Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stated that Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is doing 'extremely well' at the club.

Pochettino guided his team to a well-deserved 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Champions League knockout encounter on Wednesday night at Wembley. 

Despite having a number of key players in striker Harry Kane and attacking-midfielder Dele Alli missing, the home side produced a comprehensive second-half display to outclass their opponents. 

 

Nonetheless, Wenger was full of praise for his former counterpart as he issued some classy comments about the highly-rated Argentine boss.  

"He is doing extremely well, we all agree on that since he has arrived at Tottenham," Wenger told beinSPORTS. "There's a good mixture between him who came to Tottenham with his competence and knowledge.

"And that emergence of a young generation who have been educated at Tottenham. They met each other at the right moment."

Wenger left his post at the Emirates Stadium last summer after over 20 years at the club where he won numerous Premier League titles and domestic trophies.

Pochettino is yet to lift silverware with his players, but many feel given the resources he has at his disposal and what he has had to work with, he is doing an outstanding job.

Not only are they on course to progress through to the next round of the Champions League, but they are also comfortably sitting in third place in the Premier League table.

At this moment in time, they are five points behind both Liverpool and Manchester City, with the latter having played a game more and 10 points ahead of their north London rivals Arsenal, who sit in sixth place.
