"I am so happy in Tottenham and I'm so proud that Tottenham showed the commitment and trust in the way that Daniel Levy (Spurs chairman) showed me 10 days ago, and of course, we have a lot of dreams, we have a lot of objectives".
"I am not the best coach tactically, but I have other things", he said ahead of the final. "I'm not going to get involved in these things", he said when asked about a possible successor.
