Mauricio Pochettino has revealed he wouldn’t change Tottenham for any other job in the world.
After Spurs’ historic victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League, corners of the media inevitably began to tout Pochettino as a potential replacement for Zidedine Zidane at the Bernabeu.
“When you win against Real Madrid or have good results in the Champions League or the Premier League, it’s normal that we are in the spotlight if a big club wanted to change something inside,” the Tottenham boss told David Hytner of The Guardian.
“For me, it only produces a big satisfaction. I feel proud about Tottenham and I feel proud about the players. In the end, that situation happens because the players are performing well, scoring goals and we are winning games.”
He added: “I don’t want to lie. Always, I want to be honest and I say: ‘I don’t think about tomorrow. I don’t think about next season.’ Because it doesn’t depend only on me, it depends on many circumstances. And it’s so important to be respectful and prudent, cautious and intelligent.
“The most important club in the world is Tottenham. And it is the best club in the world. I need to feel like this and that emotion is real because I cannot be fake. It’s too difficult to create the trust if you don’t really believe and it’s not real, that emotion. Today, Tottenham is in my head 100%. Today, I do not change Tottenham for another position in the world because I am so involved, so focused.”
