Mauricio Pochettino has given Newcastle’s prospective new owners a huge boost by declaring he is ready for “the perfect project”.

A host of top clubs are also on alert after the 48-year-old Argentine, sacked by Spurs last November, became a free agent this week with his gardening leave at an end.

Pochettino said: “Always, you dream of the perfect club. The perfect project.

“I’m very open to waiting for the seduction of the project rather than the country. It’s about the club and of course the people, the human dimension.”

Mirror Sport revealed last month that should the Newcastle Saudi-backed takeover go through, they will be eyeing up an audacious move for the man that transformed Spurs from Europa League also-rans to Champions League regulars – and finalists.


But Pochettino has also been linked with Manchester United and Real Madrid.

He admitted he and his coaching staff would love to work in the Premier League again.

Pochettino said: “After six months, our tanks are completely full. We are so open. Of course we love England, and the Premier League. We feel very good here. We are still living here in London.

“I am not going to change (my feelings) now because I am not involved in the Premier League. Because I am no longer the Tottenham manager, I am not going to change my vision.

“I still think the Premier League is the best league in the world.

Pochettino left Tottenham earlier this season

“Of course we have suffered with everything that is going on, this unbelievable situation that we are living.

“There is not a manual that can tell you how you need to behave in this situation.

“But at the same time as the suffering, I have tried with my coaching staff to review everything that we did in the last seven years (including Southampton ) because we never had a break until now.

“It has been an amazing time to review everything, to start to organise again our ideas to plan the future and to try to compete better. To try to learn from our experience and of course looking forward for the next job.

“At the moment my idea is to stay here, live in London – me, myself and my family.”
