Tottenham Hotspur have announced that immediate former Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino will take over at White Hart Lane from next season on a five year contract.
Following Pochettino’s appointment, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy stated ”we have a Head Coach who, with his high energy, attacking football, will embrace the style of play we associate with our Club.”
Levy further stated that “[Pochettino] has a proven ability to develop each player as an individual, whilst building great team spirit and a winning mentality.”
Pochettino resigned as Southampton manager to take the Tottenham job following 18 months at St. Mary’s, which culminated in leading the club to an eighth place finish last season with their highest ever points haul in the Premier League.
The Argentine, who becomes Tottenham’s eighth manager in 13 years, will be joined at White Hart Lane by Jesus Perez as assistant head coach, Miguel D’Agostino as first-team coach and Toni Jimenez as goalkeeper coach.
