Tottenham have had yet another impressive season so far as they find themselves with one foot in the last eight of the Champions League and in third place in the Premier League table.
While a title challenge looks unlikely after the loss against Burnley on Saturday, Spurs have still performed admirably despite not having added any players to the squad in the last two windows and having to play with the uncertainty of not knowing when they will move into their new stadium.
The fact that Spurs look likely to finish as the top London club yet again and also qualify for the Champions League for a fourth consecutive season, shows how far the club has come in recent years.
One person who has been primarily responsible for Tottenham’s change in fortunes is Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine is now rated as one of the best managers in world football due to the job he has done at Tottenham with scarce resources.
While Tottenham tied the 46-year-old down to a new contract just last summer, there have been rumors linking him with an exit. Pochettino was said to be Man Utd’s preferred choice to take over at the end of the season.
Former Manchester City manager Stuart Pearce has said that Tottenham have to promise Pochettino about the availability of finances needed to take the team to the next level.
Speaking to talkSPORT (Monday, February 25th, 8:39 am), Pearce said, “It’s difficult…I think that is all down to a conversation about what is financially available to take Tottenham to the next level and what he actually thinks.
“If Tottenham can make one or two promises and say listen y’know you’ve brought players through the academy, backed players in the academy, Tottenham when you look at them, you have to go right down the league to see the cost of the first eleven they put out.
“Harry Kane cost nothing, Dele Alli £5million, Trippier £2million, they’ve spent absolutely nothing on the majority of their starting line-up.”
