MAURICIO POCHETTINO admits he would “love” to get another job managing in the Premier League again.

The Argentine, 47, was axed as Tottenham boss in November – just five months after taking the club to the Champions League final.

Jose Mourinho came in as his replacement the following morning, while Pochettino remains out of a managerial post.

He has done some media work – including in Qatar – and appeared as a guest at a LaLiga TV event in London.

But the former Espanyol boss is still looking to get back in the dugout sooner rather than later.

He continues to be linked with taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United and would seemingly prefer to stay in England rather than move abroad again.

Reports over the weekend suggested Poch still has his eyes on the Old Trafford gig and that he has told friends he wants to resume his career in the summer.

However, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain may all be looking for a new boss come the summer and would surely be in touch with Pochettino to try and lure him to the continent.

But Poch told the In The Pink podcast: “To be honest, I would love to work in the Premier League.

“It’s going to be difficult, I know, and for now it’s a moment to wait and we’ll see what happens.

“It’s a moment of recovery, to think about yourself a little bit, and to be ready because in football always something can happen and you need to be ready.

“I’m ready and waiting for a new challenge. I have the belief and confidence that the next challenge will be fantastic.”

And after six years in England – firstly with Southampton before switching to Spurs in 2014 – Poch has understandably become attached to life in the Premier League.

He added: “If we move to Europe, we are going to miss England.”
