Anything can happen - Tottenham star Alli uncertain of future

The news will come as little consolation for the Argentine, however, as May began with a damaging 1-0 defeat at West Ham that effectively ended Spurs' title challenge with Chelsea able to clinch the crown with victory at West Brom on Friday.

However, Pochettino has previously made it clear he would not coach Barcelona because he is a fan of their local rivals Espanyol, says the BBC.

Spurs have already secured a second-placed finish in the Premier League and sealed Champions League football for another year.

"And if that's going to be at Tottenham or if I have to leave it's just important I enjoy the journey and don't get too anxious about how it's going to end. On July 3, for pre-season, I will be here, don't worry". "One loss [for them] and a win for us and the gap will just be a point", Vertonghen told Sky Sports.

"It's about being more competitive during the season", he said. No one knows. No one can predict it.

"There is no buyout clause in my contract, I will stay here next season", he said. I totally understand but I don't know if I agree with him that it's an advantage.

In contrast, they won just one of four European matches at Wembley this season and also lost to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final at the national stadium last month, yet Pochettino is convinced his side can muster a renewed title charge over the next year.

"That is the point we need to analyse, to help the team to be more competitive and consistent during the whole season".

"For us, it's so hard because I think 80 or 90 percent of our players have to work with their national teams and the last game is June 13". With all the emotions, I have to say that we met a team that was full of confidence, well organised and they are having their best season.

Pochettino has received continuous praise throughout the season for the way Spurs have played this season, as well as particular recognition for the development of several England internationals.

Kieran Trippier (concussion) and Kyle Walker (ankle) have both been ruled out, with the latter still facing an uncertain future.
