Ardiles: Spurs could not do better than Pochettino

Tottenham hero Ossie Ardiles says Mauricio Pochettino is as good as it gets.

Ardiles believes it is only a matter of time before Tottenham convert their consistency as contenders into the club's first major prize in more than 10 years.

He said: “Over the last four or five years, (chairman) Daniel Levy has had to make big commercial decisions about building a new stadium and building a team to fill it.

“When you compiled a list of the five biggest clubs in England, Tottenham was probably not among them – on the fringes, in the margins, but not one of the big five - but now they have one of the best training grounds in the world and the new stadium is nearly ready.

“And the biggest decision of all by Daniel was to go out and bring in Mauricio Pochettino as the coach.

“I would not change Mauricio for any manager in the world: Under him, Tottenham has become a contender all the time, we are playing in the Champions League every year and last year we beat Real Madrid in the group."
