Mauricio Pochettino has said he will “100%” be at the club next season, although he was quick to add that things could still change.

Speculation had increased after the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester United following Poch’s repeated use of the same phrase in interviews after the game. The Argentine was quoted at the time as saying:

“Tottenham need more time with me or with another”

In today’s press conference, the manager was more straightforward with his answer:

“As of today, it is 100% [that I will be manager next season] because I have a three-year contract here. But tomorrow I don’t know what is going to happen.”

The news that he will likely be staying as we move into our new stadium was greeted with enthusiasm on Twitter:

Verdict:

His fighting talk before and after sealing qualification for the Champions League on Wednesday night suggested he has never really considered leaving.

The lack of a trophy may be a cause of frustration, but his words about the team being a long-term project always suggested a man who remains comfortable in his position at the club.

There will no doubt be additional challenges next season at the new ground, but it looks as though Poch is prepared to take this club forward for the foreseeable future.

  • A trophy would be great but I agree with Hugo, top four place and champions league football is where every club/player wants to be. Football is all about money and playing in the champions league provides that. Poch makes the comments he makes because everyone is on his back about winning a trophy. Playing in the C.L will hopefully provide the players with more money

  • One of the best managers we have had in my time/58 years supporting the mighty Spurs, do not forget he is young and still learning, if Levy starts giving him what he wants as in cash n players watch Spurs get even better. COYS
