Pochettino hints at exit if Spurs win UCL

07/05/2019

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that he could leave the club should his side win the Champions League this season.

Spurs have made the semi-final stage for the first time in the Champions League era but face an uphill task in getting to the final after suffering a 1-0 home loss in the first leg to Ajax.

Pochettino has admitted that winning Europe's top club competition would be a difficult achievement to top and could call an end to his five-year spell at the club should he manage to do so.

"To win in these circumstances this season, maybe I need to think about maybe doing something different in the future," said Pochettino at his press conference.

Asked if he was serious about possibly leaving, he said: "It's not a joke.

"Winning the Champions League? It should be fantastic, no? Close the five-year chapter and go home.

"We are living a dream. Five years ago when we arrived it was to reduce the gap to the top four, and then to have the possibility to play in the Champions League.

"I think nobody would believe we would be playing in the Champions League three seasons in a row and competing at this stage."

Tottenham have their chance of reaching the Champions League final at the Johan Cruyff ArenA on Wednesday.
