Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham will not compete with richer clubs over huge wages

19 Mai 2017

"Sure the season so far was good and it's true when you don't win you feel disappointed because that is our ambition", Pochettino said. There's no buy-out clause in my contract.

"This is my first season and I found a lot of situations, a lot of players".

But Alli, who joined Spurs from League One club MK Dons in summer 2015, said: "It's important you enjoy the journey, whether I end up at Tottenham for the next 15 years and retire here". Could Dele leave for a super-club if he's really becoming a world class player? I will stay here, don't worry.

Michael Owen is Tottenham to keep up their strong form in the Premier League by beating Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night.

"All the players that we want to stay here next season will stay", Pochettino said when asked about Alli and Walker.

"They're a great side and they've got great players".

Speaking to Sky Sports, Alli added: "We're all looking to learn together, build together and be as successful as we can". Our performance wasn't the best for different reasons.

"We were so close again this season, but like last season it was not enough", he said.

Hueng-min Son has been used occasionally in the wing-back role this season so we could see the South Korean given a run-out against the Foxes. That 3-0 defeat for the Red Devils is the only time they've conceded in their last five Premier League games against Spurs, keeping four clean sheets. "That is why they won in the end".

"The only way to improve our mentality and create that feeling to always win is try to always play in that way, then you can lose because it's football, but with this attitude you can achieve everything you want". "Then it's hard to make up the gap".

But by positioning the Hong Kong trip at the start of the summer, Pochettino believes his players will benefit later on.

After their final game at Hull on Sunday, his squad will fly to Hong Kong for a five-day post-season tour. It's important to be humble and honest and try to look at ourselves [as a coaching staff] as well. I think it'll be the best stadium in England to be honest with you.

"Winning our last game at this home for our supporters especially really did make the day I think".

Kieran Trippier sustained concussion against Manchester United last weekend and is unavailable, while Kyle Walker has a minor ankle injury and will also miss out.
