Mauricio Pochettino: ‘I am staying at Tottenham Hotspur’

Mauricio Pochettino concedes Tottenham are unable to match their Premier League rivals when it comes to offering wages to potential targets.

Watching Chelsea’s jubilant players celebrate their title triumph was a painful experience for Tottenham striker Kane, who once again has more than 20 goals to his credit without winning a major trophy.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, meanwhile, picked up the Manager of the Month award for April.

“When I signed here I understood the Tottenham project and Daniel Levy”, The Daily Star quote the Argentine as saying. Dele Alli and Harry Kane have to stay at this football club in this next 18 months to two years because the message when they go back to White Hart Lane is that they want people to pay more money and fill that stadium every single week. “I will enjoy my time here now; who knows what will happen in the future”.

“I think they are not machines and they need properly holidays. So much so that a year ago the anomaly was that Leicester were able to take advantage of the misfortune of all the top clubs that weren’t really playing their top performance”. It’s not a criticism [of Wenger].

“I’ve still got a lot to improve on”, he said.

Pochettino believes Chelsea’s lack of European football was a crucial factor in their success. “Hopefully, we will be finishing strong and achieving a nice thing as well”. That is the easy way. It will always be the club’s decision to keep or sell the players.

“I am very sensitive person and so emotional, so it will be hard not to cry”, Pochettino said.

“Yesterday, we were walking around the training ground – [coaches] John McDermott, Jesus Perez, Toni Jimenez and Miguel D’Agostino and the chairman”. We’re all looking to learn together and build together and be as successful as we can. If not, it is hard.

“We did really well to get [the gap] down, at one point I think Chelsea were 14 points away from us, and we took it down to four points”.

Tottenham have a problem at right wing-back this evening with both Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier ruled out through an ankle injury and concussion respectively.

“It was the flawless day to put on a performance and I’m very proud of it”.

Son scored Tottenham’s second goal when Dele Alli teed him up with a brilliant chip in the 36th minute.

Tuttosport (via Tuttomercatoweb), though, claimed that Pochettino had no plans to depart White Hart Lane for the San Siro, and Pochettino’s own comments have now confirmed as such. Manchester United? They’re a good club of course but this year and the year before they didn’t really demonstrate that they were what they were when Sir Alex was in charge. “Be sure it will be very very emotional but at the same time it will be very, very exciting to welcome the new stadium“.
