Worring times for Tottenham as Pochettino talks up his ‘dream’ job

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking about his chances of taking up his ‘dream’ job in the near future.

Spurs have had an indifferent start to the new season, with just two wins from their opening six Premier League games and were also held to a 2-2 draw at Olympiakos in the Champions League despite being two goals up.

Pochettino’s men currently sit seventh in the table with eight points and surrendered another lead as they were beaten 2-1 at Leicester on Saturday.

The Argentinean has cut a frustrated figure ever since the Champions League final loss to Liverpool last June, and has spoken frequently about the club’s policy on transfers.

He had been linked with the managerial vacancy at Real Madrid before Zinedine Zidane stepped back in, while continued links to Manchester United refuse to go away.

But speaking to the Argentine media, Pochettino has made it clear that his ‘dream’ would be to manage the Argentina national team.

He said, in comments picked up by TyC Sports: “The dream is always to be able to train the Argentine national team one day, as an Argentine that is indisputable, your country, your shirt, your flag… That is always a priority.

“What is clear is that the circumstances have to occur in a natural way so that it can happen. Today is difficult because my future and my circumstances have me in England.

“But personally, it will always be a dream, or one will always wait for the moment to have the opportunity to train the national team of his country.”
