Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that Daniel Levy will have a big decision to make about his future, and has hinted that it may come before his contract expires.
Pochettino is contracted at the North London club for another three years as he aims to continue building on his project that has so far seen a major transformation in the side’s fortunes.
Spurs have been charged from perennial underachievers into serious contenders for silverware under the Argentine’s leadership, however the lack of titles may eventually be his downfull after the club crashed out of the FA Cup to Manchester United last week.
Speaking in a press conference on Friday, Pochettino admitted that club chairman Levy will eventually have decide on letting him go or extended his deal.
“I think it’s an exciting project at Tottenham, different to other clubs,” he said, as quoted by football.london.
“I still have a three year contract. Then obviously a decision. I always say that football is always present. Then the decision is for the club, the owner of the club, or my boss Daniel Levy to trust or not trust in myself.”
Football Insider verdict
Tottenham currently have the best squad that they have ever had in the Premier League but major silverware still eludes them. Even a League Cup title would have been nice this season but Pochettino’s selections have played a major part in why they did not get further in that or reached the FA Cup final. Pochettino did not play his best team in games against West Ham and that is absolutely criminal for a manager who needs silverware perhaps more than anyone in the Premier League. Another season without a trophy and there may be some itchy trigger fingers in the boardroom.
