Mauricio Pochettino insists that he is ready to work again and that he is looking forward to being back in management.
The 48-year old Argentine has not been employed since he was sacked by Tottenham a year ago but after serving a period of gardening leave and recharging his batteries, he is keen to return to the fray once more.
He has been linked with a host of top jobs including Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United, and has, in effect issued an open calling card to boards of leading clubs with his latest comments.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, in particular, might be feeling the hot breath of Pochettino on his neck. He has been heavily criticised by fans, former players,, and pundits after their latest Premier League defeat at home to Arsenal on Sunday, with the Norwegian accused of tactical naivety, whilst there have also been suggestions of a lack of motivation in the squad.
