Mauricio Pochettino says it is up to the club to decide if he is deserving of a new contract.

Pochettino has enjoyed another stellar season at the club this year despite playing the entire season away from home and as such recent reports have claimed he is set to agree fresh terms.

However speaking in his press conference the 46-year-old is respectful of the situation and the fact he has three years to run on his current contract, saying it is up to the Spurs hierarchy to decide if he should be rewarded with a new deal.

“I don’t know that is up to him (Daniel Levy), it is up to the club to have contact with me if they are happy with my job to offer [me a new deal] or not,” said Pochettino.Personally, I am happy. I still have three years on my contract.But of course it is his decision and the club’s decision to open a discussion or not.”

On the subject of Daniel Levy’s salary which has been well publicised Pochettino said it is none of his business what chairman Daniel Levy earns.

Levy was revealed to have taken home over £6million for the year ending 30th June 2017, though that figure includes a backdated pay rise and bonus and was decided by the club’s remuneration committee review.

“First of all it is very good news for the club, for the company,” the Argentinian said. “It is a record (revenue) for the club and it is very positive news for Tottenham.

He added: “It is not my point to talk, I don’t know the reality. He is my boss and I need to respect everything my boss made and does.”
