Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-2 draw against Everton confirmed that the club have secured four consecutive top four finishes in the top flight which is is their best run since a run of five between 1959-60 and 1963-64.
It was a typical final game of the season type of performance from both sides at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium with Mauricio Pochettino’s players still on an emotional high from Tuesday’s win against Ajax still at the forefront of everyone’s mind.
After the historic events in Amsterdam, Mauricio Pochettino admitted that he could walk away from Spurs this summer unless he gets assurances from chairman Daniel Levy over the club’s plans (The Sun).
Spurs have not signed any fresh faces in the previous two transfer windows and despite securing a place in the Champions League final and fourth place in the table have still finished a huge 27 points behind winners Manchester City.
Pochettino refused to be drawn in by journalists on transfers and talks with Daniel Levy by insisting that the focus is instead on the match in Madrid against Liverpool.
He told Football.London: “No, now our focus is, because all the fans here deserve us to be cautious in the way we are going to talk. The focus and the energy has to be on helping the players arrive in the best condition and design the plan to try to win. We are going to have time after the final. What happens happens and for sure we are going to talk but now is about being focused on working hard and a big level in how we are going to manage and handle the players to arrive in the best condition for the final. I think we can make history.
“We are creating history because we are making it, but if we can win we will write history and change the perception of this amazing club. Of course the club and the fans and we all deserve to be focused on the way and how we can win the final. That is the principle objective, there’s not another objective now.”
