Mauricio Pochettino Teased About Becoming Manchester United Manager In Appearance On Sky Sports MNF
Sky Sports nearly went the whole Monday Night Football broadcast without a Mauricio Pochettino to Manchester United mention, but presenter David Jones squeezed one in right at the end.
The Argentine manager was in the studio alongside Jamie Carragher to analyse Leicester City's 4-1 win away at Leeds United.
Pochettino was incredibly insightful about his time playing under Marcelo Bielsa, how he learned English and his thoughts on how Jose Mourinho is doing with Spurs among other topics.
But of course, the burning question was whether the 48-year-old would be returning to management soon having been out of the game for nearly a year following his Spurs dismissal.
"I always feel ready to be involved in the game again," Pochettino said.
"I love football, it's my passion, it's my job.
"I am looking for work. I love the game. I'm working and doing things but it's not the same as being involved every single day and sharing with your players and staff. You miss that, that's the reality.
"It's not stressful when you are working. It's not stressful to go into the training ground, to prepare the team, to compete."

He said he would not be closing any doors when asked if his next job would be in the Premier League, but it was right at the end that there was a subtle mention of United.
When discussion turned to Pochettino's touchline attire, he stated his choice of style would depend on the club he was at - prompting host Jones to joke "It might be a team in red" before quickly moving on.
There was no reaction from the former Southampton boss, who was an absolute class act on MNF.
He gave some high praise to Brendan Rodgers in a post-match chat, whilst also thanking both Jones and Carragher for having him on.
Heavily linked with United, it remains to be seen if Pochettino will take the reins at Old Trafford in the future.
