Tottenham Hotspurs boss Mauricio Pochettino refused to discuss his future after their UEFA Champions League defeat at the hands of Liverpool on Saturday.
Pochettino was linked with high-profile vacancies at Manchester United and Real Madrid earlier this year but speaking at the Wanda Metropolitano after the game, he said it wasn’t the right time to discuss his future at the club.
"I think it is not a moment now to talk too much. You can interpret in a different way," Pochettino told a post-match news conference.
"Some people want to be clever and compare me to different managers and they don't know that we are in a different project, in a different position. The people want to be cleverer and they want to give an opinion without argument.
"After five years in Tottenham, it was so clear the project and the commitment from our players was amazing – providing for the club, for the first time in our history, the chance to play in a Champions League final.
"Now is a time to stay calm and start to change the mood, change our mind and, for sure, we are going to have time to talk."
Spurs' surprise run to the European showpiece fell at the final hurdle in Madrid, with Divock Origi sealing glory for their Premier League counterparts after Mohamed Salah dispatched a second-minute penalty.
