reports suggest that Tottenham are preparing to offer Mauricio Pochettino a new contract in the summer that would see him extend his stay at the lane until 2021; effectively stopping any clubs coming in for one of the highest rated managers in Europe. Pochettino has been at Spurs for 22 months and still has 3 years left on his current contract but Levy is willing to reward Pochettino with all the success he has achieved this season in the league.
It is thought that discussions will not begin until the end of the season to stop the potential for any distractions whilst the team compete to win a maiden Premier League title. This decision is understood to be at the wishes Pochettino, who is hoping to be the first manage to deliver the title back to the lane since 1961.
By signing a new deal, it is a major statement to the other likes of Chelsea and Manchester United who are rumoured to be keen on taking his services away from North London.
Pochettino’s ability to bring through and develop young players who are hungry to win and building a team that is one of the fittest in the league has been key to Tottenham’s success since his arrival in the summer of 2014. Pochettino has managed 102 games for Tottenham since leaving Southampton and has an impressive 50.98% win record.
Let’s home that the man from Argentina continues his glorious tenure.
