Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is looking forward to his team winning their last two Premier League
games of the season despite being assured of second place with the 80 points already, reports
Last season, Spurs lost their final two fixtures after missing out on the Premier League title, but this time around
want to finish on a high with the matches against Leicester City and Hull City.
Ahead of his team’s Thursday’s clash against dethroned champions Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, the
former Espanyol head coach addressed the media in his news conference on Wednesday and reiterated how important it
will be to finish in style.
“We want to win our last two games, that is important. We cannot change the table, but we want to finish well. To
finish second was a good thing, now we need to finish the last two games with a good feeling.”
Spurs have already achieved their highest points tally since the start of the Premier League.
Pochettino was asked about his future at Spurs and he responded: “There is no buy-out clause in my contract, I will
stay here next season. There are many rumours, but I am committed with the club, no reason to leave the club. I will
be here for pre-season.”
Pochettino also stated that Spurs need to be stronger in “in every area” to challenge for the title next season.
He said: “We were so close again this season, but like last season it was not enough. I am sure next season we will
try again to fight. We need to do better, be stronger, improve in every area to try to win.”
Tottenham Hotspur on Wedenesday revealed that forward Erik Lamela has undergone a planned procedure to his right
hip. The Argentine has not played nine Premier League matches this season with just one goal to his credit.
