Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino will keep all talks concerning his future on hold until after the UCL final as he seeks a clear plan for the club’s chairman, Daniel Levy.
Tottenham sealed their passage in the UCL clash with an amazing comeback win against Ajax, after recovering from 3 goals to 0 to end the game 3-3 and qualify on away goals rule.
Poch earlier said, before the game, that if his players came up with a miraculous win and won the UCL trophy, he might quit the club.
His words, “After five years, I will repeat, after five years, it’s a moment to close a chapter,”
“It’s not going to be the same on July 1 or 6 or 7 when we start the pre-season. It’s so important to have a clear idea of the project, the challenge that we’re going to have ahead of us.
“It was very clear five years ago that the priority was always going to be the stadium being finished and finishing the facilities here at the training ground. We feel so proud because our capacity to manage the situation – that is very difficult, how it affects the football side at different clubs is amazing.
“To have this capacity to manage both and after five years be successful, because for the first time in our history Tottenham is going to play a Champions League final and to finish the best stadium in the world. It’s a massive success. That’s why we feel so proud of these five years. But what is next? What next? That’s the question.
“What next and how we explain to you and what you translate to our fans, what we want for the future of our club. Of course you know it’s difficult for me to explain that. It’s a conversation with Daniel, I need to listen to Daniel, he’s the boss, the owner. I need to know what I explain to you and you translate to our fans.”
“The players, the staff, all the people who cannot put a face on but they are there working a lot. I want to reward them with our words because all that we suffer to arrive and live this dream and this happiness today at this amazing club, it’s priceless.
“Until today it was so clear. Our ambition brought us to play a final of the Champions League. No-one believed, if we said five years ago, in five years we are going to open the best stadium in the world and play the quarter-final and semi-final of the Champions League at our new stadium and then play in the final of the Champions League, you would say ‘what do you drink? I want the same’.
“But today it is reality. It’s reality because of our ambition, our capacity, the effort, that is why I’m not tired to repeat that our players are heroes. They need to feel the love from everyone at the club, of course our fans because of all the effort we are doing.
“With all the money to win trophies, to live this type of moment, that’s why I broke down and started to cry. It was an amazing moment. When you go back, we had very small dreams, but when you achieve one of the biggest dreams of your life, it’s difficult to keep inside.
“That’s why now it’s a moment to enjoy, finish in the best way and play Sunday and prepare for the final, which will be an amazing moment for all our fans. After the final it will be a time to talk a lot and listen. What next?”
