Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed he is set to sit down with chairman Daniel Levy to hold talks over where the club go next, something he has labelled a “difficult thing”.
With Spurs looking set to secure a top four finish, and therefore Champions League football, with victory over Chelsea on Sunday, the club will now have one eye on their future, with the other firmly placed on the FA Cup semi final against Manchester United.
Looking towards the future, Pochettino expressed his excitement for what summer and beyond might bring, but admitted it would be tough to continue the progress they have made during his time at the club.
He was quoted by football.london as saying: “It’s a difficult thing to move forward.
“We have to talk a lot in the club, with Daniel [Levy], and get all round a table and see what happens.
“I think after four years together, the club has moved on in everything: not just in football, but about facilities.
“Next season we’ll have a new stadium and it could be fantastic. I think many things. I’ll share my ideas with the club and see how we can improve.”
Spurs’ next game sees them take on a struggling Stoke City side at the Brittania Stadium, before hosting runaway leaders Manchester City, who could have already won the title by their visit to Wembley.
Football Insider verdict
Pochettino is absolutely right in stating that progress from here on out will be difficult, but that is just testament to the stunning job the Argentinian boss has done in his time at the club. Both him and Levy have executed their recent plans to perfection and now it is time for them to take it to the next level, with Europe and a Premier League title in their sights. It will not be easy, and there may well be some regression as they try to push further and further for success, but they already have a strong platform to spring off from. The squad is strong, the new stadium is on its way and European football seems secured. It is an exciting time for Spurs.
