Mauricio Pochettino verbally agrees a new five year deal with Tottenhamby Jack Kitson / 29 April 2016, 13:41Tweet
Tottenham fans can breathe a huge collective sigh of relief following the news that their manager Mauricio Pochettino has verbally signed a new five-year deal with the North London club.
Pochettino had been linked with Man Utd and more recently PSG, but has now decided to extend his current contract at White Hart Lane by an extra two years up until 2021.
Pochettino left Southampton in order to take up the position at Tottenham in the summer of 2014. In his first season at the helm the Argentine led the capital club to a 5th-placed finish, missing out on the top-4 by six points. However, the current campaign has been a completely different story…
Tottenham have been fighting it out at the summit of the table as they bid to win their first top-flight title since 1960/61. But, while rivals Arsenal, Man city, and Man Utd have dropped out of contention, it's league leaders Leicester who have surprisingly held their nerve.
Spurs still have a faint chance of winning the Premier league for the first time in their history, however in all likeliness it's the Foxes - with a seven point lead with three games to play - who are going to hoist the coveted trophy.
However, Spurs can still achieve their highest ever Premier League finish by landing 2nd spot, while they'll be playing Champions League football once again next season.
