Mauricio Pochettino promises to stay on as Tottenham manager

Mauricio Pochettino promises to stay on as Tottenham manager

Tottenham Hotspur can not compete with their Premier League rivals offering huge wages in the transfer market despite securing a Champions League berth for the upcoming season, manager Mauricio Pochettino has said.

There had been reports Italian giants Inter Milan were prepared to offer him a lucrative deal to move to Serie A this summer. "I will be here at Tottenham too next year, do not worry", he said.

But I am committed to Tottenham and I have no reason to leave.

Pochettino, who also guided Tottenham to the FA Cup semi-finals where they lost to Chelsea, said lessons had still to be learnt in order for the team to convert a near-miss into the title next season.

Defeat at West Ham earlier this month effectively ended Spurs' late title charge, although they recovered to beat Manchester United in the final game at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

As quoted by the London Evening Standard, he told his pre-match press conference: "People have said we're safe and Tottenham can't finish any higher than second".

Before Pochettino begins crystallising his transfer targets, however, he must ensure the current crop arrive fresh and raring to go at the start of next season.




"Everyone just has a special connection here".

"That has to motivate us to hopefully be out there next year lifting a Premier League together. We need to do better, be stronger, improve in every area to try to win".

"If you are in a big club, look at Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern [Munich], all the big clubs are involved in tournaments", added Pochettino. We are getting a decent price on this bet so this play makes a little bit of sense.

In case you didn't know.

.

"We want to win our last two games, that is important".

Shakespeare took the reins at the King Power Stadium in February 2017 following the sacking of Claudio Ranieri.

The Belgian midfielder has been making appearances from the bench over the last few weeks and Pochettino has indicated that he has not been fit enough to make the starting eleven. "It will be more than an interesting game".
