Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has pledged to remain with the club amid interest in him from a number of top European sides. The Argentine has been linked with a move to Inter Milan but the coach asks fans not to worry as he remains fully committed to the club.
“There are many, many rumours, but I am committed with the club. There is no reason to leave,” the 45-year old said reassuringly.
Inter sacked manager Stefano Pioli as they plan a bid to return to the elites in football. They want a new top coach at San Siro next season to manage their huge spending budget.
After finishing third last year, and getting his side playing the kind of attractive football that have made them one of the most searched for teams on www.livefootballtickets.com, Pochettino helped Spurs to the second spot this year. Inter have identified him as the man to help them to greater heights as they seek.
There was strong speculation that Inter would match Pochettino’s buy-out clause as it would be difficult to lure Chelsea Coach Antonio Conte who is another person courted for the role.
“There is no buy-out clause in my contract and I will stay here next season. You will see on July 3 at the start of pre-season, I will stay here. Don’t worry,” the manager added.
Since taking over, Pochettino has built an enviable young squad that boasts of the finest players in the Premier League. He weeded out players like Paulinho, Nacer Chadli and Emmanuel Adebayor amongst others as they all had run-ins with him during the grooming stage.
Pochettino now has a committed and intelligent team that love him in and out. The fans adore him as well and the management respects his decisions. He has promised to fight harder next season. Sooner or later, the titles should come in to establish his legacy at the London club.
