Pochettino still expects to be Southampton boss next season

Mauricio Pochettino expects to be at Southampton next season even if he was slightly evasive as to his future on the South Coast. The shock departure of executive chairman Nicola Cortese in January led to widespread talk of a meltdown at St Mary's, with many wondering whether the Argentinian would follow him out of the club.

"I do have one more year on my contract, don't I?" he said.

"That also doesn't guarantee anything in football either."

Pochettino's future is likely to depend on how his relationship with new chairman Ralph Krueger develops.

"Of course it is always nice to hear someone has spoken nicely about someone and I thank him for that," the Saints boss said.

"It is clear that this club needs tranquillity after all the upheaval that happened at the beginning of January.

"There are two months left in the league competitions, a lot of changes this club is going through at this moment and it is clear right now we need good words to move forwards in a calm and relaxed manner at this football club."
