Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham manager says club must 'take risks' to improve

Spurs beat Leicester 5-4 on Sunday to secure a third successive top-three finish in the Premier League. With our unbelievable fans, sometimes you need to be courageous and take risks.

"I think Daniel is going to listen to me, of course". Maybe you know me, sometimes I have insane ideas", said Pochettino with a laugh, before he continued: "You need to be fearless.

Spurs' progress under Mauricio Pochettino is being admired by even club rivals, and so it should be as for the first time in decades, the team will play in Europe's elite competition for the third consecutive season.

The Argentine, who is yet to win a trophy with Tottenham, has been linked as the potential successor to Antonio Conte at Chelsea after they missed out on Champions League qualification. "We are going to talk next week to create the new project", he said.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly indicated that he would like to make significant changes to his Tottenham Hotspur squad.

Many former professionals have criticised the club's wage structure which isn't high compared to the rest of the top-six.

"We need to feel altogether that we are special club".

"Still we need to improve one step more to try to fight for winning big trophies, but I think we are in a very good way".

Jose Mourinho was keen to bring Willian, 29, to Old Trafford previous year and, according to sources, the Brazil worldwide was open to the move.

"You're moaning left, right and centre and Chelsea as I know it if you get in a fight with the hierarchy at Chelsea, there is only going to be one victor and that is Abramovich". You can not create dreams thinking you are not going to achieve these dreams.

But Kane's second effort of the game restored the London outfit's one-goal advantage and that proved to be enough to win it. Until today it was so hard to talk about the future.

However, with other contenders either already moving to other clubs or in demand elsewhere, such as Paris Saint-Germain-bound Thomas Tuchel, the Blues may have to move quickly to find a suitable replacement.

He also wants to be confident his star men will be offered contracts, ideally ahead of the World Cup, before recommitting his own long-term future to Spurs. Today a guy like Kane, I don't know for much they can sell him, £100m?

"Only you know in football that everything can happen".
