Man Utd and Arsenal on red alert as Pochettino claims he wants quick return

first_imgMAURICIO POCHETTINO has put Manchester United and Arsenal on red alert after claiming he is ready to return to management straight away.The Argentine was sacked by Tottenham after a poor start to the season – but is still held in high regard after the magnificent job he did over his first five years at White Hart Lane.2 Pochettino’s availability will have Man Utd and Arsenal on red alertAs well as Man United and Arsenal, Pochettino has also found himself linked with the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.And having made a trip back to Argentina after his sacking, Pochettino told Fox Sports Argentina: “There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on.”But, for the time being, the most important thing is for me to clear my head after five-and-a-half incredible seasons with Tottenham.”My aim is to seek the ability to rebuild myself and get my self-motivation back.”It is my intention to return to manage in Europe. It is hard for me to imagine a project in Argentina. However for the sake of my family, I would not refuse to work over here.”But now I need to be calm for a few days and see what happens. I haven’t had a lot of time to digest what has happened with me.”My first decision was to come back to Argentina, return to my home and see family and friends. But I expect to return to Europe to make decisions on my future.2″My best decision was to come to Argentina to switch off for ten days.”At my age I don’t need a lot of time to recover. I am open to listen to projects put before me.”While Pochettino has emerged as a genuine candidate for the Arsenal job – it remains very unlikely to happen.If the 47-year-old were to take another job in the Premier League this season – he would have to pay Tottenham back the £12.5million compensation he was paid when sacked.As well as this, Pochettino would be unlikely to betray his principles to accept a job with Tottenham’s fiercest rivals.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLGossipCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticBAYERN 5 DUSSELDORF 0Lewa bags two as Bayern thump rivals to close on 8th straight titleTHEIR CALLReferees in Northern Ireland will be given choice on coming back says union bossHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotLive BlogTOON LATESTNewcastle takeover LIVE: Follow all the latest updates in Saudi sagaManchester United are long-term admirers of the Argentine’s work, but for now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains in the Old Trafford hotseat.Bayern Munich, managerless since sacking Niko Kovac last month, are thought to be very keen on Pochettino – despite having beaten Poch’s Spurs 7-2 earlier this season.The much sought after manager yesterday visited Newell’s Old Boys in Argentina – where he is a club legend as a player.

Audit of GCAA likely soon – new Director

first_imgBY SHEMUEL FANFAIRAn international audit on aviation is expected to be conducted into the operations of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCCA). Soon to be appointed Director General, Egbert Field, made this revelation at the welcoming ceremony of the inaugural flight of Fly AllWays airline at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport on Tuesday.New Director of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority, retired Colonel Egbert FieldHis comments came on the heels that most air carriers operating out of Guyana are unable to land at airports in North America due to the lack of international Category One aviation status. On this note, Field told reporters that immediately upon him taking office, one of the priorities will be to raise the country’s level of compliance in line with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).“No airline that is registered and based in Guyana has the ability to go to airports North America because we are in Category Two,” he noted.It was explained that ICAO representatives will soon be in Guyana to carry out an assessment after which it is hoped that the country can move from a Category Two status to Category One.“After the audit, depending on our level of compliance, we may have some corrective actions to do but I can see us moving toward Category One [which] we will gain from the FAA (Federal Aviation Authority)… gaining Category One will allow airlines starting up and basing themselves in Guyana will have the opportunity to fly to North America,” the new GCAA Director noted.With his 40 years of experience in the aviation sector, including some 30 years as a Guyana Airways pilot and later a stint in Jamaica’s Aviation Authority, Field posited that this has made him suitable to lead the country’s aviation sector.“I’m a retired Colonel, also a captain… with over 30 years experience flying – over 18,000 hours, I know what I can do for this industry and we may have a return to Guyana Airways in the future,” Field expressed.The retired military officer shared the view that Guyana achieving the improved aviation status is especially timely since he believes that air traffic will increase once the oil sector takes off.Established in March 2002, The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority is guided by Civil Aviation Act (2000) which governs navigation, licensing and security regulations for air transport services in Guyana.last_img read more
