Mauricio Pochettino admitted that he is not closing any doors as he waits for a potential return to football, insisting that he is open to any interesting managerial project.
The former Spurs boss has been out of work for almost a year since leaving North London and has been linked with a number high profile jobs across Europe during that time.
Speculation over the last couple of months have suggested that Manchester City and Manchester United are both looking at the Argentine as a possible candidate to take over, notably if Pep Guardiola does not sign a new contract at the Etihad stadium (The Daily Mirror).
Meanwhile, former Tottenham defender, Jan Vertonghen who worked with Pochettino for the entirety of his five and half year spell at Spurs admitted in a recent interview that he believes his former manager wants his next job to be in the Premier League (CBS Soccer’s Que Golazo podcast).
When Pochettino was asked whether he is looking for a project in England, he said during his appearance on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football (as relayed by Football.London): “I don’t know. I’m not going to close any doors.
“I got told when I was very, very young that football was going to dictate my way.
“Football is going to make the decision. I’m waiting to feel what is the right project for us. We are living in a crisis.
“Football is part of my life, but my energy is full and I love to be involved in the game, but at the same time I need to understand that I need to wait for the right project.”
