Mauricio Pochettino has been named as Tottenham’s new head coach after resigning as Southampton manager.
Pochettino, who has signed a five-year contact, guided Southampton to their highest-ever Premier League finish of eighth place last season.
During his 18 months at St Mary’s, the Argentinian also helped develop home-grown talent such as the England pair of Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy told the club’s website: “In Mauricio I believe we have a Head Coach who, with his high energy, attacking football, will embrace the style of play we associate with our Club. He has a proven ability to develop each player as an individual, whilst building great team spirit and a winning mentality.
“We have a talented squad that Mauricio is excited to be coaching next season.”
Pochettino added: “This is a club with tremendous history and prestige and I am honoured to have been given this opportunity to be its Head Coach.
“There is an abundance of top-class talent at the Club and I am looking forward to starting work with the squad.
“Tottenham Hotspur has a huge following across the world and I have great admiration for the passion the fans show for this team. We are determined to give the supporters the kind of attacking football and success that we are all looking to achieve.”
Pochettino has taken his back-room staff to White Hart Lane with Jesús Pérez (Assistant Head Coach), Miguel D’Agostino (First Team Coach) and Toni Jiménez (Goalkeeper Coach) all following him to north London.
