Pochettino Looks To Replicate Ferguson’s Exploit

share on:

Tottenham gaffer Mauricio Pochettino has stated he would like to replicate Ferguson’s success at Manchester United.

The Argentine has taken a young spurs side to second on the table, but could miss out on the title if Leicester win tomorrow.

Despite their potential near-miss, the 44-year-old believes the north London club has a bright future and wants to emulate the success of Ferguson, who won the Premier League 13 times during his stay at Old Trafford.

“Why not? Sir Alex Ferguson is a very special person,” Pochettino said. “He was given the security to build his legacy at Manchester United. I believe we are special too and we can build it here together.

“This club is special. I feel the love from the beginning, from the very first day. I am very happy to be here to hopefully achieve big things.

“I think the potential is fantastic, with the new stadium. I think the club is coming to a very tough period because we are building a new stadium and we may focus sometimes on that, but at the same time it is very exciting.”

Pochettino had been linked with a number of high-profile jobs, but the Spurs boss praised his current employers and explained the decision to make a commitment to the club.

“We started to speak before, a few months ago, and today I think is a good moment to communicate we have reached the verbal agreement,” Pochettino said.

“I am very happy. I wanted to stay for many reasons. Tottenham have unbelievable potential. We created after two years here a great group of players.

“We have a very strong squad, young, with potential to be a top team. The staff and the supporters are unbelievable, there is massive potential, why not stay here?”
