Solskjaer under pressure following Pochettino’s latest comments

Former Totteham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has declared his intention to return to management amid links to the Manchester United job.

The Argentine was sacked by Spurs almost a year ago after guiding the North London club to their first ever Champions League final. He is widely considered as one of the best coaches in world football.

The 48-year-old has been constantly linked with the United job before the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

With the team currently struggling after our mixed start to the new season, the Argentine’s name has popped up as a potential candidate to replace Solskjaer.

“I am always ready to go again and be involved in the game,” Pochettino said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

“It’s not stress when you are working, it’s not stress going into the training round to prepare the match and to compete.

“I hope to go back soon so we can start again to work. I am looking forward to being back in the game. I love this game but it’s difficult. We are inside and working on doing things. That’s the reality”

Asked whether he would prefer that next job to be in England, Pochettino replied: “I need to wait for the right project. I will not close any door.

“I always feel ready to be involved in the game. It is my passion not my job.

“My energy is full and I love to be involved in the game. But at the same time I need to understand that it is a good moment to wait.

“I learned when I was really young that football will dictate your way. I am waiting to feel which is the right project to take.”
