Mauricio Pochettino has made the bold statement that Tottenham are at the same level as Manchester United and Liverpool in terms of history, while also claiming Spurs have the biggest fan base in London.
The Spurs manager has destroyed rivals Arsenal and Chelsea by stating that his side have the biggest in London.
Spurs have been one of the best sides in England so far this season and are second in the Premier League table, just four points adrift of leaders Chelsea.
Meanwhile, they have also made it to the FA Cup semi-finals where they will face Chelsea on Saturday.

The Argentinian boss has revealed he wants his long-term future to be with Spurs and feels they are on the same level as English giants United and Liverpool.
“I would love to be here (Spurs) for as long as possible because it’s a club with history, a club that is the most popular in London, more than Arsenal and Chelsea,’ Pochettino told Cadena Ser. “I’m delighted here. Tottenham is a historic club at the same level as Manchester United and Liverpool.”
United and Liverpool fans may strongly disagree with Pochettino’s comments, with the duo the the most successful clubs in English football.
United have won 20 top-flight league titles, closely followed by rivals Liverpool (18).
Spurs have won two English league titles during their history, with successes in the 1950s and 60s.
Chelsea and Arsenal fans may also be furious with Pochettino’s comments as each side are vying to be the elite club in the capital.
The Gunners have slipped away this season under Arsene Wenger but will still feel they are ahead of north London rivals Spurs, while Chelsea are still the favourites to win the league title.
