Mauricio Pochettino wants to spend “at least” another five years at Tottenham despite ongoing speculation over his future at the club.
The Spurs boss held an inquest on Wednesday into Tuesday’s embarrassing Group B loss at the hands of Bayern Munich which piled more pressure on the Argentinian.
Bayern blitzed the stunned hosts 7-2 with five second-half goals, four of which were scored by former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry.
Other factors, including rumours surrounding the future of star players, have led to speculation that Pochettino might be losing his touch at Tottenham.
However, Pochettino hopes he will be around in five years time as he prepares his players for Saturday’s trip to Brighton.
“In five and a half years, every single press conference, we are talking about my future,” Pochettino told reporters.
“I hope because we are still talking, it means that I am going to spend five years more here, at least!”
On his players’ commitment to the cause, Poch added: “I have no doubt the players want to always do their best to win.
“They play for themselves, for their families and then for the club and the coaching staff. I don’t doubt their commitment.”
