Mauricio Pochettino has declined to say if his long-term future lies at Southampton, Sky Sports has reported, with the Coach only confirming he wants to stay in the Premier League.

Pochettino was hired by the Saints to replace Nigel Adkins in February 2013 and has taken the club to eighth in the Premier League table. Southampton’s success under Pochettino has seen his name linked to a host of other clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur, as well as Real Madrid, Monaco and Marseille.

“In football I am very much accustomed to living with these rumours,” Pochettino said at a Press conference. “I have been living with and hearing these rumours all my life, firstly as a player, and then as a manager. I am just calm. I am not reacting to these rumours.

“I am fully focused on the job ahead. My job ahead is these last five games of the season with Southampton to try and get as many points as we can.

“Tottenham still have a manager, I still have one more year on my contract. I don't talk about rumours and I'm focused on this job. I said back in January that, at the end of the season, I will be speaking to the club. The possibilities are open.”

Pochettino added that his intention was to stay in English football but offered no hint if that meant with his current club or a different employer.

“Yes, yes, yes. I would like to be in the Premier League, it is the best league in the world, and I'd like to be here as long as I can,” Pochettino confirmed.
