How does Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino rate this season?

Tottenham have seven scheduled games remaining in their season, but that will become eight if they overcome Ajax to reach the Champions League final.

Spurs face the Dutch side over two legs to try reach the final of Europe’s elite club competition, where Liverpool or Barcelona will be the opponents.

Meanwhile, the North London club still have five Premier League games in store and that starts on Saturday against the Manchester City team they knocked out of the quarter-finals in the Champions League.

Spurs currently sit third in the league table, but top four football is certainly not secure yet with fifth-placed Chelsea just a point behind.

So how does the season rank so far for manager Mauricio Pochettino?

The popular Argentinian boss is in his fifth season with Spurs and could be on course for his best one yet.

 

Despite no signings in the last two consecutive transfer windows, his team are once again in pole position for another top four finish and have gone to new heights in the Champions League.

There is still the disappointment that he’s yet to win a trophy while in charge of Spurs, but reaching a Champions League semi-final is a major sign of progress and he’s done it without colossal spending.

This season has been a success for Pocehttino so far considering the injury problems the squad has faced and it’s got the potential to go down in history depending on the remaining results in Europe.

Spurs are extremely fortunate to have the 47-year-old in charge and it’s almost easy to forget that the team’s success has been achieved this year while juggling the move to the new stadium.

Of course Pochettino needs to get over the line for silverware, but he has once again got the most out of the group he has and they are perhaps only a couple of signings away in the summer from becoming a real force.
