Pochettino makes major revelation about Tottenham project, fans will be delighted
By Matt Farr
Mauricio Pochettino insists he is not looking to use Tottenham as a platform simply to enhance his own reputation.
The Argentine boss has drawn the plaudits for his work in transforming Tottenham into a genuine Premier League title threat, but his fine work has drawn attention from Europe’s elite.
Barcelona are also understood to be keen in Pochettino’s services, with current Nou Camp chief Luis Enrique vacating his post at the end of the season.
However, following Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday, the 45-year-old reiterated his desire to continue with the Tottenham project, which will be music to the ears of Spurs fans.

But they will also be delighted at the relevation made by Pochettino that he signed on to be part of chairman Daniel Levy’s project, and that it is not about selling himself as a manager.
He said, as quoted by the Standard: “When I signed here I understood the project of Daniel Levy; the Tottenham project. We agreed we are not using Tottenham as a platform to sell ourselves.
“And we have showed from day one we wanted to work in this project and we believed in this project. It’s important to be honest with the person that signed you three years ago and invited you to a good project that you agreed to.
“It is important to be loyal and work together to reach the next level.”
Pochettino remains under contract at the north London outfit until the summer of 2021, by which point he will have hoped to have brought silverware to the club for the first time since their League Cup triumph in 2008.
He has led the club to back-to-back top four finishes in the Premier League, whilst also achieving qualification for the Champions League group stage.
