The Argentine has transformed Spurs since taking charge in 2014 by ensuring regular involvement in the Champions League, but recently saw two chances to win his first trophy for the club slip away in quick succession. "And of course I love a big challenge", Pochettino said on Tuesday.

"Tottenham we have plenty of opportunity to sign, for different reasons it is hard to explain to you that we can't sign, not because we don't want".

"The [former] manager [Sir Alex Ferguson] always said, "Enjoy this, whatever trophy you win, you have just got to enjoy it".

Mauricio Pochettino caused a stir in the aftermath by claiming that finishing in the top four was more important than winning a trophy.

Tottenham, whose last piece of silverware came in 2008, have exited both domestic cup competitions in the past week, and Pochettino has been criticised for stating on Sunday that a trophy "only builds your ego" while Champions League qualification is the priority. "They told me, "We need your help to finish the stadium and the facilities". In the last four or five years we played in four semi-finals, one final - we try, we were close and in the last three seasons we are consistently playing Champions League.

"Tottenham we have plenty of opportunity to sign, for different reasons it is hard to explain to you that we can't sign, not because we don't want". "Of course, I see myself there one day". But right now, realistically, we're not there.

"I am going to try and deliver". "No, it's because we've done things to compete and to be at a higher lever, or closer".

Spurs still have no date for the move into their new stadium and are booked into the national stadium for all of their games in February. The club needs the help of the fans because they are the core and the soul of the club and this is a massive moment.

"The more you win, the more you feel good". "I've spoken to Jesus [Perez] about it - my right-hand man, my friend".

Pochettino does deserve credit for making Tottenham a consistent presence in the top four despite spending far less than their Premier League rivals. It's been one of the things that has prevented our growth. "It's an inspiration for everyone".
