Mauricio Pochettino was somewhat unfairly posed a question about Christian Eriksen’s future on Sunday.
The Tottenham Hotspur boss was a guest of the British F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone along with his assistant Jesus Perez.
Pochettino was spotted on the starting grid before the race among other familiar faces from the world of sport and television and was stopped by a reporter who initially asked him about his presence at the event before throwing a curve ball with the Eriksen question.
The Eriksen query was dealt superbly by the manager who insisted that he hopes that the playmaker will remain in North London, but admitted that he did not know for sure what will happen.

Just days after the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool at the start of last month, Eriksen decided to reveal his desire to the media that he wishes to leave Tottenham whilst inviting attention from Real Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).
Some Spurs fans took to Twitter following the interview to have their say on the situation.
We shouldn't be worrying about losing anyone. Players come and go and the club continue to move forward.

Christian was going only if there’s a better club than Tottenham.His poor performances in the last months are due to fatigue and lack of rotation and I doubt if Poch doesn’t know that.

I think it’s more we’ve accepted it rather then worry about it.

Sorry not worried about losing a player who only shows up for 30% of every season

Lo Celso is coming regardless of Eriksen.
And Saliba ans Sessengon are Toby and Rose replacements.

Getting sick of all this now. He has publicly said he wants to leave…”if I don’t find better, I’ll stay” but otherwise “it’s time for something new”
Until he comes out publicly and says he’s now 100% committed to spurs, there’s nothing else to talk about. He’s got to go

Eriksen isn’t playing like he wants to be here anymore, whilst the other two are. #eriksenout
