Pochettino: Interest from Barca is not flattering for me

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino commented on the rumors about Barcelona being interested in his services for the next season.

While asked to share his opinion about being short-listed by the Spanish grand, the manager said.

“It’s a big list – 100 names. I don’t take this as being flattering.

“I just understand that we are at one of the biggest clubs in Europe – because, for me, Tottenham is one of the biggest clubs – and you can see that we play very good football, we have an exciting team and very good players.

“So it’s normal that we’ve called the attention of the rest of the clubs, of football people around the world,” the Spanish specialist added.

Barcelona current manager Luis Enrique announced that he will leave the club by the end of the season on Wednesday.
