Mauricio Pochettino quotes
I saw, because it's a big list - 100 names! It's like if I go, I saw a list of 50, not 100 names, to replace me. Like always, I tell you. I know the business very well. I was born not with a bull, but a ball in my arms. Ball, not bull. I understand very well the business and you do, too.
What I'm trying to explain is that I know very well the business, the football. Because when I was born, it's true – my mum and my dad put not a bull, a ball in my arms. It's a metaphorical example to say that I understand football, the business. I understand that my name will be on a list.
I can only say I am happy here. I understand the business, I understand my name is on some lists. It is normal in football today.

I saw it's a big list, 100 names. Like I always told you it's a business I know very well. I was born with a ball in my arms and I understand very well the business. I don't take it as flattering. For me Tottenham is one of the biggest clubs. We play very good football, [have an] exciting team and very good players. It's normal we catch the attention of other clubs and football people.

It is difficult to fight for the Premier League if you show that performance, that lack of desire to play for a win. If you start a game like we start then it is very difficult.
It's going to be tough for both teams but we play at White Hart Lane and need to be aggressive. We will be very confident and will try to show we are better then them.
Chelsea arrive in very good shape - us too after the last few games. It will be a very tough game and a great opportunity for us to try to stop them and try to reduce the gap. It's important, I think it's important for us and for the Premier League to try to win and try to stop them and reduce the gap.
I am very disappointed with the result. It was a bad day in the office but we need to accept that.
