Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino not 'obsessed' with winning silverware

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said he was not obsessed with the idea of winning a trophy as he prepares his side for Wednesday's FA Cup fourth round replay at Wembley against Newport County.

Spurs have not won the top-flight since 1961 and their last trophy was the 2008 League Cup.

Under Pochettino, Spurs have challenged for the Premier League title for the last two seasons, finishing second behind Chelsea last term.

The Argentine also led Spurs to 2015 League Cup final, where they were defeated by Chelsea, but he believes the team needs more time to forge a winning mentality.

Pochettino named first-team regulars Harry Kane, Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele for the 1-1 draw against Newport County last month but is expected to field a weakened side at Wembley with one eye on Saturday's derby against Arsenal in the league.

But the manager has defended his rotation policy, denying that Tottenham would underestimate the threat posed by their League Two (fourth-tier) opponents.
