The Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino voiced that he would resign from the post if Tottenham supports turned on against him as right now the pressure is mounting on the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.


Yet against Arsenal lost their premier league match against Manchester City by 3-0 goals, and last week in the EFL cup final they bite the dust against the Sky Blues with this same scoreline.


Right now Arsenal is sitting at the sixth position on the EPL table and they are 30 points adrift from the top placed Manchester City, in their last match the Arsenal manager faced booed by his home supporters and his future with Arsenal is now uncertain though he has another year to run on his contract, the German international manager Joachim Low and the Monaco head honcho Leonardo Jardim are leading the race to replace him at Arsenal.


On the other hand, Tottenham is sitting at the fourth place on the EPL table and they are four points away from the second placed team Manchester United, and also they are in the Champions League last 16, and they will face Juventus after few days for the return fixture.


The Tottenham manager voiced ahead of their Sunday’s match: "If your own fans didn't want you, there is no point to carry on working because you are going to damage first of all your company, your club,"


"They are important, the fans, and at some point, you need to go away because the club is always more important than any person.


"And if I am the point that creates problems between all levels of the club, I prefer to go away."


"For me, football is not a drama, it is a joy," he continued. "The most quiet I am is when we are going to compete. Of course, there is a lot of drama out of football. But football cannot be a drama. You win or lose. You are responsible and you are professional, but no drama."


"Football means joy, happiness and I want to enjoy doing my job and enjoy helping people to achieve their dream and it cannot be a drama.


"The first is to provide for your family a good life," Pochettino added. "I like things to do outside football, but my passion is 100 per cent football. If it absorbs my life and all my family are behind me, supporting me, football cannot be a drama for me or for my family.


"When I started my career as a manager I was 36, I said [to myself], 'I will be a manager and my limit is 50'. But now, I don't know. I don't know if I will be longer like Roy [Hodgson] or [Alex] Ferguson or Wenger, or maybe I will stop before."
