Mauricio Pochettino: Spurs must take risks to win trophies

The Argentine is understood to want assurances that Chairman Daniel Levy will back him with an enhanced transfer kitty and relax Tottenham's wage structure in order to attract more quality players.

Tottenham Hotspur were saluted at the end with a rendition of Barry Manilow's Can't Smile Without You when Mauricio Pochettino took the microphone and called the next tune. "You can see what he has achieved with this club".

"You need to be courageous", said Pochettino.

"We need to talk a lot with the club".

After four years, we need to assess that period and try to be contenders and win big, big trophies. "We need to think that our reality is different, and our fans need to think and be happy and support us, because we are not this type of club that is going to invest insane money".

The 30-year-old's current deal expires in June 2019 and the report claims Spurs are ready to listen to offers for the player, who joined the club from Fulham in the summer of 2012 for £15million.

But Pochettino replied: "First of all I need to speak to Daniel and the club". Being in that senior working environment every day can only help you to get better and I think when I've been given my opportunities, I've been able to show my improvement and help the team to win games.


THE pressure is mounting on Chelsea boss Antonio Conte - but who are the favourites to replace him when he leaves Stamford Bridge?

"Until now it was so hard to talk about the future, of course from now we need to decide the way of how we are going to operate in the future". This time, he was more direct, essentially demanding signings. "But tomorrow I don't know what is going to happen".

"In football, you never know", he replied.

'I repeat my last press conference, today 100 per cent I feel I am here'.

"It's not my decision to be here or not". I think the style of play is something that suits me and the players we have.

It's quite obvious that Pochettino himself would like to put some more silverware in the cabinet and to do that it's also pretty clear that he's going to have to be at a club that competes at the very highest level in the transfer market.
