Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he has aspirations to manage in Italy one day, but not before achieving great success in North London.
Poch is one of the most sought-after managers in Europe, with Manchester United and Real Madrid both thought to be interested in the Argentine, with his time at Southampton and Spurs showing him to be a top coach.
However, as Pochettino prepares his side to face Inter Milan in Spurs‘ crucial UEFA Champions League tie at Wembley this evening, the 46-year-old has revealed that he would like to manage in Italy one day, with his great, great grandfather Michele being born in the Northen Italian town of Virle Piemonte.
“My contract expires in four-and-a-half years — if [Spurs chairman Daniel] Levy does not fire me first!” Pochettino said in his pre-match presser.
“Seriously, today I see myself here. I dream of winning a trophy with Tottenham, maybe the Premier League in our new stadium.
“In the future to also manage the Argentine team is my desire.
“The important thing is to be happy and I am right now. Me in Serie A? I have Italian origins and it would be a wonderful experience.”
