'England and Spain are the two best leagues': Mauricio Pochettino coy over where his next job will be after Tottenham sacking Mauricio Pochettino hinted he would like to manage in England or Spain nextHe was sacked from his manager job at Tottenham Hotspur earlier this season He has been linked with Barcelona and Manchester United in recent weeks 

Mauricio Pochettino is keeping his cards close to his chest over where his next job in football lies - but hinted that a return to the Premier League or LaLiga remains a strong possibility.

The former Tottenham manager was in attendance for the official launch of the LaLigaTV event in London along with his assistant Jesus Perez and ex-Spurs and Chelsea midfielder Gus Poyet.

The Argentine boss has been out of work since he was sacked from his position at Spurs earlier this season and has been linked with taking over at Barcelona and Manchester United in recent weeks.

He had been linked with Barcelona, but now Quique Setien has taken over the prestigious job

When asked about his next career move, Pochettino joked that he didn't understand the question before telling LaLigaTV presenter Simon Hanley that he was still weighing up his options while enjoying time off with his family.

He said: '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.

Pochettino has also been linked with Man United, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under pressure

'Coaches like Gustavo (Poyet) and myself, we try and be in the best place.. England and Spain are the two best leagues in the world.'

The 56-year-old was reportedly approached by Barcelona to take over at the Nou Camp on Monday following the dismissal of Ernesto Valverde.

Pochettino 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.

However, Pochettino insisted that Barcelona's new boss Quique Setien would continue Johan Cruyff's philosophy at the Nou Camp.

Pochettino hinted that he would like to stay in the Premier League, or go back to La Liga

'Barcelona, of course, are one of the greatest teams in the world,' he added. 'Of course now with the new manager everyone is expecting him to continue the same philosophy.

'Valverde did a fantastic job in LaLiga and with Barcelona and it's a massive challenge for Quique Setien. He showed unbelievable love for [Johan] Cruyff and the style of football of Barcelona.

'I think it's a great opportunity for him to live his dream and it's so amazing to follow what's going to happen.'
