‘You need to discover new challenges’ – Pochettino coy on his Spurs future

Tottenham Hotspur have come on leaps and bounds since Mauricio Pochettino took over at the club. The Argentine has taken them from a team on the brink of the top four to consistent Champions League football for four consecutive campaigns.

The Spurs gaffer went one better last season when he led Tottenham to their first-ever Champions League final, knocking out Borussia Dortmund, Man City, and Ajax on the way.

Unfortunately, Liverpool proved to be a step too far for the Lilywhites in the final in Madrid, but no one expected them to even make the final in the first place. It was certainly a huge step and a massive statement from the North London club.

With all the talk about new players coming in this summer, perhaps the most important signings for Spurs in recent years has been the manager himself, and Levy will want to do everything and anything to keep Pochettino at the club.

However, Poch is remaining coy on his future (Football London): “After the final the feeling wasn’t great, to finish like this. I am not a person who wants to avoid the problem. I love a big challenge. For sure [if he’d won the Champions League it would be a different scenario]. Like Kieran told me, he loves working with Tottenham but at 28 you need to discover new challenges. It’s inside you and you need to accept how you feel.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

While Poch still has a few years left on his current contract, Daniel Levy needs to be looking at a new deal. Make Poch the promises he needs and offer him a huge pay rise. I worry that things could come crumbling down if that man leaves and Spurs need to tie him down for the long-haul.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I absolutely live poch and I really want him to stay but this club was taking steps forward before him and will continue on after him. Would it be a massive blow to lose him? Absolutely but their are other managers and Levy has been fabulous in ensuring that our club is firmly in the top 5 epl clubs. We need to face the fact as a club that the day is coming that Poch will move on and that does not necessarily mean we have to go back to euro league football. Tottenham is and will be a top football club for the next decade at least.
