Mauricio Pochettino: My future? I don’t think about it…”

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino insists he is not thinking about his future, which will not be impacted by the Champions League final.

The Argentine has long been linked with a future job at Real Madrid having previously coached at Espanyol in Spain, and in his latest interview he underlined how Liverpool are favourites for the final.

“I have no goal, I do not allow myself to dream in the long term, football puts you where you deserve to be and as a Coach it has taken me where I deserve to be,” Pochettino told Cadena Ser, as quoted by Diario AS.

“My future does not depend on the result of the final, the project is five years where the goal was to put Tottenham at the best level in the world and play in the Champions League a year after finishing the stadium.

“We have been playing at that level for three years and it is important to know what the president and the owner think about the future.

“It is essential to know what our objective is…our plan was not to win the Champions League even if it sounds hard, our plan was to finish the stadium.

“The final? Liverpool are the favourites because they have invested a lot of money, they have signed a goalkeeper and a €75m defender, Liverpool's plan is to win the Champions League and Premier League. Tottenham's plan is to make the best season in history.

“We are enjoying the journey a lot, it helps that the preparation plan is three weeks from the end of the Premier League, because the players have bought into the plan and the ideas.

“Harry Kane? He is in good shape and we hope he can help, playing from the start or from the bench or supporting us in case he cannot be there.”
