Pochettino staying at Spurs, no buyout clause in contract


He now has 26, one more than last season when he was also the Premier League's top scorer, after a ruthless show of finishing which put Leicester to the sword.

Together with worries that some players could be lured to rival clubs, some Spurs feared the worst.

The Argentinian, however, dismissed speculation he could leave Tottenham this summer.

"But it's important we don't forget about how much we have done".

That is basically what happened on the simulation as all of Spurs' key players stayed for as long as Pochettino was at the helm, with Keita Balde - signed from Lazio in 2017 - the only major departure, joining PSG for a colossal £116m two years later.

"It's my second time this season and I'm thankful to my team-mates, coaching staff and so many fans".

Not only that, it was the record transfer fee involving two Premier League clubs and made Dele the most expensive English footballer of all-time, beating the record held by his City teammate, Raheem Sterling who cost £50m from Liverpool.

"There is no reason to leave", he said.

"Maybe some of the players we have an offer for and we decide to sell".

Pochettino's stance, however, will be a major boost for Tottenham as they embark on a season of upheaval next term and a temporary move to Wembley while the building of their new stadium is completed.

"There are unbelievable facilities here yes".

"We have unbelievable facilities but if some club is paying double the salary, then how can you convince them?"

Shakespeare could opt to make a couple of changes with one eye on next season but usual suspects Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez are both expected to feature. That is the reality. "It's down to the type of players that you buy". There was Dele Alli who chose to come here instead of to another club, but we took a big risk with Dele Alli.

It may mean that Kyle Walker, a target for Manchester City, could be lured away this summer. Alli will also be aware of the untold riches on offer from home and overseas.

Lamela, who has not played since Oct 25, is expected to be back for the start of next season and the club said in a statement that the latest procedure will not affect his recovery time.

Pochettino led his side to six successive wins in April - scoring 16 times and conceding just one - as the north London team threatened to push Chelsea all the way. If not they get injured, problems, get exhausted, and then how it affects our management is unbelievable.

The Foxes are unlikely to be in the mood for sentiment and will be keen to secure the points they need for a top-10 finish.
