Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has insisted winning the FA Cup this season would not change the North-London side.

Pochettino’s side will play Manchester United on Saturday afternoon in the FA Cup semi-final at the Wembley Stadium.


But Pochettino, who joined Tottenham in the summer of 2014, has revealed that lifting the FA Cup would not be a big deal for him.

“It’s fantastic if Southampton, Chelsea, Manchester United or Tottenham will win the FA Cup,” Pochettino said.

“Is it going to change our life? I don’t believe, I don’t believe. Who needs it more, I don’t know. We are going to try and fight to win.”


“It would be fantastic to finish the season with a trophy. I don’t think it’s about need or not need.”

The Spurs, who won the FA Cup eight times, have lastly won the competition in the 1990–91 season.


Meanwhile, Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League table with five points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea.
