Mauricio Pochettino has sensationally hinted he could leave Tottenam following their FA Cup exit.
The 46-year-old has questioned whether he is the right man to take Spurs forward after Manchester United came back from behind to beat the Lilywhites 2-1.
It is the second successive season the North London club have bowed out at the semi-final stages, as the club seek their first trophy since 2008.
Speaking after the defeat, Pochettino said: “Tottenham need more time with me or with another, but the most important thing is to keep going and keep developing that philosophy that is fantastic for this club.
“I have no regrets. We try to learn always but it is difficult, it’s not about learning, its about having the capacity to beat your opponent.
“We are in a process that to arrive at to the semi-final and be competitive in the Champions League and be competitive in the Premier League and fight for the top four is not enough.”

The Argentinian has expressed his frustration at failing to claim silverware with Spurs, with the club on the fringes of achieving glory.
He added: “Everyone feels that we are close and still it is nearly to touch. It is the only way to reach the next level, that allows you to compete if not to win.
“Tottenham in the last four years we are building a very good team, trying to create a winning mentality and it is not enough at the moment.
“But Tottenham need to keep going in this direction and to create that winning mentality it is not about a few years.”
