Nacer Chadli has given an explanation as to what has improved at Tottenham in recent years.
When asked what has improved at Spurs in the last years, the Belgian star said: “I think the training sessions are improved a lot. The group we have, we have a real connection with each other, a good balance in the group with a lot of young players. Young players are good because you still are hungry to win something. There has been a lot improving since I arrived, and hopefully we can keep improving in the future.”
Much of what Chadli has highlighted has been down to the work of head coach Mauricio Pochettino, who was named boss in the summer of 2014.
The Argentine is renowned for his hard training sessions, with a keen focus upon physical work to ensure his players can work for longer than every other team.
Whilst many players could be disappointed with such a situation - due to the prioritisation of fitness work - Chadli said the training sessions are much better now than they were previously, such as in his first season under the guidance of Andre Villas-Boas.
On top of that, Chadli has praised the group of players he is currently part of, having seen Pochettino remove a number of troublesome figures this past summer.
The team is now composed largely of a group of young, up-and-coming stars, who share the same vision and hunger to succeed and win trophies in the future.
Spurs have been praised for the work they have done this season, with many highlighting Pochettino as a key factor in this set-up. He has built a young team who are currently performing above expectations, and they are only going to continue to grow over the coming years under the tutelage of the Argentine boss.
