Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham manager says club must 'take risks' to improve


Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Dawson said: "Man City are, in my opinion, untouchable".

Kane tried his best but Salah rules as Chelsea stumble while City reach 100 point mark Aclassic end-of-season sizzler saw Tottenham say farewell to their temporary Wembley home by coming back from 3-1down to beat Leicester City 5-4 and secure third place in the Premier League.

Tottenham finished third - the highest side in London - but failed to win a trophy again. But, on the pitch, they have continued to compete against the big-spending Manchester clubs as well as Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal. It's not important. The most important thing is what the club thinks, not you or the speculation about me. It is the moment in which the club needs to take risks.

Pochettino, who is yet to win a trophy in his four years at Spurs, has refused to rule out the possibility of leaving this summer.

"The contract is great news but now I need to focus on pushing on again".

Rose's future has been in doubt ever since his explosive interview last summer in which he criticised Tottenham's transfer policy and wage structure.

Pochettino wants to know he will be given the funds to bring in the players he wants and the freedom to sell those he feels he can replace, as he tries to transform Spurs into winners.

"We need to talk a lot between us and the club". I have a very clear idea of what we need to do.

But Pochettino replied: "First of all I need to speak to Daniel and the club". Until today it was so hard to talk about the future. This time, he was more direct, essentially demanding signings.

"And eventually the biggest stars that are there are going to demand the money they know they can get elsewhere, and the hierarchy at Spurs have to make sure they pay it to keep hold of them".

"It's not my decision to be here or not".

"I think Daniel is going to listen, of course".

"You need to give your best every day and work with these fears that you can lose your job if you're not professional".
