Mauricio Pochettino met up with Unai Emery for coffer and to chat about their times in north London after they lost their jobs at Tottenham and Arsenal, respectively, last year.

Pochettino and Emery were sacked within 10 days of each other from their Premier League roles after poor starts to the season for both.

It was a sad end to a successful time in charge of Spurs for the Argentine, while the Spaniard’s regime at Arsenal never really got off the ground.

They had very different times on either side of the north London divide and Pochettino has revealed that he and his assistant, Jesus Perez, met with Emery after their dismissals to talk things over – much to the surprise of onlookers in the capital.

‘Before the pandemic, me and Jesús met with Unai for a coffee, to talk and share our experiences,’ Pochettino told the Guardian.

‘We were working in different clubs, we were at the enemy, and people were walking past and saying: “Unai and Pochettino and Jesús are now sharing a coffee!”

‘It was in Cockfosters [in north London]. It was very funny.

‘It has been an amazing time to review and analyse everything: training sessions, games, our methodology, our models of training … to design specific and collective works. And, of course, to try to adapt for the new normality, to be ready for any eventuality, because the demands are going to be completely different.’

Pochettino’s family is still settled in London and a Premier League return remains a possibility for him, although he is keeping his options open as he looks for the ideal return to football.

‘We are looking forward for the next job,’ said the 48-year-old. ‘Football is very dynamic and you need to be ready for the moment when the offer appears. We are ready. After six months, our tanks are completely full.

‘It’s about the club and, of course, the people, the human dimension. We are so open. Of course, we love England and the Premier League.’
