Tottenham Hotspur have been without silverware for over a decade now, with their last major win coming back in 2008 when they bested Chelsea in the Carling Cup Final.

Since then, Spurs have lost a number of cup finals, as well as narrowly missing out on multiple League campaigns.

However, the club have undoubtedly come a long way since Pochettino took over, with the Argentine transforming Tottenham into a Champions League regular.

The next step in the club’s evolution should be consistently winning trophies, but the manager may need additional funding to achieve this.

When asked about his future in his latest press conference, Pochettino said that he sees his future with the Lilywhites, but does not want to end his reign in the same way as Wenger at Arsenal.

Poch said (Independent): “I have massive, huge respect for Arsene Wenger because when you talk about 22 years in charge of a club like Arsenal and all that happened in that period, you need to be so good.

“Not only a fantastic coach but a great human being to display the values you have. It’s amazing.

“That is why it is a little bit sad the way it ended at his club. It shows how difficult it is this business a business it is a passion.

“All that Arsene Wenger gave for Arsenal, to finish in the way it finished, yes, was a little bit unfair. And I think he deserves an amazing recognition about his work.

“Only I hope, if I have the opportunity to talk with him is to ask if, ‘Was it worth it to do?’, I don’t know what he would say, I would like to ask one day.”

Pochettino also claimed that Tottenham Hotspur was one of the most exciting jobs in football at the moment, and they are sure to win trophies in the future, with or without him.

Poch said: “Daniel Levy is creating a legacy that is going to be amazing for the club,” he said. “I can see in the future Tottenham winning trophies.

“I don’t know if that will be with us, without us, in one year, in five years.

“But all the foundations are down for one day to start to win titles and be like another successful club.

“But its difficult for the people because the people are talking about today, today, today. But the vision of the future is that Tottenham are going to be one of the most exciting clubs in the world.

“Not only in England. In the world and that is sometimes difficult to tell you but that is why I think Daniel Levy deserves [credit].

“I am so focused here, and want to help the club to achieve what the club want to be in history, because we are helping the club to finish all the facilities and maybe we can win in that way.

“It would be fantastic. I am so happy to be here. I am so happy to work in that pressure. Why not.”
