Mauricio Pochettino helped to completely transform Tottenham both on and off the pitch during his five and a half years in North London.
The team were coming off the back of two below-par seasons when the Argentine arrived from Southampton in 2014 and in a short space of time, he managed to turn the team into title contenders and Champions League regulars.
He managed to achieve this despite having considerably limited resources in comparison to the club’s competition and even though the team had to contend with playing their home games at Wembley for almost two full seasons.
The Lilywhites came one step short of creating history and being crowned the champions of Europe last season but a poor start to this campaign saw the club replace Pochettino with Jose Mourinho as head coach November.
BetVictor’s European Football Index has now studied the value of a respective clubs’ squad before a manager arrived at the club and how it had risen or fallen since to establish the impact a manager has had at a club.
The study found that Tottenham’s squad value had risen from £287million when Pochettino arrived, to a whopping £807.8million by the time he left the club.
That works out at £520.8million of growth or a 181% increase, one of the biggest increases when compared with other big clubs around Europe.
Spurs Web Opinion
Pochettino might have not managed to win a trophy during his time at Spurs but what he has done for us is worth more than one or two trophies as he has essentially helped us build the foundation to have sustained success in the future. Hopefully, Mourinho will be able to build on that and make us winners.
