Mauricio Pochettino had done a wonderful job at Tottenham Hotspur. He reached the Champions League final last season losing only to Liverpool. He has always finished inside the top four in each of his full seasons at Tottenham.
But unfortunately, he was sacked and replaced by Jose Mourinho in November 2019 as Tottenham were languishing in the middle of the league table. Pochettino’s managerial talent has never been in doubt. He certainly has many offers on his table but he hasn’t taken up a job since then.
He has been linked to Newcastle United in recent times. Though they are not a top six Premier League club, Pochettino would be happy to take charge, if the project is right.
Pochettino said: “Yes I would (consider anything). Which clubs are the ‘top six’? It changes. Today Tottenham and Arsenal are not in the top six.”
“You need to respect all the clubs because they are working so hard. They are all spending and investing money and have a new strategy every season to try and be in the top six, the top eight or the top four.”
“Today you cannot underestimate any club. They all have the capacity to find a way to be competitive. The main thing is to be happy and be able to put our ideas into practice.”
“Football is not about budgets and money. Of course, they help, but for me it is about sticking with the human capital. After that, everything is possible and you can deal with anything.”
“When you put your objectives down and you start to work for them, you need to be creative and clever in the way you are going to design it. Sometimes, you need to play the same game with different cards.”
He further added: “The most important thing is we are ready and open to listen and see what happens. But at the moment, who knows when we are going to be back in football again.”
“Everyone can see the impact it [Coronavirus] is having on the economy and everyone in football is going to be affected. Companies, like football, that provide entertainment are really suffering.”
“It changes the mentality in everyone. I was very scared at the beginning. Health is the most important thing. Our responsibility is to understand the situation and have solidarity because we all participate in this business.”
“That is why it is good Germany starts to play although, of course, every country has a different reality.”
Bundesliga has resumed its season on 16th May and LaLiga is all set to resume on 8th June. Premier League has also placed ‘Project Restart’ into action. Let’s hope the glory days are back soon.
