Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has credited Daniel Levy for believing in him and says that the Tottenham chairman is the reason for his successful performance at the club.
Spurs have raised the bar in the last few seasons and have now managed to establish themselves as genuine title contenders, after agonizingly failing in their title bid last season. Tottenham painfully finished 3rd in the league below Arsenal, after being so close to challenging eventual champions Leicester City all the way.
However, this season, things seem to have changed a lot and Spurs are 7 points behind leaders Chelsea, and are in with a glimmer of hope to chase the Blues down. More importantly, Arsenal finally look set to finish below Tottenham and Spurs finishing above Arsenal will surely mark a shift in power and the remarkable rise of Tottenham Hotspur under Mauricio Pochettino.
The Argentine manager seems to be thriving in the confidence that Levy has shown in him and has rightfully so, credited the Tottenham chairman for it. Pochettino said:
“He deserves a lot of credit. We had a difficult relationship at the start but we built a strong one. Tottenham are growing up and if I am doing well, it is because he believed in me and brought me here.”
Tottenham are making progress off the pitch as well, with the Northumberland Development Project going on in full flow. Whether or not this will be Tottenham’s last season at the historic White Hart Lane is unknown, but they have made the stadium a fortress. Spurs are unbeaten at home this season in the league and have accumulated 44 points from a possible 48. They have played 16 games at home this season so far and have won 14 of them.
Teams are beginning to fear to visit White Hart Lane and Tottenham are firmly establishing themselves as one of the best in England.
The new stadium that is under construction is surely set to be a quality one and has some amazing features with world class facilities. The new stadium will have a seating capacity more than that of Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium and will have 9 floors. The stadium also will have the largest single-tier stand with 17,000 seats, and will only be 5 metres away from the goal-line, making the match experience for fans an unbelievable one.
It all looks good for Tottenham from here and times might have finally changed!
