​Pochettino admits rivals interest in Tottenham's star players

Mauricio Pochettino has told Tottenham's players not to be distracted by interest from other top clubs for their services.

"I cannot guarantee anything in life. The most important is to enjoy the present," Pochettino said.

"I am so sad, we have to enjoy the present and not think about the future.

"In the future we take the best decision for the club. After three years you can see how the team is improving every year and all our decisions so far are good.

"Trust in the club that we will take the best decision for the club to achieve, to improve next season again, that's most important.

"We care a lot about the club and now we must focus on the present to try to help the team and club to be there if Chelsea drop points.

"It will be special if in the last season at White Hart Lane we win the Premier League.

"In the next three to four weeks we must give our best, big efforts for all of us, for the players to try to focus, don't think about holidays, rumours, what will happen next season.

"I want the last three to four weeks the big effort from everyone to achieve. Then we can congratulate everyone and try next season."
