Mauricio Pochettino has committed his long-term future with Tottenham putting an end to months of speculation as to whether he would leave the Spurs.
The former Espanyol and Southampton manager has agreed terms on a five-year deal that will see him in a new era for the Lilywhites, as they prepare for life at their revamped White Hart Lane.
The Argentine boss suggested after Spurs final game of the season that he would consider an exit if the club failed to match his ambition, hinting that more financial backing was required if he was to be stay as Tottenham manager.
Following successful talks with the club chairman, Daniel Levy this week, the club announced on their official website that terms have been agreed on a deal that will see Pochettino remains manager until the summer of 2023.
Pochettino told the club’s official website:
“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.”
Pochettino has guided Tottenham to top-three finishes in the last three campaigns, but he is yet to get off the mark with any silverware since arriving from Southampton four years ago.
