Argentine managerMauricio Pochettino has revealed he is determined to return as manager of Tottenham Hotspur.
Pochettino left Spurs in November after five years at the club, having transformed Spurs into one of the country’s top sides.
Pochettino, 48, led Spurs to a second place and third place finish in the Premier League during his reign.
And he also took the North London club to the 2019 Champions League final, ultimately falling 2-0 to Liverpool in the final in Madrid.
However, after a poor start to the current campaign, Pochettino was sacked and replaced by Jose Mourinho.
Now Pochettino, who is being linked with a Premier League return to Newcastle – assuming the club’s £300million Saudi takeover goes through – is ready to return to management.
But he has stated that he is hopeful to return to Spurs to lead the club to a title in future.
“It was an amazing journey that finished in the way that, of course, no one wants. But deeper in my chest, my soul, my heart – I am sure that we will cross [paths] again,” Pochettino said on BT Sport.
“From the day that I left the club, my dream is to be back and to try to finish the work that we didn’t finish.
“We were so close to winning the right trophies. The Premier League and the Champions League.
“But we stopped and, of course, I am looking forward to move on and I am so motivated for the next project.
“But deep inside I would like to be back one day because the club is special. The fans are so special.
“Maybe in five years, maybe in 10 years, and now I’m going to conspire with the universe and to throw out the idea that before I die, I want to manage Tottenham again and try if possible to win one title – because I want to feel what it means to win one title with Tottenham.
“The fans are amazing and the love we received was amazing and that [would be] a good opportunity to pay back all the love they showed us from day one.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
