Mauricio Pochettino Wants To “Feel The Glory” With Tottenham Amid Real Madrid Links
Real Madrid linked boss Mauricio Pochettino has given the biggest hint yet that he will not be moving to the Spanish capital but instead remain at Tottenham Hotspur. Although he is still the second favourite to take over at the Bernabeu, the 46-year-old seems happy in North London and wants to “feel the glory” with them.
In words that will encourage Spurs fans he said:
“I think the period today at the club, at Tottenham, is so exciting.
“When you assess Tottenham, they are in the middle of the journey, in the middle to arrive in the harbour.
“I think we’re strong enough to sort out all the problems and arrive, and in the end to achieve what the club and fans deserve.
“In the end, all we want to achieve one day is to win trophies.”
Spurs have not won a trophy since Juande Ramos lead the to the League Cup title in 2008 and their current drought has brought some criticism to the club and Pochettino himself. However, Poch has taken inspiration from one of the great Tottenham sides, the double winning side from 1961 and he would love to deliver trophies , and glory, to White Hart Lane once more.
“When I arrived at Tottenham, the first video I think Daniel (Levy) or the people showed me was of Tottenham Hotspur, we are talking about the glory.
“I want to feel the glory with Tottenham.
“When I watch that video from 1960, I think always it’s a very emotional video.
“But it will be fantastic to deliver for our fans and for all the people that moment again, to repeat it here with Tottenham.
“But first of all we need to finish the stadium, move there, finish the facilities here, be settled, make our stadium home again and work so hard to try to be competitive.”
