Pochettino seeking 'new horizons'

Mauricio Pochettino admits he would be interested in ‘a new challenge and new horizons’ outside the Premier League, as Juventus are still an option.

The former Tottenham Hotspur manager has long been linked with a move to Turin and is ready for his next step.

“The Premier League has commercial advantages, but the Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1 and Bundesliga are also powerful,” he told El Pais newspaper in Spain.

“I suit the Premier League, but am open to a new challenge and working towards new horizons could improve me as a coach.

“People act as if coaches want a project, but the truth is we just want to find a club and President whose ideas can gradually take us towards success.

“When that offer arrives, then I will say yes.”

Maurizio Sarri won the Scudetto, but only with a one-point advantage over Inter, losing both the Italian Super Cup and Coppa Italia Finals.

It’s reported that if Juventus don’t get past Lyon in the Champions League Round of 16, the club could still seek a new coach.
