Jan Vertonghen expecting Mauricio Pochettino to manage “big team” in Premier League

    Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen anticipates Mauricio Pochettino to coach a “big team” in the Premier League.

    Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen is expecting Mauricio Pochettino to coach a “big team” in the Premier League as he eyes a return to management.

    Pochettino is still without a position in spite of leaving Tottenham practically 12 months ago following a frustrating start to the 2019-20 campaign.

    Manchester United and Manchester City are both stated to be admirers of the Argentine, who has also been linked with Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg

    Vertonghen has claimed that his former manager is most likely to be “impatient” as he waits on among the “biggest teams in the league” to make him an offer.

    “I can imagine he’s impatient,” Vertonghen informed CBS Soccer’s Que Golazo podcast. “I think the English league fits him very well as he’s a manager that prioritises physical fitness levels and the physicality of the game.

    ” I think handling in the Premier League is most likely the very best thing he can do. He will constantly desire to coach a big team I think, so you have to take a look at the greatest teams in the league and there are only 2 or 3 you can truly take a look at I think at this moment.

    “I won’t name them out of respect for the other managers, but I think that’s what he’s looking at as well and he wants that big team to confirm him what he’s been doing with Tottenham and what he did very well. If I was him I would be impatient because he really loved his job and you want to continue that.”

    The speculation surrounding Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s future at United has quietened following a favorable run of results, however Pep Guardiola is relatively no closer to signing a new deal at the Etihad Arena.
