Loads of Newcastle United fans have been discussing comments made by former Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino after he told BT Sport (via ChronicleLive) that he is motivated for his next challenge.
The 48-year old added that he is looking forward to moving on from Spurs and that he is motivated for his next project, but deep inside he admits that he would like to be back at the Lilywhites one day.
Whether that project would be at St. James’ Park is all speculation at this point, but judging by his remarks it seems as if the Argentine’s heart remains with THFC.
Speaking about his time at the north London club, ‘Poch’ described the journey as amazing, but that it finished in the way that nobody wanted it to. He claimed that deeper in his soul, his path will cross again with Tottenham, and it is his dream to go back and try to finish the work he started off, adding that Spurs were so close to winning the Premier League and Champions League.
These members of the Toon faithful discussed his verdict on Twitter:
He doesn't know what he's missing until he's tried it!

He could do it for the long term who's to say he couldn't go to Tottenham after that also who's to say if he gets such a bond at Newcastle or someone else he may not want to go back to Spurs later down the line as he is so attached to a different club i for one want him top guy

Reading his comments, it almost sounds like he’d take the job, but unless its Spurs, his heart won’t be completely in it.
