Tottenham boss Pochettino hails 'massive achievement' after securing top-four finish

Tottenham vs Huddersfield Tottenham’s Harry Kane celebrates scoring their first goal

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said it will not be easy for Spurs in the transfer market, despite qualifying for the Champions League.

Tottenham invested heavily to lure Davinson Sanchez and Serge Aurier in August previous year, while Lucas Moura arrived from French champions Paris Saint-Germain in January.

Spurs have had a good campaign in the Premier League this season, securing top-four finish to book their place in next season's Champions League, as well as providing a positive account of themselves in Europe.

But Pochettino expects a hard off-season as Spurs try to compete with the likes of City, United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool.

When asked if guaranteeing Champions League football for next season is Pochettino's finest achievement, Kane said: "I think so, I think it is".

"The last few seasons have become insane, no?"

They asked to use the bathroom, but were turned away because they were not paying customers. Schultz said that the manager is that instance "made a awful decision to call the police".


The 56-year-old Frenchman - who was sacked by Southampton at the end of the 2016/17 campaign despite reaching the League Cup final and finishing eighth in the table - says he did not come in to replace Craig Shakespeare last October just to save the club's place among the elite and then leave. Then of course if you have a strong financial side you can go buy some players. This should be great news to Mauricio Pochettino and the clubs board members as it gives them a boost of confidence, and wards off the likes of Real Madrid, and Manchester United who are interested in his services.

"If we have time on the ball for Jonjo Shelvey he can make things happen".

"To be sure it is complicated".

"It is good that the pressure is off on Sunday, so, hopefully, we can go and play free and score a few goals". You never know in football. The team was complete, unbelievable with the fans, without the corner, remember, at White Hart Lane.

Pochettino's concerns don't appear to be misplaced as a new study conducted by British firm Brand Finance have found that out of the Premier League's so called "big six" clubs, Tottenham rank the lowest with regards to the strength of their brand, and they also have the lowest monetary value.
