Mauricio Pochettino sums up how he feels about Tottenham in one word

The Tottenham Hotspur boss was very pleased with his players' latest efforts.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to reporters after his side’s 4-1 victory against West Ham United at the weekend, and he was succinct in his feelings towards his players.

Spurs have been very impressive this season and their latest victory took them to within two points of fourth-placed Arsenal – and extended their undefeated run in the league to 12 matches as a result.

Such is the nature of the Premier League this season that Tottenham have a realistic chance not only of finishing in the top four but challenging for a title that is anyone’s right now. After all, who would have expected Leicester City to be top of the pack heading into December?

In comments published on Tottenham’s official Twitter account on Sunday, Pochettino said, “It was an amazing performance and there is only one word to describe my feelings: ‘Proud’.”

As he should be, such has been this Spurs’ squad’s emergence this season with a whole host of talented youngsters making an impact for both club and country.

Next up in the league is a home clash with Chelsea and that will go a long way to showing just how far Tottenham have come…and how far they could still go.
