Mauricio Pochettino has denied that he will walk away from Tottenham Hotspur after Sunday’s match against Arsenal.
The Spurs boss squashed the speculation at this afternoon’s pre-match press conference which he labelled it as stupid.
Tottenham have endured a tough start to the new Premier League season after only managing to win one of their opening three fixtures which included a disappointing defeat at home to Newcastle United last weekend.
Pochettino instead insisted that he is remaining at the club and is currently working on his sixth version of his squad.
Speculation had been beginning to mount yesterday that the Argentine was ready to end his spell in North London, with former midfielder Jamie O’Hara also adding fuel to the fire (talkSPORT).

He told Football.London: “What I can say about that stupid rumour. After five years now I start the sixth and you know how we worked in the summer to try to rebuild and update because from (version) 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 and now 6.0 MP software, you know. That stupidity can happen through some rumour sent into social media that creates a big problem that doesn’t exist. I’m not going to walk away after the north London derby.
“I’m going to be here Monday, Tuesday… My plan is to travel – I’m not going to tell you where because I have some commitments, and then Friday again to London, meeting with Daniel (Levy), the weekend I think I’m going to watch some games live of national teams and Monday is preparing the week. I’m not going to walk away. I’m not this type of person to send a message through social media.
“It’s clear no? Do you bet? It’s closed now eh? You lose your money”
