Mauricio Pochettino hints he wants to stay at Tottenham to win trophies

"Sometimes the people take it wrong, my words".

"No, no, no, no, no. I wasn't really fully prepared to play in the Premier League back then but after training extensively with players like Davinson [Sanchez], Jan [Vertonghen] and Toby [Alderweireld] and against such quality forward players that we have here, I think I have learned a lot in that time", Foyth told the Evening Standard.

Spurs' only third round exit since the 2005/2006 campaign came five years ago when they lost 2-0 to rivals Arsenal at The Emirates Stadium.

"If you don't finish how we've finished in the last three seasons [but win] the FA Cup, I don't know if Daniel [Levy, the chairman] would have too much patience with me or is very nice and says, 'OK you're 10th in the Premier League, I keep you and even give you a new contract.' I don't believe that".

Tranmere Rovers have met Tottenham Hotspur on eight previous occasions but they are yet to beat the eight-time FA Cup winners. In that business there are different parties that are involved.

"Whether you change the team, and we were fortunate at Chelsea that we had a strong squad and could handle the change in certain games, but in terms of intention and mindset we went into every game to win and that must be the same for us here". Swansea won the Carabao Cup when we arrived to Southampton and today they are in the second division.

"If my ambition in Tottenham is only win the Carabao Cup or FA Cup, with all the respect for that, I think my ambition does not match the ambition of a club like Tottenham".

Spurs will await their fourth-round opponent after a full weekend of FA Cup action on Saturday and Sunday. "But in our project at Tottenham we are completely different. we have bigger things than to focus only to win a trophy", Pochettino added.
