Pochettino casts doubts on future, warns Tottenham

In the game, Tottenham fell behind when Jamie Vardy was unmarked to head Riyad Mahrez's fourth-minute free kick into the far corner.

Speaking for the final time in a season in which Spurs have secured a third consecutive top-three finish but saw their trophy drought extend to a decade, Pochettino feels now is the time for the club to change tact.

"People can speak, but for me I have no comments about speculation around me", he said. We can not create dreams that we are not going to achieve. We are a little bit disappointed and frustrated at not winning things but to do that we need to challenge big sides who invest. After four years, we need to assess that period and try to be contenders and win big, big trophies.

But Erik Lamela scored twice either side of having the shot that a luckless Christian Fuchs diverted into his own goal, before Harry Kane netted the victor after Vardy's second had levelled the score at 4-4.

'We can not think we are the cleverest people in the world winning trophies on small money. What we achieved, it's fantastic so far, but we need to create some different ideas.

"We can not invest insane money". "I don't know if the club will agree with me or not, but we are going to talk next week to create what I think we need to do together again, to try to improve". We need to think about reality. When you create that feeling, anything can happen in football.

"It's not just the players, but the club structure and the owners want to build a new training ground, new stadium and I think it's a young team, that started with a lot of young players, on the bench too, and I hope they will be the future of Leicester".

"It's insane to lose a game where you've scored four goals away", Puel added. "I think the club is in a moment where they need to take risks". "In this type of situation being fearless is important and you need to take risks".

"Last season, we finished second but it is not enough because we didn't win the Premier League", the boss said. We need to work harder than the previous season to be competitive again.
