Mauricio Pochettino admits he would love to manage in Premier League again

Mauricio Pochettino has again intimated that he would like to return to the English Premier League, calling it the "best league in the world".

Pochettino has been constantly linked with jobs since he left Spurs, most recently the hot seats at Atletico Madrid and Manchester United.

It remains to be seen where his future lies but surely these comments would put the likes of United and City potentially on red alert.

"To be honest, I would love to work in the Premier League". 'It's going to be hard, and for now it's a moment to wait and see what happens.

Pochettino confessed to being aware of speculation surrounding him: 'I was in Argentina, I was in Qatar, I was in Spain and I have Jesus [Perez, assistant manager to Pochettino at Spurs] who follows the news a little bit but I notice the rumours, ' he said.

Klopp will need his entire squad fit and ready to challenge on all fronts but rushing Mane back will not be an option.

"Of course I feel very proud about everything I achieved at Tottenham and when I analyse my time there, plenty of positive things happened", Pochettino told Sky Sports.

Spurs finished in the top four of the Premier League in each of the past four seasons under Pochettino before he was sacked earlier this term following a poor run of results.

"Everything I had to do was very scary in those moments", he said. "That is more than winning titles".

Pochettino spent five years in charge of Tottenham and sealed Champions League qualification in each of his last four seasons in north London.

"Before, English football was closed". "I took over at a crucial moment for the club".

"The latest information I have is that he has a great interest in being Manchester United's manager and he and his people are targeting the Manchester United job and believe they can convince the Glazers".

"When I first arrived at Southampton the players would say you have to play long balls in behind the full-backs and press, the approach was always like this".

The defender, who turned 22 last month, has started just one Premier League match this season and his development has stalled.

They were fuelled even more on Tuesday night when Pochettino was spotted watching Brentford versus Leeds United, and was in close proximity to Woodward's new PR man Neil Ashton. I have to see if I deserve a new contract.
