POCHETTINO HAILS CLUB CHAIRMAN ON FINANCIAL STABILITY
Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino has credited club’s chairman, Daniel Levy for transforming the side into one of the most financially stable club in the world, adding that they can now relax from the fear of losing the club’s best legs.
In past years, Spurs have been forced to sell stars to bigger clubs – notably Luka Modric and Gareth Bale to Spanish giants, Real Madrid. But Pochettino’s men have all signed new long-term contracts this season. However, Spurs’ hot form has recently triggered speculation about the futures of Kyle Walker, Danny Rose and Dele Alli, and with the club building a new £750 million home ground, there might be reasons for Levy to generate funds.
The 44- year old Argentine, though doesn’t see reasons for alarm, has credited Levy for tying down players, thereby putting the White-hart-lane side in a good financial position. Speaking at a news conference last week, the manager said that: “no need to worry, it is not about money as Tottenham Hotspur are one of the healthiest clubs financially in the world and Daniel deserves the credit.
Pochettino’s side harboured similar aspirations last season but a disastrous run of results in the final weeks would see them surrender top spot to eventual Champions, Leicester city. With things back in the rightful order financially plus the great form of the team, Pochettino believes they can challenge for the title.
Mean while Hotspur leading striker, Harry Kane believes if they continue their winning run of six consecutive victories in the last six games, they can meet up with the league leaders having emerged so far as their closest challengers so far.
The manager recently denied rumours linking him to his home country top job stating clearly that his full focus remains with Tottenham and not anywhere else.
