According to Jamie Carragher, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has no reason to leave White Hart Lane for a “mad house” at Real Madrid.
The former Liverpool defender is impressed by the work done by the Argentine for Spurs since he joined the club and only yesterday the title contenders hammered Stoke City 4-0 at the Britannia Stadium.
Pochettino is reportedly a target for Real Madrid as he continue to have a remarkable season where Spurs are looking to win the title for the first time since 1961.
“Why would Pochettino want to go? Where would he go?” he told Sky Sports.
“Real Madrid, for both players and managers, is a dream but it’s a mad house, managers are there for a year and if they’re there for two they’ve won the lottery.
“What Pochettino has created at Spurs; the players he has got and the age of those players, one of the best training grounds, a new stadium being built to rival Arsenal and Manchester United – everything is there at Tottenham for a manager.
“If he wanted to go to Real Madrid in the future of course he could do that, but for him now he has got to win a lot of trophies with this team because they are very capable of doing it.”
The former England international believes that the Mauricio Pochettino led team will challenge for the title for many seasons to come.
“I have said many times that this is an unbelievable chance for Spurs to win the league this season, a chance that may not come again,” Carragher said.
“But the more I watch them the more I think this chance might come again.
“I’m expecting Chelsea to get stronger next season, United and Liverpool to spend, Arsenal to become better as those sides have had average seasons in their eyes.
“I was probably expecting Spurs to go back to challenging for the top four like they used to do. But the more I watch them, I think this could be a team that challenges for the title for years to come.”
Tottenham Hotspurs who sit second on the Premier League log are currently just five points adrift of leaders Leicester City with four matches to the end of the season.
