Mauricio Pochettino has held his press conference ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League trip to Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.
One of the most interesting lines that came out of the conference concerned speculation surrounding Dele Alli’s future.
Reports suggest Manchester City are keen on taking Alli to the Etihad this summer.
When Pochettino was asked if the 21-year-old will stay with Spurs, he said: “I cannot guarantee anything in life. The most important [thing] is to try to enjoy the present.”
Some might read into those comments a little too deeply, but ESPN journalist Dan Kilpatrick made a worthwhile observation about Pochettino’s words in the tweet below.
#thfc Bit of context here: I think Poch was influenced by what happened to Ehiogu when he said he could guarantee nothing in life.
