Pochettino to be rewarded new contract

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is ready to reap the lucrative financial rewards of his team’s exceptional Premier League season.

According to a report from Daily Mail, the Argentine tactician is now closer than ever to sign a new deal at White Hart Lane which is worth £3.5million-per-season, a £1.5million-per-year increase on his current contract that still has three more years to run.

The 44-year-old Spurs boss has guided this Tottenham squad into second position on the Premier League ladder and within touching distance of an historical first Premier League silverware.

The North Londoners right now sit five points behind surprise-package Leicester City with eight matches still remaining.

However, it is believed both Spurs hierarchy and Pochettino are in no hurry to finalise the deal, with both parties want to have 100 per cent of the team’s focus on winning the Premier League.

Last week the 3-0 defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund in their Europa League round-of-16 first leg seems to have only injected a new life into Tottenham’s title bid, leading to an impressive 2-0 victory at Aston Villa on Sunday.

While it’s quite clear that Pochettino would not like to get mired in such speculation of pay hike, it is worth nothing just how valuable it would be to retain his services for Spurs in the long-run.

After wandering for years in the wilderness, the Argentine tactician’s arrival in 2014 was exactly what Spurs needed. He has been able to bring stability to multiple levels at White Hart Lane – like everything starting from the training ground to the back office to the pitch itself. In contrast to the wheeler-dealer time of Harry Redknapp and the wide splurge after Gareth Bale’s exit in 2013, this seemed like a real progress in hand.

Add more to that, you will find progress that is sustainable. Rather than constantly diverting resources to find the next big signing, Pochettino has managed to re-install, with the help from head of recruitment Paul Mitchell and Academy Director John McDermott, a well-accepted culture which will continue to see Tottenham’s biggest players emerging through development and savvy recruiting.
