MAURICIO POCHETTINO has revealed “worrier” Daniel Levy is “concerned” about losing him as Tottenham boss.

The Argentine was in relaxed mood after guiding his side to the Champions League last 16.

But Pochettino is being repeatedly linked with jobs at Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Speaking tongue-in-cheek, Pochettino, who signed a new five-year Spurs deal in May, said: “Daniel does not laugh.

“I know it gets boring but he maybe is worried, he is concerned. It is normal.

“It is not nice for Daniel to hear all that of course. Do I have to reassure him? No.

“It is like in football when a sporting director or president says ‘No, the manager is going to be here and we trust in him’ and next game out.

“If you reassure something it’s because you are thinking different things.

“He is a worried man because he is jealous about me! It’s normal, no, because of the rumours.”

Tuesday’s draw in Barcelona, which helped Spurs progress in the Champions League, has certainly lightened the mood.
