Pochettino gives no guarantees on Tottenham future

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino says there are no guarantees over his future at the club next season.

The Argentine, who has been in charge since May 2014, has earned plenty of plaudits for his work in charge of Spurs, eventually leading to links with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid. Despite those positions now having been filled, the 47-year-old says he cannot guarantee his future due to the unpredictable nature of football.

Talking to Sky Sports, he said: “It does not depend only on me, it’s about Daniel (Levy). Of course I know he is happy with me and that is what he is telling me.

“But I understand Tottenham is bigger than one person. Tottenham is bigger than one player, Tottenham is bigger than everything.

“Always, you need to feel my position here is I need to fight every day to keep my position. That doesn’t mean I am not comfortable.

Always I tell Jesus (Perez, assistant manager), we need to think that maybe tomorrow if we don’t care about our position maybe we can go away quick. Football changes the same very quickly.

“It’s difficult to say I am now happy and sure I will be here next season. If, I said that and something wrong happened and I’m not here then you say, ‘Oh Pochettino said he will be here and now he’s not here.”

The bookies suggest that he is unlikely to leave Spurs anytime soon. Pochettino can be backed at odds of 50/1 with Betfair to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post.
