Mauricio Pochettino has claimed Tottenham’s new stadium, training facilities and youthful squad make them a club to be reckoned with.

The Spurs manager is convinced the new White Hart Lane home will “one of the best in world” when it is completed in 2018.

Tottenham are planning on unveiling their new stadium at the start of the 2018-19 season and will see the capacity grow to 61,000.

The £750 million investment is the club’s attempt to bring Tottenham on par with grounds currently held by London rivals, Arsenal and West Ham.

Pochettino believes Spurs’ new home turf will not only be better than their local rivals, but will top some of the world’s most prestigious grounds.

“We are in a very exciting period at the club,” Pochettino told the Sport Magazine, as reported by the Evening Standard.

“We have amazing facilities at the training ground, we are building a massive stadium – it will be one of the best in the world.

“We are the youngest team in the Premier League. All of these things are positive.”

Pochettino recently signed a new five year deal with the club in May which would tie him at the club past the date when the new stadium is expected to be completed.

The commitment from the manager, along with the five-year stadium plans have signified a turn of ambition for Tottenham.

Last season they finished third in the Premier League and remain unbeaten so far as they hope to finish ahead of rivals, Arsenal this season as champions of England.

In the latest Tottenham news, Pochettino tells Daniel Levy he wants more control over transfer business.
