Mauricio Pochettino: 'I'm staying, there is no buy-out clause in my contract'

Mauricio Pochettino: 'I'm staying, there is no buy-out clause in my contract'

Antonio Conte (Chelsea) and Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham), Paul Clement (Swansea City), Sean Dyche (Burnley), Eddie Howe (Bournemouth) and Tony Pulis (West Bromwich Albion) have been nominated for the Premier League Manager of the Year award.

TEAM NEWS: @trippier2 (concussion) and @kylewalker2 (ankle) will both miss tomorrow's trip to Leicester.

So, with the build-up well underway ahead of Thursday's clash, we at Shoot! have selected our ultimate Leicester-Tottenham five-a-side team based on those players available for selection at the King Power Stadium...

"We will have different options to play with different players", said Pochettino.

It seems clear Alli could envisage himself playing overseas, but it would be a surprise if he departed Spurs this summer given they appear to be edging closer to a Premier League title win.

"Now it is a moment to give time to recover after yesterday and I will be here on Friday to check how he is".

"It's an unbelievable feeling - I'm very thankful for the fans who voted for me", Son said in an interview for the EPL's official website.




The Argentinian, a former central defender who was capped 20 times including at the 2002 World Cup, guided Tottenham to second in the league.

Pochettino has previously fired shots at Chelsea, saying last month that buying trophies was an "artificial" route to success and claiming Spurs are unique in their "genuine, very natural" approach, despite their own summer outlay of almost £70m. He has so far scored 19 goals in all competitions this season, matching Cha Bum-kun's tally in the 1985-86 season with Leverkusen. "In October and November we dropped a lot of points and it was hard to catch Chelsea", the Argentinean added.

Still only 21, Alli has always been regarded as one of the best up-and-coming talents in the English game, and he's done his reputation the world of good in two seasons at White Hart Lane. "That is why they won in the end". "It's okay but maybe he is not at his best to play 90 minutes", Pochettino said.

The Argentinian has also revealed that Mousa Dembele has been struggling with a long-term foot injury and has been playing through the pain to stay available. That makes it special and an exciting project for us.

"After Sunday he needs to see the specialist".

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