'I feel happy here in Tottenham': Mauricio Pochettino remains committed to Spurs despite rumoured interest from Manchester United Rumours have been circulating about Manchester United's desire for PochettinoHowever the Spurs boss says that he is happy where he is thanks to 'recognition'He has also said how much he enjoys the team playing at Wembley Stadium 

Mauricio Pochettino has reiterated his commitment to Tottenham despite admitting a top-four finish is probably the best they can hope for.

Reports have surfaced linking Pochettino with Manchester United but the Argentinian insists he is more than satisfied with the 'recognition' he receives at Spurs.

'Tottenham has given me value,' he said. 'I feel happy here in Tottenham because I feel the recognition for our job. We feel that.

'Tottenham has given me value,' said Pochettino, saying he feels happy where he is at the club

There have been rumours that Manchester United are lining him up to replace Jose Mourinho

'When (chairman) Daniel Levy extended my contract for five years, it is because he believed in that moment and period, we are the best people to manage this boat and this club. It is recognition for us.

'I don't need to listen about what goes around. The most important thing is how you are made to feel in your home.'

Nevertheless Spurs remain a distant third behind leaders Manchester City and Liverpool, a situation Pochettino cannot see changing anytime soon.

'We try to improve but the way that we improve is not in the way of maybe another team,' he added.

Mauricio Pochettino's contract was extended for five years, and will remain there for now

'That is why our project is to be consistent in many years and try to improve every season, and we will see whether it is enough or not.

'At the moment it is clear that Manchester City is above everyone. It is City again and Liverpool.

'I think the most important thing is to keep going and fighting to be in a good position. Like many clubs say, to be in the top four is a massive success. And for us to be in the top four is more than success.

'I think the first step is to try and be consistently in the top four.'

Meanwhile, Pochettino insists playing at Wembley remains a 'gift' despite Tottenham's prolonged stay at the national stadium.

Full-back Danny Rose this week voiced his frustration at the club's extended tenure at the national stadium as they wait for their new ground to be ready.

Many Tottenham fans seem to agree, with just 33,012 turning up to watch the midweek win over Southampton.

But Pochettino has launched a passionate defence of Tottenham's temporary home.

'When you love football like we do, always you hear about Wembley. It was always a dream to play at Wembley,' he said.

'I played there in 2000 with my national team at the old Wembley and it was a dream come true. Now every week or two to have the possibility to play at Wembley is a gift.

'For me it's about enjoying every day, going down the North Circular I think it is, when I look at the arch I say 'thank you' because every game I play at Wembley is a gift.'
