Arsenal, Man Utd alerted as Pochettino announces: I'll listen to offers

Mauricio Pochettino wants a return to football immediately.

The Argentine was sacked by Tottenham over a fortnight ago after five-and-a-half years at the club.

Arsenal are without a manager and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure at Manchester United, and Pochettino says he has returned to his homeland in order to decide his next move.

Asked about his future plans by Fox Sports, Pochettino said: "There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on.

"But, for the time being, the most important thing is for me to clear my head after five-and-a-half incredible seasons with Tottenham.

"My aim is to seek the ability to rebuild myself and get my self-motivation back.

"It is my intention to return to manage in Europe. It is hard for me to imagine a project in Argentina. However for the sake of my family, I would not refuse to work over here.

"But now I need to be calm for a few days and see what happens. I haven't had a lot of time to digest what has happened with me.

"My first decision was to come back to Argentina, return to my home and see family and friends. But I expect to return to Europe to make decisions on my future.

"My best decision was to come to Argentina to switch off for 10 days.

"At my age I don't need a lot of time to recover. I am open to listen to projects put before me."
