Tottenham Hotspur are looking good so far this season.

Jose Mourinho has got Spurs off to an excellent start to the Premier League campaign with the north London side just two points off the top of the table.

But Tottenham's rise can't be credited to Mourinho alone.

Prior to his appointment Mauricio Pochettino enjoyed five-and-a-half years at the helm in which he established the club as regular challengers for the top four.

He even managed to guide the club to the Champions League final in his last full season in the hotseat.

Since being dismissed last Autumn, Pochettino has been linked with a number of high-profile jobs including Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus.

But discussing his future the Argentine has said that he's happy to be patient as he waits for the right opportunity.

Speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, as quoted by The Express, Pochettino said: “I don't know. I'm not going to close any door.

“I learned always, when I was really young, that football is going to dictate your way. I'm waiting to feel what is the right project for us, which is the right way to take.

“Of course, we're living in a very crazy situation with our lives, something we never expect, and obviously it's completely different, not only in football.

“But my energy is full, I love to be involved in the game, but at the same time I need to understand it's a moment that you need to wait for and you need to wait for the right project .

“For sure, football is going to bring what football wants, and we need to be open to this and, of course, whether to accept or not.

“I don't feel that it's one year that I'm not working, to be honest.

"Maybe because of the last seven or eight months, with no fans in the stadiums.”

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

I can't wait to see Mauricio Pochettino get back into management.

Whether you're a fan of Tottenham Hotspur or not, the Argentine is a universally popular figure in the football world.

That's why his return is so eagerly anticipated.

It remains to be seen where his next opportunity will arise - after all, I'm sure that he's already fended off a number of proposals in the last 12 months.

But Pochettino will be holding out for a top tier job and a top tier project.
