Pochettino promises trophies at Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino is sure that his Tottenham side will be winning major trophies in a few years’ time.

The Argentine was drafted in by Spurs big shot Daniel Levy over the summer following the sackings of both Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood over the course of 2013/14.

Pochettino impressed in his first season at Southampton last term, yet he’s made an inconsistent start to life at White Hart Lane, picking up 11 points from eight games.

Although qualification for the Champions League is ultimately seen as the aim in north London, the 42-year-old revealed that he has his sights set on silverware in the not too distant future:

“You need time,” he is quoted by Goal. “You need to suffer and keep the bad moments. But maybe now is a different period for us.

“I am sure we’ll achieve something ­important, maybe in six months, one year or two years, I am sure the club will achieve a very important trophy.

“Daniel [Levy, Tottenham chairman] was very clear. He explained how we need to move the club on and we agreed.

“We expected a tough period and are in one now. But we have the possibility to build something ­important – it’s a very big challenge.”

Spurs’ last trophy came back in 2008 when Juande Ramos guided the Lilywhites to League Cup success.
