Pochettino, staff extend Tottenham stay

Mauricio Pochettino and his backroom staff on Thursday extended their stay at Tottenham Hortspurs by signing new five-year contracts until 2023.

The Premier League club announced the deal on Thursday less than 10 days after Pochettino came close to issuing an ultimatum to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy by calling for the club to dramatically change strategies.

Pochettino, who has led Spurs to three successive top-three finishes in the Premier League, called on the club to “create a different idea” and said it needed to be “brave and take risks” in order to challenge for the top honours next season.

But in a statement announcing his new deal, Pochettino revealed he and Levy have spoken at length about the future.

“Daniel and I have spoken at length about our aspirations for this football club,” the Argentine said.

“We both share the same philosophies to achieve long-term, sustainable success.

“This is a special club — we always strive to be creative in the way we work both on and off the pitch and will continue to stick to our principles in order to achieve the success this club deserves,” he continued.

Assistants Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino and Toni Jimenez also signed new deals to stay under Pochettino, who has managed Spurs since 2014.

Time will tell whether Pochettino will get what he wants in the transfer window this summer, but Levy is excited for the future.

“I am delighted that we have agreed a new, extended contract with Mauricio,” Levy said.

He added: “We have been on an extraordinary journey and the times ahead look even more exciting as the club enters the next phase in its history.

“Mauricio has fostered an incredible spirit in the team and has embraced a style of play our fans have loved watching. I know they will welcome this commitment by Mauricio.”
