Mauricio Pochettino has dismissed rumours he will leave Tottenham after Sunday’s north London derby with Arsenal.

There was speculation on the Social Media that he will quit on Monday but adressing journalists on Friday, the Argentine described the reports as stupid.

“What can I say about stupid rumours? After five years now I start my sixth season,” said Pochettino.

“I will not walk away after Sunday’s game. The most important thing is to help the team on the pitch and make sure the communication is clear. I hope that I can extend my life here.”

Tottenham are seventh in the Premier League after a win, a draw and a defeat from their first three games.
