Any talk over Pochettino departing North London this summer has now come to an end, however, as the former Espanyol boss has officially agreed to remain in place for the next five years.

Speaking to the club’s official website, chairman Daniel Levy said: “We’ve seen Mauricio bring a tremendous spirit and ethos to our club and embrace the attacking style of play with which we have always been associated.

“He’s built a squad of youth and experience and this season we’ve seen football played at the highest level – quite sublime at times. Everyone at the club is delighted he has agreed an extended contract.
