Tottenham Hotspur have made a number of brilliant signings in recent years, from Dele Alli in midfield, to Heung Min Son and Lucas Moura up front.
However, perhaps the most important signing over them all has been Mauricio Pochettino, the manager himself.
Poch has now spent five years at the helm of the Lilywhites, and the team is barely recognisable from the one he took over half a decade ago.
Previously on the fringe of Champions League football, Spurs have now spent the last four years in the competition, even making it to their first final last season.
The only thing missing from Pochettino’s reign so far has been a trophy, but fans will be hoping to see one next season if Spurs invest big this summer.
It seemed at one point that Poch could be tempted by a move to Real Madrid when the position became vacant in 2018 (Guardian), but he remained loyal to Spurs and Daniel Levy.
The Argentine manager has now revealed the three places he may want to manage in the future, but it doesn’t sound as if he will be breaking his contract to do it.
Poch said (Catalunya Radio): “I gave my word to renew with Tottenham. Of course, it is a dream to train a club like Madrid, go to the Argentine team one day or go back to Espanyol one day, but I did not consider anything beyond Tottenham at that time.”
