Pochettino says he doesn’t have to win trophies to be a success at Spurs

Date Posted,April 21, 2017

Mauricio Pochettino insists he doesn’t need to win a trophy to be a success at Tottenham .

Pochettino claimed silverware is not the be all and end all and argued finishing in the top four with Spurs is as big a triumph as lifting a trophy at other super clubs like Barcelona.

Pochettino is two more wins away from his first piece of silverware as Tottenham boss after guiding them to today’s FA Cup semi-final against London and title rivals Chelsea.

A trophy would answer all those who believe Spurs need something tangible to show for all the progress they have made under Pochettino.

But he said: “Here at Tottenham is a massive success. Yes, you can win titles. But with which teams?

“It is normal to win titles with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, maybe Juventus, Porto in Portugal.

“With a big team, you are already very close to winning. Look at Barcelona with Pep, with Tito Vilanova, with Frank Rijkaard, with Luis Enrique. All different managers but with the same group of players and they were successful.

“Success for me is to finish in the top four like last season. It was a big success for Tottenham and means maybe more than winning one title with Barcelona.
