Pochettino hints at Spurs stay

Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that he plans to stay at Tottenham beyond this summer, despite speculation surrounding his future.

The Argentine has transformed the North London club to serial underachievers to Champions League regulars during his four years at the club.

That success has seen him linked with some of the biggest jobs in world and European football, including Real Madrid, PSG and Manchester United, however speaking after Sunday’s 3-1 triumph over Chelsea, he hinted that rather than moving on, he is planning for a future with Spurs in their new stadium:

“To create a winning mentality you have to get good results in big stadiums like the Bernabéu or Stamford Bridge,” said Pochettino.

“Four years ago when we signed [at Spurs] the idea was to reduce the distance to the top four. That was the first target and we’ve done that.

“It’s a difficult thing to move forward. We have to talk a lot in the club, with [the chairman] Daniel Levy, and get round a table and see what happens.

“After four years together, the club has moved on in everything: not just in football but in terms of the facilities, too. Next season we’ll have a new stadium and it could be fantastic. I’ll share my ideas with the club and see how we can improve.”
