Mauricio Pochettino has revealed his ‘dream’ to return to Tottenham after outlining his ambitions ‘to finish the work that we didn’t finish.’
Pochettino was sacked by Spurs in November following a disappointing start to the new season, less than six months after leading the side out in the final of the Champions League, bringing an end to an impressive five-year spell with the north London side.
The Argentine has been linked with becoming the new manager of Newcastle amid the club’s proposed takeover and whilst insisting he is ‘so motivated’ ahead of his ‘next project’, he has admitted he still harbours ambitions of a return to Tottenham in the future.
“It was an amazing journey that finished in the way that, of course, no one wants. But deeper in my chest, my soul, my heart – I am sure that we will cross [paths] again,” Pochettino told BT Sport.
“From the day that I left the club, my dream is to be back and to try to finish the work that we didn’t finish.
“We were so close to winning the right trophies, the Premier League and the Champions League. But we stopped and, of course, I am looking forward to moving on. I am so motivated for the next project.
“But, deep inside, I would like to be back one day because the club is special. The fans are so special.”
