Tottenham Hotspur may be enduring a slightly dodgy spell in the Premier League of late, but their fans are basking in one of the greatest eras in the club’s history.
Not only have Spurs got one of their most talented teams ever, and one of the best managers ever, they also now have perhaps the best stadium in the country.
Tottenham have also been able to hang onto their best players in recent years, a far cry from the times of the Modric and Bale sales.
The only first teamers to leave in recent years have been Kyle Walker to Man City, and Mousa Dembele to China, but both were also partly down to Pochettino’s own choice.
While it may be tricky to keep the likes of Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld past this summer, fans can wipe their brows after hearing Harry Kane’s latest comment.
As always, the striker says that as long as Spurs show ambition and are moving forward, he has no plans to leave.
Kane said (ESPN): “I’ve always said as long as the club is moving in the right direction and showing the right ambition, I want to be part of the journey.
“It’s something you assess along the way. A lot of people look at it and say this is maybe the best team we’ve had, maybe the best team we’ll ever have, and the best manager, but it’s important that we have something to show for it.
“It’s not just, when we look back in 10 years, we had a great team. It’s, ‘Look what they did. Look what they won.’ The challenge for us is, can we keep going up and up and up? It’s going to be difficult in the next couple of years with the stadium and the finances.
“We [him and Pochettino] both want the same things. We both want to push and push and push, and work and work.
“We’ll just have to see what happens this season, and go from there.”
