Tottenham Hotspur Announce Mauricio Pochettino Contract Extension



While Tottenham Hotspur have yet to win a trophy under manager Mauricio Pochettino, the Argentine has significantly improved the club during his tenure. Spurs were the last team standing between the Premier League champions and their silverware in 2015-16 and 2016-17, and the north London side has finished in the top three the past three seasons.

Today, the club announced that Pochettino has been rewarded for his good work, with a new contract extension that will keep him on the job until 2023.

Said Daniel Levy, Club Chairman, in regards to Pochettino’s new five year deal:

“I am delighted that we have agreed a new, extended contract with Mauricio. We have been on an extraordinary journey and the times ahead look even more exciting as the Club enters the next phase in its history. Mauricio has fostered an incredible spirit in the team and has embraced a style of play our fans have loved watching. I know they will welcome this commitment by Mauricio.”

Mauricio Pochettino himself said: “I am honored to have signed a new long-term contract as we approach one of the most significant periods in the Club’s history and be the manager that will lead this team into our new world-class stadium.”

“This is just one of the factors that makes this one of the most exciting jobs in world football and we are already making plans to ensure we continue to build on the great work that everyone has contributed to over the past four years.

“Daniel and I have spoken at length about our aspirations for this football club. We both share the same philosophies to achieve long-term, sustainable success.”
