Pochettino Dispels Rumours About His Future
New Deal Runs To 2023
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has put an end to rumours about his future by signing a new five-year contract with the club.
Pochettino is in his fourth season at the north London club and has secured Champions League football with a top three finish in each of his last three seasons with the club.
The Argentine had been linked with Real Madrid should the La Liga giants part company with Zinedine Zidane this summer, but he has instead put pen to paper that could keep him at Spurs until 2023.
Club chairman Daniel Levy said: “I am delighted that we have agreed a new, extended contract with Mauricio. We have been on an extraordinary journey and the times ahead look even more exciting as the Club enters the next phase in its history. Mauricio has fostered an incredible spirit in the team and has embraced a style of play our fans have loved watching. I know they will welcome this commitment by Mauricio.”
Pochettino added: “I am honoured to have signed a new long-term contract as we approach one of the most significant periods in the Club’s history and be the manager that will lead this team into our new world-class stadium.
“This is just one of the factors that makes this one of the most exciting jobs in world football and we are already making plans to ensure we continue to build on the great work that everyone has contributed to over the past four years.
“Daniel and I have spoken at length about our aspirations for this football club. We both share the same philosophies to achieve long-term, sustainable success.
“This is a special club – we always strive to be creative in the way we work both on and off the pitch and will continue to stick to our principles in order to achieve the success this Club deserves.”
As well as Pochettino, first-team coaches Jesús Pérez, Miguel D’Agostino and Toni Jimenez have also agreed new contracts with the club.
