Pochettino’s transformation of Tottenham has also won the admiration of Spurs legend Glenn Hoddle, who believes the Argentine boss can deliver the Premier League title this season.
Former England boss Hoddle, 58, who played at White Hart Lane for 12 years and also managed the club for two-and-a-half years, believes that Pochettino has turned the side into a mean machine capable of achieving glory.
He said: “The key for me, which is strange for Tottenham, is that they’re not conceding goals.
“I think they’ve got the best goal difference in the top four.
“That’s going to be a real key as well.
“So yes, they’re very much in the hunt and it’s a great chance for Spurs like never before.”
