Mauricio Pochettino has said that his aim is for Tottenham Hotspur to become one of the giants in world football.
Over the past few weeks, the newspapers have been full of rumours linking Tottenham’s star players with a move away from the club. Something which Pochettino believes doesn’t happen to the likes of Manchester United due to the size of their club.
Instead, the boss wants Tottenham to be able to attract the elite level of player to the club, rather than us having to fear about the likes of Walker, Rose, Alderweireld, Dele and Kane departing from N17.
“We want to move the club to the last level,” Pochettino said.
“At the moment if we are capable of moving the club in the next few years to the last level you will see maybe the rumours will stop because when you compare Tottenham to – I don’t know I want to be very respectful – to Manchester United or this type of club, you do not see the same sort of rumours as down here.
“Why? I think you know and we know, it is not a moment to talk but that is the situation. The real situation is we are working so hard.
“I try to explain to you that there is a lot of pride, because he (Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy) is the first who is creating a massive club for us and the fans because he is thinking to move – in the next few years – the club into the last level.
“And then of course in our signings we are creating a new team that in the new stadium – and with the new facilities – Tottenham will be one of the best teams in the world.”
