Spurs still struggling to compete on wages, claims Pochettino

Spurs still struggling to compete on wages, claims Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino: "I will stay here next season".

Leicester are now 11th but could finish as high as eighth.

Pochettino has faced questions about his own future in recent weeks, amid interest from Barcelona and Inter Milan, with some reports in Italy suggesting his contract includes a buy-out clause. However, with Zaha close to signing a few deal worth £120k-a-week by Crystal Palace, and Ross Barkley being valued at £50m by Everton, finances look to remain a thorn in the side of Tottenham this summer.

"We were talking about last season when we finished so bad".

Kane told the club's website afterwards: "Obviously going into this game there has been a lot of talk about the Golden Boot and I wanted to just make sure I was in the mix for the last day of the season". I am not too anxious, I don't think the players are too anxious.

Ken Stanley, who has been a Spurs season-ticket holder since 1929, was presented with Dele Alli's boots after the final whistle.

Kane is unmoved by such talk and says Spurs' trajectory makes them as attractive as virtually any club in the world. Pochettino may rest Mousa Dembele and they will also be without Danny Rose. Defensive duo Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier will both be unable to play a part due to an ankle knock and concussion respectively. If we are consistent to push, push, push I think we will achieve what we want - that is to win trophies. "He will have all our support".




Only Liverpool and Manchester City have created more chances than Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this season.

Almost everything has already been settled before the end of the Premier League season this weekend (unless you actually think Liverpool might fail to beat Middlesbrough).

Pochettino believes Chelsea's lack of European football was a crucial factor in their success. In the moment that Harry was out, he was our main striker and scored a lot of goals and gave us a lot of points.

"We just need to try and pick up as many points as possible".

"Chelsea was in a different picture". Maybe Sanchez being at home and with Arsenal having more to play for fighting for the top four, but it hasn't been a great night for Lukaku or Sanchez. "That is why they won in the end".

Spurs visit 11-placed Leicester City later on Thursday before travelling to already-relegated Hull City on Sunday in their final game of the season.
