Mauricio Pochettino signs new Spurs deal until 2021

first_imgTottenham have tied down coveted manager Mauricio Pochettino until 2021 after the Argentinian signed a new contract.Pochettino has spearheaded a dramatic revolution at White Hart Lane this season, with Spurs running Leicester City close in the Premier League title race and securing Champions League football for next term.First team coaches Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino and Toni Jimenez have also agreed contract extensions.Pochettino had reportedly agreed the deal in principle last week, but set tongues wagging as he was pictured lunching with Manchester United icon Alex Ferguson earlier this week.That sparked fears among Spurs fans that United might make a move, but those worries have now been laid to rest with the official new contract signing.”It was an easy decision for my coaching staff and I because we can feel the appreciation of everyone here – there is no better place to be right now.” Pochettino told the club’s official website. “We have enjoyed a great season and we believe this is just the beginning.  ” We have a long-term project and huge belief that we can achieve something big here for the future.””This club has all the ingredients to continue to challenge at the very top in both the Premier League and in Europe and we want to be here to be a part of what I believe will be a special period in the club’s history.””We have seen Mauricio bring a tremendous spirit and ethos to our club and embrace the attacking style of play with which we have always been associated,” said Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.”He has built a squad of youth and experience and this season we have seen football played at the highest level – quite sublime at times.” Tottenham will finish second in the Premier League with a draw against Newcastle United on the final day of the season, unless Arsenal somehow produce a 13-goal swing in their season-ender against relegated Aston Villa.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
