Pochettino opens up and opens door to making Newcastle United move!
Mauricio Pochettino has told the likes of Newcastle United that he is interested in making a return to the Premier League.
Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund is expected to buy the Magpies from Mike Ashley, and despite the deal not being completed yet, the club are starting to throw around their newly-acquired financial heft.
Pochettino is among those big names linked with a potential move to St James’ Park once the deal goes through, and he has opened up about a possible move to link-up with Newcastle.
“I love England. My idea is to keep living in London but at the same time I am open to different countries, to listen and see what happens.” HE TOLD SKY SPORTS when asked about joining Newcastle
“I need to behave in the way that I did on my first day as a coach. There are two things that are most important – one is the people, the fans that are behind every club. That is the structure that keeps alive all the companies that provide the entertainment that is football.
“The other is the ideas of the clubs. Every single club and company have different cultures, different philosophies, different ways of working. They all have different plans for success. To be successful at one club you need to win the Champions League or Premier League, but for others it is to finish in the top four or six.
“In the end, when we are waiting for a new offer, and we are capable of providing what a club expects from us, we are going to be very happy. Then the important thing is like what happened at Tottenham, that we create a unique philosophy together.
“When you sign a contract, when you already have an offer from some club and are so happy, the people that offer the new contract – chairman, sporting director – they are your best friend.
“You are in love. But you know, we feel very proud because after five and a half years, I keep the same relationship with Daniel and all the people that were involved. Okay, we all feel disappointed that it finished like this, but that is football.
” We will always have a great relationship and be friends forever. The decision to sack me, to leave the club, it is not going to change the memories that we made together. This period was incredible – I was so happy to have the opportunity to share with it everyone working at the club.”
