Pochettino pledges to stay with Spurs | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


Mauricio Pochettino claims he won’ t walk out on Tottenham despite being a “victim ” of his own success .

Pochettino has been criticised after Tottenham crashed out of two cup competitions in the space of four days last week .

Defeats against Chelsea in the League Cup semi - finals and Crystal Palace in the FA Cup fourth round have left Tottenham boss Pochettino in danger of going another season without a trophy.

Despite failing to win a single major prize in his managerial career, Pochettino says he regards finishing in the Premier League ’ s top four as a greater achievement .

The Argentine , linked with a move to Manchester United at the end of the season , responded to the doubters by claiming he has over - achieved on the club’ s brief to take them in the Champions League by the time they built their new stadium .

“ I love my job , I love my job . And of course , I love a big challenge , ” Pochettino said on Tuesday .

“ I am a very positive person and I am going to try and deliver in my job . I am going to going to stick with the club until the end to help the club achieve all they want .

“ When I arrived at Tottenham I knew very well the challenge will be tough and what happens now will happen now .

“ We are victims of our own success , the club was in a different level . No one believed in us , no one believed the way we operated from beginning will bring success to club.

“ Of course club played once in 22 years in the Champions League and now after four years , we played three times in a row – that was the dream of our fans , our staff and players to play in Champions League .

“ The principal thing that we need to clarify , our fans need to know , when you ask me if I agree to win a domestic cup will help us to achieve the last level , I cannot agree . ”
