Reports that Mauricio Pochettino would leave Tottenham Hotspur regardless of how Spurs fared in this weekend’s North London Derby were greatly exaggerated, according to the man himself.

Speaking ahead of Spurs’ visit to Arsenal on Sunday (Watch live at 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com), Pochettino lashed out at the rumors as “stupid” and said he’s not going anywhere despite a somewhat tumultuous summer and 1-1-1 start to the PL season.

“I am not going to walk away after the north London derby,” he said. “I will be here on Monday and Tuesday.”

But what about Wednesday, Poch (Tongue planted firmly in cheek)?

Wouldn’t want you to miss out just in case we’re wrong.
