Pochettino wants to ‘feel the glory’ at Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino has said he wants to “feel the glory” at Tottenham amid doubts about his future at the club.

Spurs have made their best ever start to a Premier League season, yet chaos surrounds the club as the delayed opening of their new stadium has forced Pochettino’s side to continue playing their home games at Wembley.

There have also been rumours linking the Argentine manager with a move to Real Madrid following the departure of Julien Lopetegui earlier this week.

But Pochettino has dismissed the uncertainty. He said: “When I arrived at Tottenham, the first video I think Daniel or the people showed me was of Tottenham Hotspur, we are talking about the glory.”

“Yes, I want to feel the glory with Tottenham. When I watch that video from 1960 [Tottenham’s double winning side} I think always it’s a very emotional video but it will be fantastic to deliver for our fans and for all the people that moment again, to repeat it here with Tottenham.

“But first of all we need to finish the stadium, move there, finish the facilities here, be settled, make our stadium home again and work so hard to try to be competitive.”

Links with a move to Madrid have persisted throughout his time at Tottenham, but Pochettino has spoken of the importance of the long term.

“We work with a responsibility to create a long-term project. It is true that today in football is always about the present, about good results quick, as soon as possible and it is difficult to talk about project.”

Spurs will be looking to put their off the field turbulence aside when they travel to Molineux to face Wolves on Saturday.
