Tottenham Hotspur have nearly gone a year and a half without signing a single new player, despite finishing in the top four twice over the past two seasons and playing in a Champions League final.
Tottenham have been linked with a number of young English talents over the past 18 months, perhaps due to Pochettino’s track record of progressing such players.
You need only look at Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Harry Winks, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and many more to see what Poch can do to a young Englishman’s career.
Even the likes of Kyle Walker-Peters, Oliver Skipp, and Luke Amos are beginning to have increased roles in the Spurs squad.
However, one man who did not need Pochettio and Spurs to boost his career is Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
Sancho has broken his way into the Dortmund first team, as well as Gareth Southgate’s senior England side over the past season.
Tottenham were actually linked with the winger before he moved to Germany back in 2017 (ESPN), and Dele Alli has now been seen hanging out with his England teammate.
One fan on Twitter couldn’t help but get excited:
