Mauricio Pochettino says he does not want a prolonged period out of the game.
Fired by Tottenham despite reaching a Champions League final, Mauricio Pochettino said he is adapting to the growing instability of management as he eyes a new club and a return to the dugout.
After top-four finishes in four consecutive seasons – and reaching the 2019 European final and despite spending nothing on players last season – Pochettino was dismissed with Tottenham 14th in the Premier League. It was a ruthless decision by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy in a bid to halt the decline, reflecting how hard it is to stay, as long as Pochettino, in any managerial job. Unai Emery followed Pochettino out of north London rival Arsenal 10 days later. Reduced job security does open up opportunities for out-of-work coaches like Pochettino.
“We know very well how our job is,” Pochettino said. “In the last 10 years you see a little how it’s changed and … it’s unbelievable. But that is our job and we accept that.”
