"I could not be happier to sign this new contract. It was an easy decision for my coaching staff and I because we can feel the appreciation of everyone here – there is no better place to be right now.
The supporters are unbelievable, we have assembled a great group of players with huge potential that can get even better, while the facilities we have to work in are world-class. We also have an incredible new stadium to look forward to and now we are determined to build a side worthy of playing in such an exciting new venue.
We have enjoyed a great season and we believe this is just the beginning. We have a long-term project and huge belief that we can achieve something big here for the future.
This club has all the ingredients to continue to challenge at the very top in both the Premier League and in Europe and we want to be here to be a part of what I believe will be a special period in the club's history."
Despite all of the recent success Pochettino has brought to Spurs, he wants to take the club to the next level. Inside sources claim that Pochettino is contemplating a complete staff overhaul, getting rid of anyone he considers deadwood. He is also sifting through the contract situations of each player from the U18s up to the Senior Squad.
"Mauricio doesn't want the club to be stagnating in a period of second-best success," a source close to the Argentinian claims. "He is ready to bring his club a trophy."
Mauricio Pochettino has committed his future to Tottenham Hotspur by signing a new five-and-a-half-year deal that will keep him in north London until 2021.
The Argentine manager verbally agreed the new contract last month but has now put pen to paper on the long-term deal believed to be worth £5.5million per year.
Spurs announced the news on Twitter on Thursday and confirmed that first-team coaches Jesus Perez and Toni Jimenez have also agreed contract extensions.
