Pochettino: I Can't "PROMISE" Being At Tottenham Next Season

Mauricio Pochettino explained the circumstance surrounding his stay at Tottenham.

He said he cannot "promise" he will still be at the club next season, that the fact that he signed a 5 years contract can not influence his decision because he loves big challenge.

Tottenham manager Pochettino has been linked with Premier League rivals United, as well as LaLiga giants Real Madrid. 

At United he his seen as a perfect replacement for Jose Mourinho and the cloud his currently doing well under it caretaker coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

When asked if he will still be at Tottenham next season, he replied: "I can't promise that"

"It depends on the mood of my chairman, on the decision of the company, it's not only my decision.
"I signed for five years. I am respecting my contract. But to sign a five-year contract does not mean you'll be here for ever."

He added: "I love my job and of course I love a big challenge. When I arrived at Tottenham, I knew very well the challenge would be tough.

"We are victims of our own success, the club was at a different level. I am a very positive person and I am going to stick with the club until the end to help the club achieve all they want."

Pochettino said that Spurs can not compete with clubs like Liverpool and Man City in the transfer window as the club did not sign a player before the season started and they are set to end another transfer window without reinforcements.

Speaking to ESPN he said: "In the past couple of years, Liverpool have invested a lot of money.

"Due to a number of circumstances, we've tried to produce young players with great futures such as Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, [Kieran] Trippier or Harry Winks.

"We are creating players. But in this case, Liverpool need a defender, they get [Virgil] van Dijk. They need a goalkeeper, who's the best? Alisson. It's the same as Manchester City.

"In the end, it's valid as Real Madrid and Barcelona do the same because they're on a different level.

"At the moment, Tottenham haven't reached that level, so when we can't buy a washing machine, we get a dryer that can do the same job. Instead of a sofa, we get a chair where you can also sit. That's the difference between Tottenham and the teams that are built to win."
