Mauricio Pochettino wants to honour his contract with Tottenham
Tottenham face Red Star Belgrade in an important Champions League clash on Wednesday. Spurs lie second in their group, five points behind Bayern Munich after three games, and a win over Red Star will push us closer to the next round of the competition.
It has been a slow start to the season for Spurs with several disappointing results. We were hammered 7-2 at home by Bayern and drew against Olympiakos too.
Spurs lie 11th in the Premier League and are 10 points off the Champions League spots. A win over Red Star could give us a lift for the rest of the season and Mauricio Pochettino spoke to the press prior to the game.
The Argentine was asked a host of questions regarding the situation at the club and claimed he wanted to remain at the club till his contract. Pochettino was asked if this is the end of an era after the last time we played Red Star in Belgrade.
The manager confirmed that it was the same but added that he isn’t thinking of leaving the club soon (h/t Football.london):
“I hope not! We still have three years left on our contract and I hope to finish the contract.”
United eyed Pochettino recently
Although Tottenham’s season hasn’t been great, Manchester United are also in a similar situation. The Red Devils have struggled for consistency under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and lost 1-0 to Bournemouth in their previous Premier League game.
They were linked with Pochettino recently (h/t Daily Mail) and hopefully, we can keep hold of the Argentine for a long time.
