Pochettino believes Tottenham Hotspur glory is inevitable

Mauricio Pochettino would be happy to spend at least another decade at Tottenham Hotspur, and has stated his belief that it is only a matter of time before they win a trophy.

Since succeeding Tim Sherwood as Spurs boss in the summer of 2014, Pochettino has seen his stock rise despite thus far failing to add to an honours list which has been dormant since 2008.

What he has done, though, is transform the White Hart Lane outfit into one of the best sides in the country, leading them to fifth, third and second-placed Premier League finishes.

Chairman Daniel Levy is quoted in a new book on Pochettino, written by Guillem Balague, as saying he hopes the Argentine will still be in charge of the capital club for the next 10 to 15 years.

And as he prepares his side to take on Real Madrid, the 45-year-old admits he would be happy to stay for the long-term, whilst revealing his belief the silverware is merely a matter of time.

“I am so happy,” he said. “I enjoy my time in Tottenham a lot. It’s a club with a lot of potential. We are waiting for a new stadium, with new facilities, that I think will be the best in Europe.

“It’s only a matter of time. I am happy to hear that Daniel is so kind to me, telling everyone what he expects from me. I hope to stay 10 or 15 years here. I would love to sign that contract.”
