The Premier League is hard terrain for gaffers attempting to garner consistent results. In the past two weeks alone, Mauricio Pochettino was sacked as the manager of Tottenham Hotspur while Unai Emery likewise was terminated as the top name at Arsenal.

As of such, all eyes are on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has had a similar run of games as the two sacked bosses, if not worse.

What cannot be denied is that Pochettino is a highly sought after name, evident in the extent to which he was linked to the Red Devils a few months ago.

Now, the Argentine tactician has opened up about his potential future plans.

Speaking to Fox Sports, Pochettino reveals: “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.”

He goes on to add: “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.”

The most definitive statement regarding his next destination was provided when he stated: “At my age, I don’t need a lot of time to recover. I am open to listen to projects put before me.”

There have been strong speculations linking him back to Premier League clubs with Arsenal and Man Utd the obvious destinations.

While the Gunners are currently in the market for a new top manager, United are yet to make the call on Solskjaer’s future.
