Cape Town - Mauricio Pochettino was in jovial mood this week after claiming the constant talk surrounding his future is causing Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy consternation.

The Argentine coach has impressed since taking over the reins in 2014, establishing Spurs as UEFA Champions League regulars and Premier League title contenders.

Silverware remains elusive for the north Londoners, although it hasn't stopped the rumour mill from linking Pochettino with a move to a bigger club.

Real Madrid and Manchester United are the latest teams reportedly eyeing the 46-year-old, who was also thought to be a target for Barcelona before they appointed Ernesto Valverde.

Speaking ahead of his side's clash with Burnley on Saturday, Pochettino quipped: "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 history of course.

"Do I have to reassure him? No. It is like in football when the sporting director or the club president says, 'No, the manager is going to be here and we trust in him', and next game [he is] out.

"If you reassure something it is because you are thinking different things. He is a worried man because he is jealous about me."
