More from Tottenham History

After the appointment of early favourite, Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, Pochettino appeared to be the most likely to take over at Tottenham. seeing off the challenge of highly regarded candidates who were linked with the post. Another manager brought in from Southampton, Pochettino impressed in his 16 months with the south coast club, taking them to an 8th placed finish. The former Argentine international defender has signed on to be the 10th manager of Tottenham in Daniel Levy’s at the Lane.

On making the appointment, Daniel Levy said in a statement which was posted on the Tottenham web-site,

"We have a talented squad that Mauricio is excited to be coaching next season."

This is a crucial time for Spurs – they can’t afford another false dawn. Pochettino has a talented squad of international players at his disposal and will need time to bring the team together with the backing of Daniel Levy in the transfer market and the full and consistent support of the players and fans in the months ahead. Pochettino comment was encouraging for Spurs fans,

"There is an abundance of top-class talent at the club…..We are determined to give the supporters the kind of attacking football and success that we are all looking to achieve."

Pochettino has brought in his own backroom staff from Southampton – Jesús Pérez (Assistant), Miguel D’Agostino (First Team Coach) and Toni Jiménez (Goalkeeper Coach) – who had also worked with him at Espanyol. If Pochettino can replicate the style of football played by Southampton last season, he will be well received at White Hart Lane.
