Speaking to the media ahead of Tuesday’s game against Real Madrid, Pochettino is quoted by talkSPORT as saying: “I’m so happy. I enjoy my time at Tottenham, it’s a club with big potential, new stadium and facilities which will be best in Europe.
“And at the same time, to be a competitive team and win a trophy.
“Always it is up to the owner or chairman to decide if you’re a manager for a short time or long period.
