The Evening Standard’s football correspondent Dan Kilpatrick has detailed the promises which Daniel Levy has made to Mauricio Pochettino upon signing his new contract at the club.
Tottenham are getting ready to welcome a new era in the club’s history by opening a new stadium in August before the start of next season.
After last season’s success of finishing in third place in the Premier League, there will be Champions League football after all at the new ground.
For much of the campaign though, Spurs fans and players were forced to deal with worrying rumours which claimed that Mauricio Pochettino, a man responsible for the club’s progress in recent years, was being considered as a target for Real Madrid if Zinedine Zidane departs.
Therefore, there was a lot to cheer about on Thursday as the club announced that Pochettino had been rewarded with a new contract.
Journalist Dan Kilpatrick has also revealed that the club’s chairman Daniel Levy has informed the Tottenham manager about his plans to spend more in the transfer market.
#thfc BREAKING: Poch & his staff have signed new 5-year deals until 2023. He has received assurances from Levy that there will be significant funds to spend this summer to take the club to the next level. A host of key players set to follow.

Pochettino definitely has his shortcomings and towards the end of last season, as a top four finish became nervier than it should have been, there were more questions than answers about his future.
But based on the work that the Argentine has done since joining us, we have every reason to be upbeat about what is to come.
Here is hoping that Levy keeps his promise and brings in the adequate recruitment we need.
