Mauricio Pochettino is ready to manage again and has said returning to the Premier League is his "priority".
The Argentinian was relieved of his duties at Tottenham in November and is no longer on their payroll having ended his six-month gardening leave earlier this week.
That means he is now free to join another club without prospective owners needing to pay Spurs compensation.
The work he did at Spurs, taking them to the top table of English and European football, is sure to earn him a different level of opportunity and he is dreaming of the "perfect project".
He admits, though, that due to the uncertainty around the coronavirus crisis, he does not know what that will look like.
"Always, you dream of the perfect club. The perfect project," he said. "It's difficult to discover until... the project is not on the table. It's difficult to assess.
"From outside, it's difficult to measure the capacity of the clubs, the capacity of the players, the squad. You need to share ideas in the moment that some club approaches you and start to talk.
"To try to find if the project is a good fit or not.
"Today we are going to live a completely different era in football that we need to discover. It's difficult to know what project is going to be the right project.
"There are many things, at the moment, that we have in our minds about how things are going to be after this virus hopefully disappears, but how are these clubs or companies, because that's what they are, going to be? It's a big question mark.
"That's why it's so difficult. We are a coaching staff that are open to listen to all the projects, all the people. We are learning and sharing ideas.
"You never know when it's going to be the motivation or the inspiration to say, 'Oh, they are the right people, and you want to be with them or their club'.
"We are very receptive to listen to all the people because every single conversation we can learn from and maybe we can see a motivation to go with them."
