Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino insists he still has the board’s support despite his team’s troublesome start of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur is currently in the eighth position of the English Premier League table in what has been a very rough start of the season for the Spurs.

But according to Mauricio Pochettino, he still has the support of chairman Daniel Levy.

“We maintain a very good relationship and it is extraordinary to have that support,” he told Sky Sports.

“I have always told him that, in addition to my chairman, I consider him a friend.”

He explained: “Football is not a drama, it is passion and we cannot separate it from emotions. But neither can we make a sport as fantastic as this one because of the latest result.”

“We must learn from defeats to be able to exceed our limits and that begins by accepting that you don’t always win and that the opponent also works hard and makes merits.”

“You must always react with dignity to the result, regardless of whether it is good or bad,” he concluded.
