, helping the Lilywhites to Champions League qualification in each of those last four years.
He also guided the North London club to a second place finish in the Premier League and Carabao Cup in 2016-17 and 2014-15 respectively asides reaching the Champions League final last time out.
“Of course I feel very proud about everything I achieved at Tottenham and when I analyse my time there, plenty of positive things happened,” Pochettino added.
