Apart from bringing Champions League football to White Hart Lane, another important hallmark of Pochettino’s time at Tottenham has been the club’s incredible success story with the younger players.
The emphasis on youth has clearly reaped benefits for a Tottenham side boasting the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Eric Dier in their ranks. The likes of academy graduates such as Harry Winks gradually breaking into the first also goes to highlight the confidence put in the youth.
With such an unprecedented level of success with the youth system, it is no surprise to see Tottenham rank very high in the economic valorisation table.
The table recently published by the CIES Football Observatory Weekly Post represent the gap between the value of squads and transfer fee expenditure to assemble them. The value of Tottenham Hotspur’s squad has risen by £451 million, from £235 million to £686 million.
Apart from the youth system, Pochettino has also worked wonders with the young signings accumulated over the seasons guiding the likes of Eriksen, Lamela and Son into genuine class players.
