David Ginola predicts a big move from Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy

Daniel Levy

The French former Spurs star believes that Mauricio Pochettino should be handed a new deal.

Times are good at Tottenham Hotspur. The club are battling for the Premier League title as well as the FA Cup and Europa League. They also have a heap of talented young players coming through the ranks and a new stadium on the way.

Of course the catalyst for it all appears to be the manager. Mauricio Pochettino has the team playing magnificently at the moment and he is bringing through some top talent at the club.

His performances at the club have seen him linked with other teams, much to the fear of Spurs fans, who have grown to love him.

Now one former Tottenham Hotspur player has been discussing their season. Speaking to Sky Sports' Soccer AM this weekend David Ginola made it clear that the Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy must hand Poch a new deal as soon as possible:

"I think Daniel Levy is, even if he does not smile much in the stands, I think he is very clever.

"What he is doing at Spurs right now, what he must do, is secure Mauricio Pochettino's job for the next five years.

"The next five years are crucial for Spurs.

"Keeping the manager will show stability. A football club needs stability to bring success. You can't win trophies year-in year-out if you change managers every two years.

"This is why I think Daniel Levy will do so because he can see the strategy behind that."

Those were strong words for the Tottenham Hotspur chairman from Ginola. He clearly feels that Spurs' current main priority is to secure Poch to a new and secure long-term deal at Spurs - to show coveting eyes that he is going nowhere.

Hopefully Spurs can keep hold of the Argentine and build something special at White Hart Lane.
