Mauricio Pochettino has said he would like to manage the England National side one day.
Mauricio was interviewed for a book by Sky Sports Spanish football pundit Guillem Balague,charting our title challenge last season, and which is seralised in The Mail, said he would “relish” the chance.
A then relative unknown in England, Mauricio arrived at Southampton in January 2013,but quickly established himself and is now one of the game’s leading managers.
He is quoted as saying: “If I were to be an international manager one day, I’d relish the opportunity to coach the England national team.
He continued:”I’ve heard that I’ve been considered for the job before, but I don’t know if there was any truth in it.”I’d be reunited with loads of familiar faces — Harry Kane, Danny Rose, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Adam Lallana.”
Since arriving on English shores , the majority of England’s recent debutants have been coached by Maurico, and he added: “Of the last 21, 17 have played under me. (speaking before Harry Winks made his debut against Lithuania)
“Eleven regulars in the England squad made their debuts under my stewardship.”The English are brave, honest and aggressive and the good ones want to add to their game.”
