Mauricio Pochettino has decided to suspend talks about his future at Tottenham amid talks of a transfer to another club.
The Argentine guided Spurs to their first ever final in the Champions League, recovering from 3-0 down on aggregate with 45 minutes to play in Amsterdam to progress to the final on away goals.
However, he had already hinted about a possible exit if they win the Champions League this season as it would be too difficult to repeat “the miracle”.

Even though he didn’t repeat that statement ahead of the Everton clash, there are suggestions he may still move on which is a big distraction ahead of the Champions League final.
Pochettino did say via Sky: “After five years I think it is a moment to close a chapter
“It’s not going to be the same in July when we start pre-season. It’s so important to have clear ideas of the project and the challenge we are going to have ahead.
“It was very clear five years ago that the priority was going to be until the stadium was finished. We feel so proud because our capacity to manage this situation, that was very difficult, is amazing.

“But what is next? That is the question. It’s difficult for me to explain. I need to listen to Daniel – he is the boss.
“The final is going to be an amazing moment. After the final is going to be a time to talk a lot, and listen to what is next.”
