Tottenham fans who are fearing that their manager may leave them to join Chelsea can now rest after Mauricio Pochettino signed a new 5 years contract with the Lilywhites to keep him at White Hart Lane until 2023, and he expects the club to reject offers for his star men as they move into their new stadium next season.
Pochettino had refused to commit his long term future to the club when asked publicly all season, and after failing to win a trophy for another year, there were fears that he could be leaving them for a bigger club.
Real Madrid and Chelsea were thought to be eyeing moves for the Argentine, but with Zidane taking Real Madrid to the Champions League final, it was the Blues who appeared closer to appointing the former Southampton boss.
Pochettino had also questioned the club’s ambition when he publicly urged the owner to splash the cash in the transfer market, raising more questions about his long term commitment with the club.
However, his new five years deal is evident that he is prepared to remain in the north London club for the foreseeable future and this contract would see him collect around £8.5 million per season, making him one of the highest paid coaches in the world.
