Pochettino wants to make Tottenham the best club in the world

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said that he has no plans to leave the north London club and is motivated to take the team to the next level. The Argentine had recently presented doubts over his future by stating that he could leave Spurs after the Champions League final but he has now dismissed the prospect of doing so.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, Pochettino revealed that Spurs have some of the best facilities in the world and he is keen on taking the club to the top of the ladder, he said: “Tottenham, for me, is the best club in the world. When we talk about facilities - this training ground, a stadium that is the best in the world - there is no better club. We need to make that step. Of course, we realise we can continue in this process, we can put Tottenham with the best teams in the world.”

Meanwhile, Pochettino acknowledged that there is much work to do on the recruitment front with the club going almost 18 months without spending in the transfer market, he added: "Still there is a lot of work to do but I am so motivated to stay in Tottenham and give Tottenham what they deserve.”

Spurs are currently scheduled to face Liverpool in the Champions League final next month and the match offers them with the opportunity to end their trophy drought which has extended over a decade. Elsewhere, they also have the chance to build the reputation and winning the Champions League would be a major coup in terms of attracting some of the best players to the club.

The north London giants were beaten by the Reds on both occasions during the recent league campaign but they can take heart from the fact that Jurgen Klopp’s side only got the better of them by a late own goal during the previous meeting.
