In just over four years at the helm of Tottenham, Pochettino has undoubtedly taken the club to the next level in terms of growth.
It may feel like slow progress, but Spurs have gone from the fringes of the top four, to Champions League regulars in a matter of years, which is no easy task.
The Lilywhites have achieved a top three Premier League finish for the past three seasons now, and they are bidding to make that four this year.
The only thing that still alludes the North London outfit is a piece of silverware to show for their troubles.
Tottenham have been without a trophy in over a decade, and Pochettino has never won one as a manager.
Spurs have come close a few times in recent years, reaching a cup final, multiple semi finals, and chasing the likes of Leicester and Chelsea close in the League.
However, major silverware seems to be the next step in the Tottenham progression, and Pochettino believes that in the future, his side could be as big as Real Madrid.
He said (Football London): “In the future? Of course. It’s like if you ask me about tomorrow I believe we are going to win, and I believe Tottenham have all basis and is going to have all the infrastructure to one day maybe be at the same level. It’s all about believing and building your history. If you don’t try and don’t start, it’s difficult, but that’s a normal process when you want to be one of the best teams in England first and compete with these big sides. They’re there because of history or because they’re in a different level today to us, for different circumstances. But I think Tottenham have all the infrastructure today, or is going to have the infrastructure to one day be a club that can be a contender for every single title.”
