Has Pochettino Sent A Message To Man Utd?

Mauricio Pochettino has broken his silence on his Tottenham Hotspur sacking, and seemingly sent a message to clubs such as Manchester United in the process.

Click through the gallery above to see some managers who are linked with the United job.

The Argentine took a break from football after being sacked by Spurs in November last year.

However, he has now insisted that he is ready for a new challenge, and is keen to work in England again.

"I would love to work in the Premier League," he said, as quoted by the Daily Star.

"It's going to be difficult I know and, for now, it's a moment to wait and we'll see what happens.

"It's a moment of recovery, to think about yourself a little bit, and to be ready because in football always something can happen and you need to be ready.

"I'm ready and waiting for a new challenge. I have the belief and confidence that the next challenge will be fantastic."

His quotes have been interpreted by many as a come-and-get-me plea to Manchester United, whose current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come under pressure following the club's worst start to a season in 30 years.

Pochettino also opened up on his Spurs exit, explaining how difficult it was to manage the club while building a new stadium.

"Everything I had to do was very scary in those moments," he added.

"To destroy White Hart Lane and to build a new stadium, to play at Wembley and Milton Keynes, only football people know how difficult it was to deal with these situations.

"To apply a new philosophy and new ideas was very tough, but I feel very proud with the success we had and to take Tottenham to a different level. To play in the Champions League for three or four years and finish above Arsenal many times was a great legacy for us.

"To win a title would be a great reward, but for us that is the legacy, to have the club and the stadium at Tottenham. That is more than winning titles."
