Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern will be drowning their sorrows as they saw their side knocked out of the FA Cup semi-final for a second straight season.
Spurs were beaten 2-1 by Manchester United and manager Mauricio Pochettino appeared to be downbeat after the match, believing it could be another manager that could finally make them get past that stage of the competition.
The locals will be worried with the comments the Argentine has made, having said the same in two different interviews, however, Tottenham are thought to consider those remarks as nothing more than emotion and are insisting he will not leave the club in the summer, according to reports.
The Sun claims that a source close to Spurs believes the club had felt it was just a heat-of-the-moment comment, whilst they have no expectation that he will call it quits.
“It was seen as no big deal here,” they told the Sun.
“Mauricio was just talking long-term after a disappointing day for all of us.
“Nobody at the club expects or wants him to leave. He is still very much determined to continue what he has started.”
As you can imagine, after a nervy few days, the punters propping up our bar are happy to hear it was just heat of the moment stuff.
Tottenham fans in the Tavern will be hoping that the comments were just said out of frustration and hold no truth, however, Pochettino will be a wanted man in the summer so a number of punters will be hoping he will be remaining at the White Hart Lane outfit for years to come.
Tottenham fans – what do you make of Pochettino’s comments? Let us know below!
