Pochettino dreams of PSG return

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits he would be realising a dream if he ever returned to former club Paris Saint-German as their manager.

The Argentine spent two-and-a-half years at Parc Des Princes as a player from 2001 to 2003 and won the adoration of the fans in a memroable stint as PSG captain.

Pochettino has seen his stock rise with a one-year spell in charge of Southampton, which earned him a move to White Hart Lane and he has turned the north Londoners into genuine title contenders in just his second season in the capital.

The 44-year-old revealed he still follows Les Parisiens, who recently won their fourth straight Ligue 1 title, and thinks the French top flight has plenty of talent on offer.

"I've always said that I would be pleased to join a great club like PSG," Pochettino told French radio station RMC.

"Come to Paris? I hope so. It is true that it would please me. It's part of my dreams. I try to watch all their matches, especially in the Champions League.

"The [French] championship is not very attractive because PSG is far from the other teams but I look a lot because it is a major source of players. There is talent so I have to follow Ligue 1."
