“I am now trying to watch a lot of football and spend time with my family. It’s good that I’m free for the next two weeks [to take up the La Liga TV free for a fortnight offer],” Pochettino said.
“As for La Liga, I am Argentino, but half Argentino and half Spanish, Catalan. A good mix. For me I was so lucky to start my career like a manager in Espanyol in Barcelona and then to come here to the Premier League to England, to learn English and different cultures.
“Of course, I am a better person today with more knowledge. I am living a great experience. The Premier League is the Premier League, but I think it’s a great opportunity for the people in the UK to be fans of La Liga and have very close contact.
“Of course football was born here in England but La Liga has amazing football and amazing coaches. Today it’s a reference of players, a reference of coaches and the football in the last 20 years that is shown around the world.
“Like a coach, with Gustavo, we always try to be in the best place. I think England and Spain are the two best leagues in the world.”
