Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that he wants a quick return to management following his departure from Tottenham Hotspur last month.
The 47-year-old was relieved of his duties at the North London club earlier this month following a period of five years at the helm.
Since his dismissal, Pochettino has travelled to his native Argentina for some time off and was seen watching his hometown club Newell's Old Boys in action on Sunday.
Speaking on the subject of his future, Pochettino told Fox Sports Argentina: "There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on. But, for the time being, the most important thing is for me to clear my head after five-and-a-half incredible seasons with Tottenham.
"My aim is to seek the ability to rebuild myself and get my self-motivation back. It is my intention to return to manage in Europe. It is hard for me to imagine a project in Argentina. However for the sake of my family, I would not refuse to work over here.
"But now I need to be calm for a few days and see what happens. I haven't had a lot of time to digest what has happened with me. My first decision was to come back to Argentina, return to my home and see family and friends. But I expect to return to Europe to make decisions on my future. My best decision was to come to Argentina to switch off for ten days. At my age I don't need a lot of time to recover. I am open to listen to projects put before me."
Moreover, reports have claimed that Arsenal view Pochettino as a 'credible option' for the permanent manager role.body check tags ::
