Pochettino says he will retire if Spurs win Champions League

The Tottenham Hotspur manager believes winning the European competition would be the biggest thing he could do in his career.

English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur is currently playing in the UEFA Champions League Semifinal.

They lost 1-0 against Dutch Eredivisie club Ajax on the first leg, but they are hopeful they can manage to defeat the Dutch and qualify to the Final.

And if they win it, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino says he would retire.

“Winning the Champions League? It should be fantastic, no?” he told the Daily Star.

“Close the five-year chapter and go home. It’s not a joke. Why? Maybe I work with Daniel, sitting, working in a different way for sure.”

He continued: “Maybe I need to think a little bit to do something different in the future.”

“To win the Champions League with Tottenham, in this circumstance, in this season, maybe I need to think a little bit to do something different in the future, for sure.”

“Because to repeat this miracle, you know… But for sure, whatever happens, I go home,” he added.

“[Jan Vertonghen] didn’t suffer more than a cut on his nose. It was no more than that. His nose only. It wasn’t a big issue.”

“And it isn’t a big issue if he is fit and we give him the opportunity to play. I think he will need a mask but it’s not a big problem,” he said.

“It’s an exciting game ahead. The approach was really poor from our side in the first leg. We need to feel more freedom to play. We have nothing to lose. We know we need to win and try.”
