"We know it's a big objective, we know that if we lose the final we don't play Champions League, we know that", he said. When we're out there, we're going to try and play exciting football, press high like we do here and that should get the crowd on their feet.
While Tottenham rejoiced, it was a sobering day for United who are now likely to finish sixth in Jose Mourinho's first season in charge - a place below where they finished under Louis van Gaal last season.
In its 118 year history, White Hart Lane has seen numerous incredible performances and Pochettino believes that this one was "another great performance at White Hart Lane". It has been an fantastic stadium for us, especially this season having gone unbeaten.
Tottenham Hotspur's move to a new stadium can push them to join Europe's biggest clubs, manager Mauricio Pochettino said Sunday as his side bade farewell to White Hart Lane with a 2-1 victory over Manchester United. "It just shows the progression the club is making", he said. It's the next step for us.
"We play a different style to West Ham. Because with the training ground, the new facilities and the new stadium will put the team and the club in the last level in Europe", he added.
"What a way to finish", Kane said.
Chelsea were crowned champions after their win at West Bromwich Albion on Friday, but Tottenham had the ideal occasion to forget that frustration as they prepare to temporarily play at Wembley while the Lane is demolished to make way for a new arena.
"We have a very bright future, with a team and squad who are hungry to learn, win and get better".
"Of course, there are going to be rumours over the summer, but I think I'd be very surprised if most of us aren't still here next season".
The project's chief contractor, Mace, has now taken full control of White Hart Lane and will first bring down the North Stand before moving towards the South Stand and the "Spurs Megastore".
There was not a dry eye in the house as stars from the past were paraded on the pitch in an emotional ceremony after the final whistle.
The core of the side will move on to Wembley, though, and the next time there is a massive celebration like the one on Sunday, Kane promised it would be because the club had finally won something.
