Former manager Pochettino “open” to managing a national team

Former Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino has told Sky Sports News he is “open” to a managerial return with a national team.

The 50-year-old has been out of work since the summer after being sacked by PSG in July and was linked with the Aston Villa job last month, before Unai Emery was appointed as Steven Gerrard’s replacement.

But the Argentine’s next managerial step could come internationally with the former Southampton boss revealing he would be interested in taking charge of a national team.

He exclusively told Sky Sports News in Qatar: “It wasn’t under my consideration to go [into international management] but now, yes I am open. Why not?

“Yes, of course we are still young, full of energy, and day-by-day I like the adrenaline to train, to be involved. Maybe the national team is a different job, but why not.

“If it’s not the next job, then maybe in the future.

“It’s not specific that all I want is Argentina. If another country, why not? For sure, that would be good also.”
