I am more than happy with the performance. From Southampton, from Leicester too I was happy. Southampton and Bayern Munich, of course, I cannot justify the result. The result makes it to appear bigger things. Of course you cannot stop the comments and everything, but in three days how complete change. You know the perception. The most important is that it's clear that we are all together. We are going to find a way to win again." DURING PRESS CONFERENCE

- Story Text: Tottenham Hotspur coach Mauricio Pochettino dismissed any talk about his future at the club on Friday (October 4) and said he hoped to spend many more years in North London.
Spurs were hammered 7-2 at home by Bayern Munich in Tuesday's (October 1) Champions League clash but Pochettino said the defeat would force him and his players to work harder and recover, hopefully in Saturday's (October 5) Premier League game at Brighton.
The Argentine acknowledged Tuesday's defeat was hard to take, but he was not unduly worried about his team's form, even though they have won only two of their last nine games in all competitions and sit sixth in the league, 10 points behind leaders Liverpool.
