Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has signed a new five-year deal, which will see him stay at White Heart Lane until 2021.

The Argentine boss, who has recently linked with Manchester United in recent days, has led Spurs’ title challenge this season – only to lose out to eventual champions Leicester City.

However, the club’s highest ever Premier League points tally is still achievable if they beat already-relegated Newcastle United this weekend – a win also will guarantee that they finish above arch-rivals Arsenal for the first time since 1995.

Along with creating a solid spine of the team – something they had been missing in previous campaigns – Pochettino has masterminded Tottenham’s attacking and full-throttle displays, which have been a joy to watch this term.

Young stars like Dele Alli, Harry Kane, and Eric Dier have also taken the league by storm under the tutelage of the Argentine, with the trio becoming fully-fledged England internationals.

Appointed in May 2014 – Pochettino guided Spurs to fifth place in the Premier League and to the League Cup final in his first season at the helm.
