Mauricio Pochettino 817718

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has reiterated his commitment to the club.

There have been speculations naming Pochettino as Jose Mourinho's replacement at Manchester United, but the Argentine insists he is more than satisfied with the "recognition" he receives at Spurs.

"Tottenham has given me value.

"I feel happy here in Tottenham because I feel the recognition for our job. We feel that.

"When (chairman) Daniel Levy extended my contract for five years, it is because he believed in that moment and period, we are the best people to manage this boat and this club. It is recognition for us.

"I don't need to listen about what goes around. The most important thing is how you are made to feel in your home," he told Sky Sports.

Spurs remain a distant third behind leaders Manchester City and Liverpool and Pochettino cannot see the situation changing anytime soon.

"We try to improve but the way that we improve is not in the way of maybe another team.

"That is why our project is to be consistent in many years and try to improve every season, and we will see whether it is enough or not.

"At the moment it is clear that Manchester City is above everyone. It is City again and Liverpool.

"I think the most important thing is to keep going and fighting to be in a good position. Like many clubs say, to be in the top four is a massive success. And for us to be in the top four is more than success.

"I think the first step is to try and be consistently in the top four," he added.
