If you look back at Tottenham’s time with Pochettino, and even further back under the Levy era, they have made so many impressive steps off the pitch.

Opening one of the world’s best new training grounds, followed up closely by one of the most state-of-the-art new football stadiums in the world.

However, on the pitch, Tottenham have made huge strides too. When Poch took over, Spurs had only ever tasted the Champions League on one occasion, way back in 2011 under Harry Redknapp.

Fast forward to present day and Spurs will be attempting to qualify for their fifth consecutive year of Champions League by making the top four against this season.

They even made the final of the competition last time out, the first time they have ever achieved this impressive feat.

However, Spurs have now been without a trophy for eleven years, and Pochettino has never won one at the club, despite reaching multiple finals.

He believes that he needs a piece of silverware this year (Sky Sports): “My personal feeling is that starting my sixth season, I need to lift a trophy. Carabao Cup, FA Cup, Premier League or Champions League.

“I am not saying it is time. I don’t want to put pressure on the team or the club.

“But if you ask me personally, this season is not about finishing in the top four to be successful – although of course maybe that matters for the club.

“But for me, it is about winning a title.

“If not, after last season’s final, to be again in the top four and reach the semi-final of the Carabao Cup, it is like, ‘Come on!’

“You are always there but you cannot touch the glory. That is personally – me. My personal target, objective, aim to be successful this season is to lift a trophy.”
