Mauricio Pochettino hasn’t ruled out managing elsewhere one day, but insists he will never coach Arsenal.

The Tottenham boss was speaking ahead of Spurs’ trip to Newport in the FA Cup this weekend.

“I am so clear: I am never going to be manager of Barcelona or Arsenal because I am so identified with Tottenham and Espanyol,” he said. (Quotes via ESPN.)

“I grew up in Newell’s Old Boys and will never manage Rosario Central. I prefer to work on my farm in Argentina than in some places.

“But my commitment is massive in this club. I am working like I am going to be here forever. But in the end, it is like the players, you never know what is going to happen in football.

“Tomorrow Daniel [Levy, the Tottenham chairman] could have a bad night and say, ‘Oh I am going to sack Mauricio.’ And then I look stupid saying I am not going to work in one place or another.

“You never know in football. That is the problem. It is a very unstable situation.”
