Mauricio Pochettino wants to take Tottenham Hotspur to ‘last level’

Mauricio Pochettino wants to take Tottenham Hotspur to ‘last level’

The Tottenham Hotspur manager has developed a taste for colourful metaphors this season, having previously compared his side's experience in the Champions League to that of a cow waiting for a train.

"It's like our girlfriend or our wife, no?" "We're so handsome and you're like this, walking down Oxford Street or Regent's Street [holding hands], and she is so proud about you because another woman is looking at you".

Mauricio Pochettino says his players can be confident that he will be staying at Tottenham when they are deciding their own futures - but he believes they should be devoting themselves to the club rather than him. The manager acknowledged that his players trust he will continue at Spurs but warned that their allegiance must be first and foremost to the club.

Pochettino says the midfielder won't be fit to face Wolves and is also expected to miss the subsequent matches against PSV and Crystal Palace. "If I believe that Dele Alli is going to sign or a different player is going to sign a new contract because of me, it is a bad feeling or I am so wrong in my head".

"But I think Pochettino is a little stubborn, you know. Yes, I want to feel the glory with Tottenham", he said. "Otherwise it's hard to achieve big things".

Spurs booked a quarter-final clash with city rivals Arsenal in the EFL Cup after they registered a 3-1 win over West Ham United at the London Stadium on Wednesday night. It was Pochettino himself who fuelled that narrative by speaking last week of his frustration at the delays to Tottenham's stadium move and the associated restrictions in spending.

"We are very close to creating, in terms of facilities, one of the best clubs in the world", he said. Sometimes to win titles today is hard, for many reasons that you and our fans know very well. But as players, you work with the...

"When we move into the stadium, after a few games or maybe after a lot of games, this will all be forgotten with the switch-over".
