Impressive Spurs boss stalls on immediate new deal with title chasers

Mauricio Pochettino has revealed he is no rush to extend his contract at Tottenham Hotspur after what has been a wonderful campaign for both himself and the club, report the Independent.

The Argentine arrived in North London as a successor to Tim Sherwood back in 2014 and initially penned a five-year deal after leaving Southampton.

This season, the former Espanyol defender has led the club to within touching distance of a first league title in 55 years and all but certain to reach the Champions League next term, on a relatively tight budget compared to his peers.

Crafting a vibrant and energetic young squad, largely comprised of young previously unheralded talent, he has been lauded for the work put in at White Hart Lane.

As a result, he has been touted as a potential candidate for both the Manchester United and Real Madrid jobs in the not so distant future.

While circulating reports were suggesting he was ready to pen a lucrative £35m deal to improve his terms with the club, he has now revealed there is no rush for him to do so.

‘At the end you can see that nearly two years ago I signed a five-year contract’, he revealed.

‘There are still three years and three months left.’

He went on announce that he does not use an agent when it comes to negotiations and will deal with infamous chairman Daniel Levy himself in such matters.

‘As a player, I had an agent. But as a manager, when I stopped playing football, I stopped my relationship with my agent.’

‘I want to manage my life.’
