The former Argentina defender recently called on the club to “be brave and take risks,” seemingly a challenge to chairman Daniel Levy to spend more money to bring in more high-profile players.

Tottenham is also moving into a new stadium, built on the site of club’s White Hart Lane, from next season.

Pochettino said he had “one of the most exciting jobs in world football.”
