The Tottenham Hotspur hierarchy are confident that manager Mauricio Pochettino will reject any potential advances from Real Madrid, according to The Mirror.

The Spurs boss has revolutionised the North London club’s fortunes since taking over in 2014, with the Argentine leading the Lilywhites to third and second-placed Premier League finishes.

Tottenham have had a great last fortnight under Pochettino, with seven points from a possible nine in tough games against Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

A 1-0 win in the North London Derby on Saturday propels Spurs up to third in the Premier League standings, while a glamour tie against Italian giants Juventus is next on the agenda in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Pochettino has been heavily linked with a move to Madrid should Zinedine Zidane be sacked, with Tottenham beating the Spanish giants 3-1 at Wembley earlier this season.

However, The Mirror state that the Spurs hierarchy believe their manager would spurn the chance to join the Santiago Bernabeu outfit in favour of continuing his project in North London.

Tottenham are set to move into a new stadium next season and have a sublime squad of players at Pochettino’s disposal – but the team’s chances of success look to depend on the Argentine committing his future to the club.
