- Mauricio Pochettino can’t wait to return to the Premier League
- Ex-Tottenham manager says he has an unfinished job with Spurs
- The 48-year-old was fired in November and replaced with Jose Mourinho
Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has declared that he wants to return to the Premier League and that he has an unfinished business with Spurs, Mirror reports.
The 48-year-old was quite impressive last season leading the LillyWhites to the Champions League final where they lost to Premier League rivals Liverpool.
Poch was also in charge as he led the team to third place and second place finish during the 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 league seasons respectively.
However, after a poor start to the current campaign, Pochettino was relieved of his duties by chairman Daniel Levy, replaced by Jose Mourinho.
And in the wake of a Saudi consortium takeover of Newcastle United, Pochettino has been heavily linked with a move to the St. James’ Park.
Poch has stated that he wants to manage Tottenham again, a club he had spent five years before he left in November 2019.
He told BTS sport: "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.
"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."
SunSport reports that the prospective new owners who are eyeing the manager are ready to pay him £19million a year to take charge of the club.
It was also gathered that if the deal for Poch fails, the club are ready to bring back former Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez.
The Magpies are also already in talks with the agents of Paris-Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani and Napoli forward Dries Mertens to bring them to England.
