What Mauricio Pochettino said about his Tottenham future & Harry Kane after losing to Liverpool

Will Mauricio Pochettino be at Tottenham next season?

In the build-up to Saturday’s Champions League final against Liverpool, Mauricio Pochettino suggested he could quit Spurs this summer.

Pochettino’s comments were made within the context of what would happen at Spurs if they won the showpiece.

As we now know, Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid.

An early Mo Salah penalty fired Liverpool ahead, while Divock Origi came off the bench to score in the second-half.

After the match, Pochettino was pressed to discuss his future in north London.

As may have been expected, the Argentine was keen to dodge that topic altogether, saying:

It’s too early to talk a lot now, so early. We need to assimilate that defeat. For sure we are going to have time to talk in the future.

The future can be tomorrow, after tomorrow.

Should Harry Kane have started against Liverpool?

Kane played the full match against Liverpool in the Champions League final.

But was that the right call from Tottenham?

After almost two months on the sidelines, Kane didn’t have the greatest of games in the final.

Pochettino was quizzed about his decision to start Kane against Liverpool, but the Spurs manager refused to admit he made a mistake. He said:

You are creating a drama and there isn’t a drama. He finished the game fresh. He didn’t score like the others didn’t score.

It was my decision and it was taken with all the analysis and all the information. I don’t regret my decision.
