Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino quelled concerns that he would be leaving the club this summer, by insisting he will still be in the hot seat for the start of pre-season.

The north London club have guaranteed a second-placed finish in the Premier League this season with two matches to spare, ensuring qualification for the Champions League for the second successive season.

Asked if he would definitely be at Spurs next season he said: "Like I said, you never know, but it's a fantastic club to be a part of".

If there is one concern amongst Tottenham's supporters it is that the club's best players might be tempted to leave for bigger wages elsewhere with Spurs operating on an extremely tight wage structure.

"It's important that I enjoy the journey I'm on, whether I stay at Tottenham for the rest of my career or if one day I have to leave and it's the right thing for me to do", he explained.

Kieran Trippier sustained concussion against Manchester United last weekend and is unavailable, while Kyle Walker has a minor ankle injury and will also miss out. It's good for us to be creative now, one more time.

Leicester spent over £55 million to buy strikers Ahmed Musa, Islam Slimani and midfielder Nampalys Mendy after their title winning 2015-16 campaign and Shakespeare said that it could happen again.

Earlier in the show, security guards wrestled a streaker from the stage during a performance by last year's victor Jamala. After the victory, Sobral and his sister attended the press conference at the International Exhibition Centre in Kyiv.

Spurs travel to last season's champions Leicester City on Thursday for their penultimate game of the season.

Tottenham's stars are good enough to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona - so Daniel Levy must start paying them like players of such calibre, according to Jermaine Jenas.

"For us, it's so hard because I think 80 or 90 percent of our players have to work with their national teams and the last game is June 13".

While it seems as though there is certainly a number of talented young players coming through their youth system, it will be essential to keep this group together moving forward too.

"He's been making a big effort to stay available and help the team in the last few weeks and I want to say that we appreciate it a lot because it's very painful for him".

"That's got to be the next step, lifting the trophy and having celebrations like that but with a title or a cup".

However, Pochettino is adamant that he wants to continue working with Spurs supremo Daniel Levy to see out his "project" with the club.
