Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting on Twitter to the news that Mauricio Pochettino believes that Tottenham do not “need” to win the FA Cup and it would not move them “to a different level”.
Pochettino was speaking at the pre-match press conference ahead of the semi-final clash against Manchester United at Wembley and instead feels that the club should instead focus on trying to win the Premier League or Champions League which would help to propel the club forward.
Spurs fans have not tasted domestic trophy success in over 10 years, when we lifted the League Cup against Chelsea and had the following to say about Pochettino’s comments.
What are your thoughts? Have your say below.

Like Pochettino's comments on the FA Cup, yep nice to win it if we can but only winning the league or CL would move the club to another level. He's absolutely right and that's the ambition that should be set.

Mauricio Pochettino insists Tottenham will not get to the next level by winning the FA Cup.
Who is even suggesting that? All we want is a trophy. I'm sure the players want a trophy too. It will do for now. It should be a catalyst for further success next season.

Pochettino is 100% right that winning the FA cup will not take us up to the next level. However, it would be nice to see us lift it and it would be a start and the team we have deserve to have this first trophy.

Of course he is right, would be nice though

He's spot on, he's not for one moment saying it wouldn't be great and make history but it wouldn't move the club into the next tier. Arsenal won it last yr and their fans have quickly forgotten.

Yeah but a trophy is long overdue and winning none means the greater chance of our star players moving to other clubs – Kyle Walker for example will not be looking back..

Frustrating as a Spurs fan, we don't have the resources to compete in CL. Need that first trophy on the board and build from there
