Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that the only way he will leave Tottenham Hotspur is if he is sacked by chairman Daniel Levy.
In May, the Spurs boss signed a new five-year contract worth up to £8.5m each year which will keep him at the club until 2023, along with his coaches, Jesús Pérez, Miguel D’Agostino and Toni Jiménez.
Pochettino had been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid following Zinedine Zidane’s departure, but pledged his loyalty to Tottenham.
After a few years of being ‘nearly men’, Pochettino insists that he is at Tottenham to bring silverware to the club and deliver success after many trophy-barren years.
He has led Spurs to three successive top-three finishes and Champions League qualifications, but admits that this is not enough.
He said in an interview with The Daily Mail: ‘If some people believe the manager of Tottenham doesn’t want to win they are not right in their minds,’
‘I’m here to win. The reality is to win and to have the argument about whether you have the tools to win is a different matter. We have had massive success at the club, getting Champions League for a third year in a row.
‘But maybe that is not enough and maybe we need to change certain things because for me it is not enough. I want to challenge and fight to win things until the end, that moment when my chairman Daniel Levy says to me, “Mauricio go home and find another project”.’
