Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino spoke to the media during his pre-match press conference and addressed rumours linking him with the Barcelona manager's job, whilst stating his commitment to Tottenham, as quoted by the Evening Standard.

The Argentine's stock has risen in the game since he arrived in England to take over at Southampton in January 2013.

The 44-year-old has gone from strength to strength over the last three years, and has undoubtedly taken Spurs to an entirely different level during his time in charge at White Hart Lane.

And rumours have begun to circulate linking Pochettino with the Barca hot-seat (Daily Star).

But the Tottenham boss insisted he is happy in north London, when quizzed by reporters about the rumours linking him with a move to Spain, and reiterated his desire to achieve big things with Tottenham, as quoted by the Evening Standard:

"I can’t say anything about that. I am at Tottenham. I am very happy and I have four more years left on my contract. I am enjoying an exciting project. It’s true it is not an easy project, but I am very happy here.”

It could be argued that if the Lilywhites are to reach their true potential, and win major honours over the next decade, then it will be an absolute necessity to keep the Argentine at the helm for the foreseeable future.

But with him being so highly-regarded on the world stage, that will be easier said than done.
