Mauricio Pochettino to commit to Tottenham for one more season amid Chelsea interest

Poch, wanted by Chelsea, threw his future into doubt after Sunday’s 5-4 win over Leicester.

Although the Spurs chief accepts he got carried away with his post-match moments, he still wants assurances from chairman Levy before committing his future to the club.

Pochettino is one of the most sought-after coaches in world football.

Although he is reluctant to trade the goodwill he has at Tottenham for a controversial move to Stamford Bridge, he is desperate to land some of the game’s major honours.

Poch believes Levy has been preoccupied with the building work at their 61,000-seater stadium at the new White Hart Lane.

He has also complained about the lack of financial backing to create a team good enough to land the biggest trophies.

The Spurs chief, 46, urged Levy to “tell the truth” to supporters on Sunday after the club’s third-place finish.

Levy himself has never put his head coach under pressure to bring home trophies — and Poch is convinced his boss is content with Champions League football.

That does not suit the ambitious young manager and he wants Levy to release substantial funds this summer to improve his playing squad.

The Manchester clubs, Liverpool and Chelsea will all re-arm this summer and he will also be up against a new Arsenal manager next term.

Tottenham have handed Cameron Carter-Vickers a new contract.

The USA defender, 20,  is very highly rated by Pochettino, who will now decide whether to loan him out again next season or let him battle for a first-team spot.

Spurs could be short of a centre-back if contract rebel Toby Alderweireld, 29, leaves as expected.
