The Italian media continues to link Mauricio Pochettino to the benches at Inter or Milan, replacing Spalletti or Gattuso. The same coach, however, does not think about it and only focuses on the current season with Tottenham.
“I read that in the newspapers and nothing else. You know how this world works and this type of rumor does not feed my ego. Others like to be on everyone’s lips but I don’t need that. It is part of football and if we are talking about interest from other clubs then I take it as certificate of esteem.
“Cycles must not be determined by time. Some said that my fourth year here would be the last one. Some said that my fifth year year would be a flop but it is turning out to be the best. In my case, this cycle will end if there are reasons pushing me away from here. I would step aside out of respect for Tottenham if I felt there is the need for a new challenge.”
