Mauricio Pochettino: Why signing new Tottenham contract an easy decision

Mauricio Pochettino says there is no better place to be than Tottenham after signing new five-year contract

Mauricio Pochettino has ended speculation surrounding his future after the Manchester United target signed a new five-year deal on Thursday afternoon.

The former Argentina international has put pen to paper on a new five-year deal after a brilliant second season at White Hart Lane.

Pochettino masterminded Tottenham’s title charge before Spurs fell just short following a 2-2 draw with London rivals Chelsea earlier this month, which crowned Leicester City as Premier League champions.

The ex-Southampton manager was photographed leaving a lunch with United director and legend Sir Alex Ferguson earlier this week, inevitably prompting speculation Pochettino could swap Spurs for Old Trafford.

However, Pochettino insisted that there is no better place to be after the 40-year-old secured his long-term future at the north London club ahead of their final game of the season at Newcastle United.

Tottenham can finish above Arsenal for the first time in Premier League history if Spurs avoid defeat at St James’s Park.
