Given by the press as Newcastle’s main target in the event of a successful takeover by a Saudi investment fund, Argentine coach Mauricio Pochettino said Thursday that he dreamed of a return to Tottenham, which sacked him in November .
“It was an incredible adventure that ended like no one wanted it to end”, he explained in an interview with BT Sport, about his 5 years and some on the bench of Spurs.
“But deep in my heart, I’m sure our paths will cross again. From the day I left the club, my dream was to come back one day and try to finish the work we failed to finish. We were so close to winning the Premier League and the Champions League, “ he stressed.
Arriving from Southampton in 2014, Pochettino led the Spurs to the C1 final in 2019, and in 2017 Tottenham finished second in the championship, seven points behind rival Chelsea.
“It may be five years from now, maybe ten years from now, but before I die, I want to train Tottenham”, added the 48-year-old technician.
