Pochettino: It's Eriksen's right to do what he wants

Pochettino: It's Eriksen's right to do what he wants

Mauricio Pochettino says his goal is to win the Premier League and Champions League, believing he would be sacked if he did not field a title contender while winning domestic cups.

The Denmark worldwide has just 18 months remaining on his contract and has been linked with several of Europe's biggest clubs.

He said: "No news is good news".

"Football is dynamic; it's about interests the manager sometimes can't manage". But in our project at Tottenham we are completely different - if you say if you don't win a trophy, it's a failure. we have bigger things than to focus only to win a trophy.

"It would be fantastic if he committed to the club for a long time. If not, it's his right to do what he wants to do".

Tottenham are through to the fourth round of the FA Cup after seeing off League Two Tranmere Rovers 7-0 at Prenton Park on Friday night.

Pochettino has turned Spurs into one of the top clubs in England, challenging for the league title and progressing in the Champions League, but is regularly criticised for failing to win any silverware.

McCaw averaged 4.0 points per game in 128 regular-season appearances with the Warriors over the past two seasons. The standoff situation between McCaw and the Warriors has been the weirdest one to date in recent memory.

"Of course, many in some projects, in some clubs, if you don't win a trophy, you fail".

"I don't know (if he could leave on a free in the summer), that is going to be a club decision, of course involved with the player and the people that are with him".

"I think I was a different player at that time to what I am now".

"When you add that you need to finish your facilities, like the training ground or the new stadium, you add hard things".

"I think whatever personnel I put out will be strong enough to give Southampton a good game I hope".

It has been 13 years since a lower division club have beaten Spurs in the third round of the FA Cup with Leicester City winning 3-2 back in January 2006.
