Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino hopes to return to Newell’s Old Boys one day, preferably with Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
Pochettino began his career as a musician at Newell, where he emerged from the Argentine club’s youth system in 1989 before moving to the LaLiga group Espanyol in 1994.
The future of the Pochettino continues to be hypothesized after being fired from Tottenham in November – the former tactician of Parakeets and Southampton has been linked to the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid.
Pochettino, however, revealed his desire to return to Newell, along with his compatriot and six-time winner of the Messi Ballon d’Or – who also spent his youth playing for Newell.
“I hope to return to the club one day,” 48-year-old Pochettino told Radio del Plata. “I can still wait, preferably in 10 years. With [Lionel] Messi “.
Pochettino: “Lautaro is one of the best in the world”
Another Argentine, Lautaro Martínez, is also making headlines after its exploits for Serie A Inter Milan.
Martínez is reportedly attracting the interest of LaLiga Barça champions, who are looking for a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez.
“Lautaro Martínez is one of the best strikers in the world“Added Pochettino.
“It is not just for what it does now, but for what its potential means to move forward. If you start looking for hit men for big clubs, clearly his name must be there. “
