Latest Spurs news: Pochettino slams rumours of him leaving after Arsenal clash
Tottenham face rivals Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend, but there have been some crazy rumours doing the rounds.
Tottenham haven’t looked fluid this season but that can be down to some rustiness in the side. Spurs are also yet to see the best of two of their summer signings, Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon, as the pair is slowly brought into the team.
The manager was speaking to the press before the clash against the Gunners and refuted claims that he was going to walk away from the club (h/t Football.london):
“The problem is how it can affect things, we are in the business of football and it takes one negative result to create a rumour like has happened in this case. After the North London derby, I’m going to walk away? What a stupid rumour.”
The Argentine continued that this rumour had gone a little too far:
“It’s nonsense. There can be other rumours but this one goes too far. Of course I am optimistic. When we are training, when we prepare the games, of course you can work in a sad environment, you can work if you are not optimistic but you cannot work if you are negative.”
Pochettino targets silverware with Spurs
The Argentine added that the team needs to work hard for the upcoming game and believed Spurs would have a great season this time.
Tottenham missed out on winning the Champions League last season as we lost in the final, and Pochettino highlighted that he wants to win a trophy with the club.
The Argentine concluded by suggesting that one loss would not make him leave the team.
“I told you two weeks ago I wanted to win a trophy with Tottenham and because of one
defeatI am going to walk away. It’s not common sense.”
The loss against Newcastle was tough to take after the great result against Manchester City and hopefully, we turn things around against Arsenal.
