The 47-year-old was sacked by Spurs in November despite guiding the club to the Champions League final in June. A poor run of form domestically saw Pochettino’s side go without a win away from home between January and his sacking at the end of the year.
Pochettino was linked heavily with managerial positions at Manchester United and Real Madrid; rumours that continue to surround the 47-year-old especially with United struggling under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“La Liga is a reference for the players”
“It’s a reference for the coaches”

At a launch event for La Liga TV in London, Pochettino was asked about his future and where he could possibly manage in the future.
“England and Spain are the two best leagues in the world,” Pochettino told reporters.
“For me I was so lucky to start my career as a manager at Espanyol in Barcelona and then to come to the Premier League to learn a different language and culture and I am a better person today. I have more knowledge and had a great experience. The Premier League is the Premier League. Football was born here in England but I think LaLiga has amazing football and amazing coaches.”
The Argentinian was reportedly approached by Barcelona to take over at the Nou Camp on Monday following the dismissal of Ernesto Valverde, but turned down the chance to manage Lionel Messi and Co – something he has said he could never do considering his close ties to Catalan rivals Espanyol, who he managed for four seasons.
