Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino talks about the mistake he made

Isaac Mcdaniel | 14 May, 2017, 13:11

Tottenham's head honcho's response about a potential contract uprising at White Hart Lane - given the team's success was pitch ideal - eluding to the fact that he won't bow down to any player that was seemingly happy with their respective deals earlier on in the season.

As quoted by the Daily Mail, he said: " When I signed here I understood the Tottenham project and Daniel Levy.

"No", he insisted. "Tottenham have a history and it is not important if we play at Wembley or the new stadium". The hard way is to try to develop talent and try to create a team and build a winning mentality, not only in the players but at the whole club.

"For us, it is unique". For the second consecutive season we have been fighting for the title and competing with teams with completely different philosophies or ways.

Poch led Spurs to fifth in his first season after moving from Southampton in the summer of 2014.

Spurs head in to the United game knowing Chelsea could already have wrapped up the title if they beat West Bromwich Albion tonight but Pochettino's men will still be looking for a positive result to secure second place in the table.

But Pochettino pointedly listed Chelsea's four summer signings, who cost around £120 million, and said Arsenal would be the champions if the manager's longevity was that important.

He added: "It's true maybe that we need some help to try to add always, to improve the squad, and help in that way".

Pochettino's battle plans for next season will start immediately after next Sunday's final game at Hull.

"I don't think there's any reason to think it will be easy because Manchester United are focusing on winning the Europa League".
