Latest Spurs news: Pochettino claims only a trophy will make Tottenham’s season a success
The Argentine missed out on the Champions League title a few months ago and is yet to win any silverware since taking over in North London.
The last trophy we won was the League Cup in 2008, and Pochettino is desperate to win a tournament with Spurs this season (h/t Evening Standard):
“A good season for us? My personal feeling is that starting my sixth season I need to lift a trophy: Carabao Cup, FA Cup, Premier League or Champions League.”
The Argentine added that he did not want to put pressure on the players, but claimed that finishing in the Champions League spots will not be enough:
“But if you ask me personally, this season is not about finishing in the top four to be successful – although of course maybe for the club finishing in the top four matters. But for me, it is about winning some titles – the Carabao Cup, the FA Cup, the Premier League of the Champions League.”
Pressure on Spurs to deliver
Pochettino has turned us into Champions League regulars and transformed us into a top side.
However, silverware is one of the barometers of success and Spurs have to break their duck under the Argentine.
Tottenham have been one of the big spenders in the summer and have strengthened the team. Pochettino did extremely well last season without any new signings, however, the new boys should help us improve.
Tanguy Ndombele looks to be a great find while Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon should be brought into the first XI gradually.
