Mauricio Pochettino says he is open to managing in any of Europe’s top-five leagues as he prepares to return to the game.
The 48-year-old Argentinie remains without a club after being sacked by Tottenham last November and has given an interview to Spanish newspaper El Pais amid the close-season.
He has reportedly turned down the jobs at Benfica and Monaco in recent months and he insists he and his team are looking for a club that fits their philosophy of the game.
Asked if they are looking for a club that will demand trophies, Pochettino said: “It is to find a club, president or people who go hand-in-hand with the ideas we have and that we believe can bring you closer to success. When that offer arrives, we will all say yes.
“The Premier League has taken advantage in the commercial, the marketing [sense]. But La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga are also very powerful, and similar.
“We adapted well to the Premier League, but we are open to new challenges and opening another horizon would be enriching.”
