Tottenham have once again qualified for the Champions League finishing third, but Pochettino is desperate to take his team to the next level and will now hold crucial talks with chairman Daniel Levy, where their plans for summer investment on players will be a key topic of debate.

They could finish third if they beat Leicester on Sunday in their final league game at the national stadium and Pochettino will enjoy their success before plotting a Premier League title challenge for 2018-19.

Spurs have a net spend of just £50 million in the four years since Pochettino joined the club from Southampton and their wage bill is closer in size to Burnley's than rivals Arsenal's.

Fans protest after Hamburg's first relegation from Bundesliga
Schalke had already wrapped up second place, but it was between Dortmund, Leverkusen and Hoffenheim for the remaining two spots. Hamburg actually beat Gladbach 2-1 at Volksparkstadion, with goals coming from Aaron Hunt and Lewis Holtby.

However, if the fans want to go a stage further and start winning the major honours they crave, Pochettino says that Levy has to move his "project" on by being willing to invest more in the team. You need to give your best every day and work with these fears that you can lose your job if you're not professional.

"We can not think we are the cleverest people in the world and that we will win trophies by spending small money", said Pochettino.

"When we work with all the squad we can not be thinking about anything other than the future at Leicester". We need to review things. "I think I have a very clear idea of what we need to do", he told reporters in his news conference after the game. Maybe I'm talking too much.

"Until today it was so hard to talk about the future, but from now we need to decide the way and how we are going to operate in the future". In this type of situation, with a club with our unbelievable fans, being courageous is the most important, and to take risks. "Maybe I should breathe".

Asked if he could guarantee whether he would be Tottenham manager next season, Pochettino's answer will not have been particularly reassuring to the club's fans. "Don't take this in [a] negative way, this always happens at the end of the season at all clubs, the manager speaks to owners, sporting director and chief executive to analyse the season and thinking how to improve".
