Pochettino’s future has come into question following Tottenham’s poor start to the season following their memorable run to the 2018-19 Champions League final.

Spurs were also humiliated 7-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League, while the club were stunned by League Two outfit Colchester United in the EFL Cup.

However, Pochettino said a dinner invitation from his players shows they are still behind him in London.

“When last week, you receive a text from the player inviting you and the coaching staff for a dinner only two things can happen,” Pochettino said.

“Because they want to say goodbye. Or because they feel that they love you and they want to show that they are with you.

“And I think it’s the second. They are not about to say goodbye to me. To say goodbye to me, say goodbye here. Not inviting me to dinner.”
