Tottenham Hotspur are just five days away from the biggest match in the club’s history, and Mauricio Pochettino is just five days from the biggest game in his managerial career to date.
Spurs have not won a trophy in over a decade, while Poch has failed to win a piece of silverware as a gaffer, but could both droughts be about to end?
Much has been said about Pochettino’s future at the North London club in the build-up to the Champions League final, with reports suggesting that he is wanted by Juventus this summer (Guardian).
However, Pochettino has now insisted that he is 200 per cent committed to Tottenham at this moment in time, as he prepares to lead his team to their first CL final in Madrid.
Although, Poch did leave a little room for debate in his comments, as he added the press could talk about his future after the final on Saturday.
He said (Football London): “Today nothing is more important than the game we have ahead. We can make history, we can write our history and provide our fans and people and family with the best happiness in football. To think about individual things is a little bit embarrassing and a shame. I am not important. What happens in the future with me? I think we have bigger things ahead to think about (the final). To play the final of the Champions League, to play with all the emotions that this competition generates, I am nothing to worry about. I am not important more than the Champions League or the possibility to win a trophy. You ask about me but today the focus is 200 per cent on the final. Rumours are rumours and are there. After the final we will have time to talk, but today I am committed 200 per cent to Tottenham.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
In my opinion, Poch is going nowhere. His recent comments have only strengthened my belief that he will be at Spurs for at least a couple more seasons, and potentially longer if Daniel Levy stumps up the cash for him to invest in the squad. Let’s hope Spurs can win the Champions League and give Poch the money he needs to bring the club regular silverware.
