Report: Tottenham back Pochettino with £30m investment, will majorly impact first team
By Russell Edge
Tottenham have supported Mauricio Pochettino’s plans by committing to building a £30million hotel next to the club’s training ground according to a report.
The Guardian claim on their website that the hotel, or private player accommodation lodge as is its official title, will be able to sleep 45 of the club’s players and will be completed in the Spring of 2018.
The report states that it was the manager’s thinking to build the accommodation to help with the recovery of players’ fitness after matches, especially away ties, and will provide the optimum surroundings to ensure the squad are prepared for their training sessions.
It will provide space for the players to rest before and after sessions as well as between double training drills, and will feature a medical sections which will have the resources necessary for rehabilitation, such as a hydrotherapy facility.
It is believed to copy a similar approach used by Premier League rivals Manchester City at their Etihad campus, as well as Tottenham’s Champions League opponents Real Madrid.

It is said that Pochettino has an obsession on ensuring every minute detail that could provide an advantage is met, and believes the new accommodation will help his side in the long run.
Spurs drew 1-1 with Real at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night, and it is that sort of situation which Tottenham players can expect the hotel to be utilised following its completion.
