Mauricio Pochettino is open to the idea of becoming the next Arsenal head coach.
That’s according to the Manchester Evening News , as the former Tottenham Hotspur boss plots his next month after being sacked by the north London outfit and replaced by Jose Mourinho a couple of weeks ago.
Whilst the report states that Pochettino wants to become Manchester United manager, it’s also claimed that he is already under consideration to succeed Unai Emery at the Emirates Stadium.
Furthermore, it’s being reported that Pochetino is believed to not have ruled out taking over at Arsenal despite his Spurs ties.
The Argentine has recently put out a teasing message to Arsenal and Man United fans in regards to his future.
“There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on,” said Pochettino, speaking to Fox Sports in Argentina. “But, for the time being, the most important thing is for me to clear my head after five-and-a-half incredible seasons with Tottenham.
“My aim is to seek the ability to rebuild myself and get my self-motivation back.
“It is my intention to return to manage in Europe. It is hard for me to imagine a project in Argentina. However, for the sake of my family, I would not refuse to work over here.
“But now I need to be calm for a few days and see what happens. I haven’t had a lot of time to digest what has happened with me.
“My first decision was to come back to Argentina, return to my home and see family and friends. But I expect to return to Europe to make decisions on my future.
“My best decision was to come to Argentina to switch off for 10 days.
“At my age I don’t need a lot of time to recover. I am open to listen to projects put before me.”
