Mauricio Pochettino has signed a long-term contract with Tottenham Hotspur which will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2023.

The former Southampton boss, whose coaching staff have also extended their stay at the club, has guided Spurs to three successive top-three finishes.

“I am honoured to have signed a new long-term contract as we approach one of the most significant periods in the club’s history and be the manager that will lead this team into our new world-class stadium,” Pochettino said.

“This is just one of the factors that make this one of the most exciting jobs in world football. And we are already making plans to ensure we continue to build on the great work that everyone has contributed to over the past four years.”

“[Chairman] Daniel [Levy] and I have spoken at length about our aspirations for this football club. We both share the same philosophies to achieve long-term, sustainable success.”

“This is a special club – we always strive to be creative in the way we work both on and off the pitch. And will continue to stick to our principles in order to achieve the success this club deserves.”

Chairman of Tottenham Daniel Levy said: “We have been on an extraordinary journey and the times ahead look even more exciting as the club enters the next phase in its history.”

“Mauricio has fostered an incredible spirit in the team and has embraced a style of play our fans have loved watching. I know they will welcome this commitment by Mauricio.”

Pochettino, who managed to win 121 games in 218 with Tottenham since 2014, has also played professional football between 1989 and 2006.
