Mauricio Pochettino responds to Arsenal managerial speculations

With Mauricio Pochettino linked to the Arsenal managerial job, the former Tottenham Hotspur tactician has revealed that he will take time before settling on his next move.

Pochettino was sacked at Spurs after a poor start to the campaign despite guiding the club to the UEFA Champions League final last season where they lost out to Liverpool

Barely a month after his exit, the Argentine has been linked to Arsenal after the Gunners parted ways with Unai Emery following a string of poor results.

In an interview with TyC Sports, Pochettino was asked specifically about the vacant Arsenal job, "It’s important to have a moment of calm to lower the decibels and find the energy to take on a new project, and we’ll see where that is.

"I’m going to spend a few days here [in Rosario] with my family and friends, and then I’ll return to London next week."

The 47-year-old ruled out taking the Arsenal and Barcelona job back in 2018, "I am never going to be manager of Barcelona or Arsenal because I am so identified with Tottenham and Espanyol.

"I grew up in Newell’s Old Boys and will never manage Rosario Central. That is my decision because I prefer to work on my farm in Argentina than in some places."
