Mauricio Pochettino insists he will not walk away from Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino has quashed rumours suggesting he will leave Tottenham by saying he will be at the north London side for another five years.

The Argentine has been heavily criticised after their 7-2 Champions League defeat to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich on Tuesday has left them battling to seal a spot in the last 16 of Europe’s elite competition.

However, Pochettino insists that he is fully committed to Spurs despite a few tabloids suggesting otherwise.

"It is a moment to stay all together," he said. "I accept the opinions. When you don't win, not only at Tottenham, this happens at every club in the world.

"It is normal that the game has created a lot of opinion and rumours, everyone needs to talk.

"But in the end, the only thing that happened is that we lost a game. I have no doubt we are going to stay together and find a way to be successful again, no doubt."

The Lilywhites boss added: "In five-and-a-half years, every single press conference we have talked about my future.

"I hope [because] we are still talking, it means that I am going to spend five more years here, at least."
