“There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on,””Pochettino told Fox Sports.

“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.”

IPOB fires back at Army over video of Boko Haram killing soldiers

Published

on

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has hit back at the Nigerian army, warning it not to “drag” the group into its “pitiful plight”, in the fight against Boko Haram.

Spokesman of the group, Emma Powerful, stated this in a statement on Thursday, in reaction to claims made by the army, that it was behind the circulation of a recent video which showed Boko Haram insurgents killing Nigerian soldiers.

The security agency alleged that IPOB doctored the video as a tool for propaganda and that the incident did not happen in Nigeria.

“It is quite pathetic how the Nigerian army would belittle themselves in the eyes of the world by involving IPOB in their futile attempt to deflect attention from their failed effort to fight terrorism.

“The Nigerian Army must understand that Biafra is not Nigeria. IPOB have more important things to do that engaging in doctoring a video that is so clear for all to see.

“The video of Boko Haram torturing and humiliating the Nigerian Army … is real and verifiable. IPOB has nothing to do with the trending video.

“This shameful statement from Nigeria Army proves that the Nigeria Army and her sister security outfits in Nigeria have lost control of their phony war against Boko Haram and as usual are looking to blame IPOB for their pitiful plight,” Powerful said in a statement.
