Pochettino: Before I die I want to manage Tottenham again

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said he would like another shot at managing the team within the next decade so he can try again to lead them to a trophy.

The former Argentina worldwide was in charge at Spurs for over five years, leading them to top-four Premier League finishes in all bar one of his full seasons at the helm, as well as reaching the final of the UEFA Champions League last year.

Per the reports, including this one from our partners at Sky Sports, Newcastle are willing to pay Pochettino $23.6 million a year which would make him the second-highest paid manager in the Premier League after Pep Guardiola.

And he also took the North London club to the 2019 Champions League final, ultimately falling 2-0 to Liverpool in the final in Madrid.

Now Pochettino, who is being linked with a Premier League return to Newcastle - assuming the club's £300million Saudi takeover goes through - is ready to return to management.

"But deep in my heart I am sure our paths will cross again".

The Premier League is still deciding whether to allow the deal to be completed following questions over human rights issues and television piracy claims.

But he has stated that he is hopeful to return to Spurs to lead the club to a title in future. For sure, from now since the day I left the club, my dream is to one day be back and to try and finish the work we didn't finish.

The Premier League is now suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic with no set timetable on if or when teams will resume playing out the 2019-20 season.

But we stopped and, of course, I am looking forward to moving on. People in football would love Bruce to get a chance but with new owners coming in, I always feel if he's not the person you want to manage your club then why stop what you want to do just to give Bruce £100-200m to spend?' "The fans are so special".

"I want to feel what it means to win one title with Tottenham because the fans are fantastic".
