MAURICIO POCHETTINO has put Manchester United and Arsenal on red alert after claiming he is ready to return to management straight away.
The Argentine was sacked by Tottenham after a poor start to the season – but is still held in high regard after the magnificent job he did over his first five years at White Hart Lane.
Pochettino told Fox Sports Argentina: “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 ten days.
“At my age I don't need a lot of time to recover. I am open to listen to projects put before me.”
