Mauricio Pochettino continues without team after having left the Tottenham does already several months. In an interview conceded to the newspaper 'El País', has matizado the controversial statements that pronounced in 2018, when it ensured that "before training to the Barça would go me to my farm of Argentina". Curiously, now it ensures that it would not go back to pronounce them, or at least no in this pejorative tone.

"It is necessary to explain it well. I was in Barcelona this year and found me with Bartomeu in a bar. We greet us because we carried the children to the same school and were five minutes of cháchara. This generated a rumour that did to jump alarms because there were more teams that wanted to us, and when they asked me wanted to resolve it of drastic form; I did not want to be missing to the respect to the Barcelona", clears Pochettino.

"Can say the things of different form. The Espanyol has done me a name. But I am not arrogant and did not like me do a statement like that. Perhaps now it would not do it because in the life never knows what will happen", says also, leaving the open door to direct some day to the FC Barcelona, something that seems complicated that it can finish giving.

In any case, along his career like trainer can say that has tried to implant a style of alike game to the of the Barça in his teams, with the balloon above all else. In this line, has remembered an anecdote that lived when it landed in the bench of the Southampton. "One of the first things that said me the presi was that me fichaba because it wanted that the team played like the Dream Team. It showed us a video of this Barça. "This is my philosophy… Apply it!", it said me…", it recognises the Argentinian.

Then Pochettino thought that to fulfil that would have to "bring to Leo Messi, to Xavi, to Iniesta...", although it gladdens that the result was so good. "But the most beautiful and what remains is that with these young and English players -Clyne, Lambert, Jay Rodríguez, Prowse, Cork, Lallana, Shaw, Chamberts-, begin to propose a different football. In the second season, in November, had the possibility to put us first playing in front of the Arsenal. This called the attention", remembers with illusion Pochettino.

Since, other technicians have gone proposing also a football of touch and appeal, with the associations between players like protagonists. "The arrival of Pep afterwards cimentó and settled all because nowadays, in any quarry of the world, what predominates is the capacity of this game asociativo and positional that has invaded the world-wide football. No longer there is more the debate Menotti-Bilardo as in his time", does upsetting the ex technical 'spur'.

Where it will finish Pochettino?

It will be necessary to see which is the following project in which it finish shipping Pochettino, that sounded for several clubs but that finally decided to follow without training until it arrived a really satisfactory proposal. To the equal that Allegri, is one of the technicians without team more sought-after and that, sure, will not take too much in going back to take the reins of a 'big'.
