Pochettino will not ask for a new deal and Spurs will have to offer him one

Mauricio Pochettino says he will not ask for a new deal and it is down to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to offer him one.

The Argentinian, who has worked wonders at Spurs, still has three years to run on his contract but was coy when asked about whether a new deal is in the offing.

Pochettino has been heavily linked with a move away and it goes without saying that Spurs would like to secure his long-term future, but as things stand, that has yet to happen.

Pochettino raised eyebrows in the wake of the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United by saying the project at Spurs will go on 'with me or another', and he was equally elusive this time as well.

"Am I going to sign? It's a question for Daniel,' he said. 'I am not (Arsene) Wenger or (Sir Alex) Ferguson who decides about their own future. I decide only about the starting XI in this football club.

"That is up to Daniel, does he want to offer or not? I am a person who is never going to ask to improve my salary or extend my contract or anything like this."
