Eric Dier out of Newcastle United clash with illness

Spurs players will miss out on lucrative bonuses if they miss out on the Champions League

"If you analyse all the context, I think it's an incredible season", Pochettino said.

But Pochettino believes money should not be the main motivation of trying to qualify for Europe's elite competition for a third successive season.

"I am sure disappointed of course if we don't achieve in the next few years a title - of course - but what we can not do is to forget from where we came". We want more. We're ambitious. "The people want to win, but we are the first that want to win, only we need patience to win". You need to compare everything season in context.

"The players need to feel the love because now arrives the decisive moment and, if you don't care about those players, now you are going to demand respect, focus and [for them to] play like this".

"For me it is like a marathon to create a team capable to win. It is 42km, a long-term development".

"I am sure disappointed of course if we don't achieve in the next few years a title, of course, but what we can not do is to forget from where we came from".

'But we are there, pushing hard and working hard, in fourth we have the opportunity to be third.

"It's massive because the Champions League is the best competition, with the Premier League, in the world".

Spurs may have finished without silverware again but Pochettino still described their campaign as "amazing". In November, I remember you [the media] said, 'Why do you rotate?'

"If you analyse this all in context, I think it's an awesome season - to have the possibility, with two games left, to finish third, I think it's massively successful". The team was complete, even without the corner [of the stadium].

"To play in the Champions League is the dream of everyone and for me, it's impossible not [to] give your best when it depends on you to win", the Spurs manager said.

"After, you move to Wembley".

"When you finish second and move to Wembley, there were a lot of fears because the Champions League wasn't great last season".

"Last night Eric was vomiting and had a fever and he needs a minimum 48 hours to recover", Pochettino said.

"Last season was ideal", said Pochettino.

"We hope he will be available for the weekend". The doctors are helping him.
