Mauricio Pochettino has hinted he could be interested in a quick return to management following his departure from Tottenham, admitting he is "open" to listening to any projects put before him.

As has since been one of the talking points across the European media, Argentine tactician Pochettino was somewhat-surprisingly relieved of his duties at Spurs two weeks ago.

One surprise potential destination to have been floated for Poch, meanwhile, has been Arsenal.

Arsenal are also on the hunt for a new permanent manager after the decision to axe Emery last week.

Pochettino had been manager of Tottenham since 2014, and after a five-and-a-half year spell in charge, he is making the most of an extended rest.

Pochettino himself, though, does not appear to be in any major rush to make a decision on his future.

Former Spurs boss Pochettino switched between formations towards the end of his stint in north London, with Christian Eriksen - who is running down his contract with the club - starting seven Premier League games so far this season, much to the confusion of Tottenham supporters.

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

He said: "For now, it's a return to Europe".

"People have more reasons to love me if they like my work, but the fans are behind the team and they see us working hard to get to a position in the table that is more suitable to the talent of this squad", added the coach.

"I felt the boys felt a bit exhausted after playing a high-intensity game, but we had the chance to score the fourth goals, but then in the Premier League the game is always alive".

The former Spurs frontman told the Daily Mail of a current star with 177 Tottenham goals to his name: "I don't see why he would leave".

Harry Wilson's late double skewed the scoreline and gave Bournemouth hope of an unlikely comeback, but Spurs were not to be denied back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since April. I am open to listen to projects put before me'.
