The Argentine has continually impressed since first arriving in the Premier League with Southampton in January 2013. He won 38% of his 60 games in charge of the Saints, transforming them from relegation battlers into top six contenders, and is now leading a Spurs side in contention for a Premier League and Europa League double.
The 43-year-old’s phenomenal progress has not gone unnoticed by two divisional rivals planning changes in management this summer – Chelsea and Manchester United. The Blues have reportedly shortlisted Pochettino as a potential successor to Guus Hiddink, whilst the Red Devils have earmarked him as a potential alternative to Jose Mourinho.
But according to Mirror Football, Spurs intend to fend off interest in Pochettino by offering their in-demand manager an improved contract at the end of the season, a plan the British newspaper claims now ‘looks a certainty’. The former Espanyol boss signed a five-year deal when he moved to White Hart Lane in summer 2014.
