Tottenham might not have won the Premier League title but they have done one good thing at the end of the season and that is to tie down Mauricio Pochettino to a long-term contract. Daniel Levy certainly has gotten his priorities right and keeping the Argentine at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future.
The signing does show that Levy is not messing around with the team and wants to build upon one of their best seasons ever in Premier League history and the side could still finish above Arsenal, not a bad result for only the second season under Pochettino.
54-year-old Levy has often come under fire for some of his wheeling dealing but this time, you cannot fault the man and it seems that this pair, Tottenham-Pochettino, will go on and achieve a lot but there are a few things that Levy must establish with Pochettino this season.
Open the purses
Pochettino has done an incredible job this season, especially by letting more players go and bringing in just a few others but one thing that Levy must do next year is back the Argentine manager and provide him more funds for the side.
The manager has been incredible and has made Tottenham a strong opponent but they need more quality signings and as long as Levy lets him have a sizeable budget, Pochettino should have no problem and Tottenham would be probably coming in the top four next season as well. They need quality in defence and maybe in attack as well, actually squad players and that can only happen when Levy gives him the money.
Not sell any players
One thing that Tottenham have been known for over the years is losing their star players for bag loads of money. Dimitar Berbatov, Robbie Keane, Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and even Michael Carrick, some of Tottenham’s best players left the club for some crazy money but Levy must ensure no one from the current pack are sold, no matter how insane the amount offered is.
Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele are just some of the stars that should not be sold. Kane has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and Manchester United but Daniel must put his foot down and not sell any of these players if the side are willing to do a repeat of this season and finish in the top four.
Continue what he has been doing
Most seasons Daniel Levy actually does say a lot about what is happening in the club and often says things which harms the side. This year the Chairman of the club has not said one wrong thing and has in fact done pretty well keeping the focus on the football and the players.
Levy might have understood what to do to keep the balance in the team and keep the fans happy. Pochettino is on a roll and the players trust him and also Tottenham might be one of the most balanced sides in the Premier League and only good things are expected from this young and hungry side in the future.
