Mauricio Pochettino has refused to confirm if he will sign a new contract with Tottenham, insisting the decision is up to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.
Spurs are yet to win a trophy since Pochettino arrived at the club in the summer of 2014, but Champions League qualification is in their hands for a third successive season.
Pochettino has three years remaining on his current deal, and reports suggest the club will offer him a new contract in the near future, along with a number of key players.
After the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester United earlier this month, Pochettino claimed Tottenham’s project won’t change regardless of who is at the helm, comments he was forced to clarify last week.
Ahead of Monday’s Premier League encounter with Watford, the Argentinian spoke again about the possibility of signing a new deal.
“Am I going to sign? It’s a question for Daniel [Levy],” he said (via Sky Sports).
“I am a person who is never going to ask to improve my salary or extend my contract, or anything like this.”
Many media outlets have already framed Pochettino’s words to cast doubt over his future – I’m not sure that’s the case.
I think it’s obvious Spurs want him for to be in charge for the long-term, and Pochettino is simply being realistic about who decides his future.
