Mauricio Pochettino insists trophies should not be the only measure of their success as they prepare to face Crystal Palace on Sunday according to Sky Sports
We of course beat defending European champions Real Madrid 3-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday, certainly one of the highlights of Pochettino’s tenure to date.
The article adds that under Pochettino’s stewardship we have racked up a second and third-place finishes in the Premier League however we are still lacking in silverware.
“With the project we have here and the philosophy and everything, it is completely different today, the Premier League,” :Pochettino said. “When you compare with the other teams that compete with us, for me it is a very successful period.
“If only [the aim] is to win a title, maybe it is not a successful period.”
The article adds that Pochettino has likened the current-day Tottenham side to that of Manchester United in the mid-1980s to early 90s, the early years under Sir Alex Ferguson’s management.
Pochettino said: “I always say the same when people ask me – Man United with Ferguson spent six years and in year seven won the title,
“I think we are in a different project and for me, of course, I would like to win because I love to win. I am a winner. I feel I am a winner and of course, I want to win a title.
He added:”At the moment, we are working hard and giving our best to try to achieve that but there are many things happening in the club and the project that make us feel that we are winning.”
So are we in a period before a Fergie-esque style dynasty with Pochettino or is that a thing of the past. Certainly would be fantastic to start adding silverware. What do you think? Will Poch do a Fergie and stay for a long time with similar success? Let us know your thoughts.
