Artur Boruc and Mauricio Pochettino: Sai

Southampton goalkeeper Artur Boruc expects Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino to commit his future to club by signing a contract extension "in the next few weeks".

Pochettino's future has been the subject of intense speculation ever since chairman Nicola Cortese quit St Mary's in January.

The former Argentina defender refused to guarantee he would stay beyond the summer when Cortese walked out of the south coast club.

Owner Katharina Liebherr has put a new board of directors in place since then though, and Boruc believes Southampton is "stable" enough now for Pochettino to commit.

"You can see that we've improved, we're playing very good football and it's enjoyable to see us play," said Boruc.

"That reward should easily be in the minds of the board and I think sooner or later it's going to happen.

"We'll see what's going to happen in the next few weeks, but I think it will happen soon."

Boruc believes the players can help out Pochettino with their performances on the pitch as they push for a top-six finish in the Premier League.

"We can try to convince the board by the way we're playing," said the 34-year-old Poland international.

"That's all we can do, talking doesn't really do it, but we can help by playing well.

"We've just got to perform well in games and try to help him this way.

"I think it [a new contract for Pochettino] would be the sign of a stable club so you know, he's done lots of good things for this football club, and that's how it should be looked at."

Southampton take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday but Boruc does not expect them to suffer any fatigue from their midweek exertions against Benfica in the Europa League.

"We're professional football players and those kinds of things don't really matter," he said.

"You still have to train, a game has a bit more running, but in professional life it shouldn't have too much impact."
