Tottenham Hotspur have today announced the news many fans have been waiting for, as boss Mauricio Pochettino has signed a new five-year contract with the club.
Whilst Pochettino remains trophy-less during his time with Spurs, they remain one of the most talented teams in Europe, and it seems like only a matter of time until they do pick up some silverware.
After the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester United, fans were concerned that Pochettino would be leaving the club, but he has shot down all of that speculation this evening.
Pochettino has signed a new five-year contract with Spurs and should be backed heavily in the transfer window in order to take Tottenham forward.
Tottenham fans have been taking to Twitter in order to react to the news, and many are excited about the future, feeling that Daniel Levy must have sanctioned major summer spending in order to convince Pochettino to stay, with fans calling for him to get the chequebook out for new signings.
Others are a little less convinced that Levy will end up giving Pochettino the backing he needs, with one fan claiming the deal was 'bittersweet' as Spurs will probably lose Toby Alderweireld to Manchester United, but most fans are seeing positive signs from today's news.
Fantastic news. Talks with Levy must've went well.— Stuart Kerrigan (@Eastbelfastyid) May 24, 2018
Pleased Poch has committed but he knows a good £8.5m thing when he sees it. I hope he lives by his philosophy and takes 'risks'. Drop stars when off form, play & embed best academy youth into squad. There are some good ones coming up. Buy wisely.#coys #thfc— Arthur Crown (@CeasarorRome) May 24, 2018
The best news I’ll hear all summer. Was quite concerned Levy/ENIC would not agree with Poch new plans that will include more money for wages/transfers but they have obviously backed their man and I’m ecstatic. The club continues to move forward #THFChttps://t.co/f2wRAkxlhM— Ricky Barnard (@SpursRick) May 24, 2018
He’s Magic!— J (@Mastermode33) May 24, 2018
However this is just the first piece of the puzzle. Pochettino needs to be backed with player wages and top quality additions to the squad.
The jury is still out for me on Levy!
I’m delighted Poch is staying on. #COYS #THFC https://t.co/tf9opuQVaA
