It may be too early to read into small things like that, but the Argentine has been reported as being open to managing Arsenal despite his Spurs connections, according to a recent report from the Manchester Evening News.
Arsenal recently sacked Unai Emery and could do with a big name coming in after a poor start by Freddie Ljungberg as caretaker boss.
Still, Pochettino was a little vague on his future, suggesting he was in no hurry to rush back into a new job and would take his time to assess his options.
“It’s important to have a moment of calm to lower the decibels and find the energy to take on a new project, and we’ll see where that is,” he said in the video above, as translated by the Metro.
“I’m going to spend a few days here [in Rosario] with my family and friends, and then I’ll return to London next week.”
