Tottenham Hotspur made it through to the Champions League final last season for the first time in their history.

Mauricio Pochettino has helped to change the fortunes of the North London side in his five years at the club having transformed the playing staff and style of football.

It hasn’t just been a big transformation on the pitch which supporters have witnessed.  

In recent years, the club have built a state of the art training facility, a new player’s lodge along with a brand new 62,062 capacity seater stadium.

The stadium development saw Pochettino having to see his players turn out at Wembley for their home fixtures for over two seasons which certainly did not help together with the club’s failure to sign any new players across two transfer windows.

Pochettino believes that Spurs cannot be compared to the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United or Liverpool who have all spent big money to try and get success.

Instead, the Spurs boss feels that what Tottenham have achieved on and off the field should act as an inspiration to other clubs who are looking to progress in a similar manner.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. What he actually said was that we couldn’t be compared to the other top 6 sides when we were in the phase of building the training ground, new stadium, etc. That phase is now finished. Therefore we are now operating in a totally different paradigm, to the previous 5 years, which he tacitly acknowledged.

    Therefore the ready made ‘excuses’ regarding budgetary constraints are no longer valid. There is significant investment, finally, being made in the squad this off season and the greatly increased match day and advertising revenue streams, will propel the club to a new level of financial self sufficiency, enough for us to sustain our position in the top four and to cement it further, potentially at the expense of Arsenal and Chelsea. Happy days!
