Mauricio Pochettino has given a clue as to where he will be coaching next.

Pochettino is a very sought after manager even though his time at Tottenham Hotspur was brought to an abrupt end.

He is continually linked with the Manchester United job.

While perhaps the only thing that stopped him getting the Barcelona job was his ties to Catalonian rivals Espanyol.

There has been plenty of talk about France and Italy.

With AC Milan prone to change, and failure in the Champions League likely to cost Thomas Tuchel his job at PSG.

There is also Bayern Munich too, with Hansi Frick only there until the end of the season. But a recent fall out with director Hasan Salihamidzic may see him leave sooner rather than later.

In an interview reported by Goal, Pochettino has spoken about his future, and hints that there are more than likely only two potential destinations.

He said:

“For me, I was so lucky to start my career as a manager at Espanyol in Barcelona.”

“Then to come here to the Premier League to England, to learn English and different cultures.”

“Of course football was born here in England but La Liga has amazing football and amazing coaches.”

“As a coach, and as with Gustavo [Poyet], we always try to be in the best place. I think England and Spain are the two best leagues in the world.”
