Tottenham boss Pochettino: No need for an agent

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is happy to go without an agent.

Pochettino negotiated his current deal directly with chairman Daniel Levy last spring.

He said: “For me it was not difficult — I think it was more difficult for him than me because I am the manager and he cannot upset me.

“If we are talking about extending a contract or giving me more money, you need to be careful.

“With agents, you can say anything that you want and the agent will manage the situation.

“But when you are talking directly to your manager, you need to be careful as one word can change the negotiation or change your mind."
