Mauricio Pochettino has given his last press conference as Espanyol coach. The club “perico” decided to dispense with his services after the poor results achieved at the start of the League. He leaves like a gentleman, thanking all the members of the club and the fans. "I want to thank the fans for their treatment. He has endured many things and now he deserves to regain his illusion ", he said during his farewell.
“I also appreciate the support of those who have worked with me, many people who have worked in the shade, but they have been important. Also to the footballers with whom I have spent these years. It is a club that I will always carry in my heart ".
“As i said in 2006 in my farewell as a player, I will always be at the club's disposal for whatever it needs and they will always find in me someone to lean on and to turn to. I hope one day I can return because I feel this club is home and it is my family, It will be a pride for me to be able to go around the world saying that we are ”parakeets” from Barcelona”, stated at a press conference.
"It is a very strong feeling. My children are 'parakeets'. The Argentine does not bear any grudge because "These decisions are always made thinking that it is the best for the team".
further, in a rare case in these times, acknowledged that he is resigning his last year of contract: "I am a man of my word and yes, I have resigned from my last year of contract. I will not charge. Mauricio Pochettino leaves like a man.
