Mauricio Pochettino admits he would probably have quit Tottenham had they won the Champions League.
The Argentinian has been in the hot-seat since 2014 and led the club to their first Champions League final in the summer.
Spurs lost 2-0 to Liverpool in June’s Madrid showpiece – an outcome that seemingly prevented Pochettino moving on to pastures new.
“It was an amazing period,” he said. “After five years in a difficult project at Tottenham we talk a lot about perception and reality, how we fight and all the energy we expend trying to get Tottenham fighting with the best teams in Europe and England.
“Of course it’s always in your head, you never know. With the way I am, I am always going to prioritise the club over myself.”

Christian Pulisic said on Thursday that he does not want to compare himself to former Chelsea star Eden Hazard.
The United States international signed a deal with the club in January and has joined up with the team in the summer from Borussia Dortmund.
Meanwhile, Hazard has earned a move to Real Madrid and Pulisic has already been tasked with filling the void left by the outstanding Belgian given his position.
“Obviously he was an unbelievable player for Chelsea. I’m not trying to compare myself to him,” Pulisic said.
“I’m going in as my own player and I’m going to give my best,” he added.
Arsenal head coach Unai Emery aims to “reduce the distance with the other teams” in the Premier League this season after their 2-1 win against Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup on Wednesday.
Eddie Nketiah proved to be the match-winner as Arsenal made it two wins from two on their pre-season tour of the United States with a 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich.
After a goalless first half, Emery’s side took the lead four minutes after the restart when Louis Poznanski diverted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s cross into his own goal before Robert Lewandowski equalised with a fine header.
The match looked to be heading for a draw but young forward Tyreece John-Jules worked his way down the left side of the Bayern penalty box to cut the ball back for Nketiah to tap home two minutes from time.
