The Argentine clearly reckons anything is possible.

Pochettino, 40, said: “The owner has only one objective and that is for Southampton to be among the elite – not just in English football but beyond.

“For me this is a very important characteristic to have – and I know I have someone who is going to make decisions in order to make my life easier.

“Obviously we have a good, cordial relationship. I like him because he is very demanding and is on top of everything.

“He gives you everything but he also demands a lot from you. I’m grateful for that.”
