Spurs fans got the news that they’ve been itching to hear today, as Mauricio Pochettino revealed that he plans to extend his contract with the club.
“It was an easy decision when you feel the love of the people and the potential of the club is massive, so why change?” he said.
“We create a good atmosphere on the training ground and I think we can achieve big things in the future.
“I believe in this project and this club. I want to stay here.”
After a week in which Tottenham’s title chances reduced after a disappointing result against West Brom, this is the perfect pick-me-up. Here’s how Spurs fans reacted to the news on Twitter.

Would be no surprise now to see Eriksen, Vertonghen & Lamela commit their future's long-teem with the confirmation of Poch's future.#THFC

Great news that Pochettino is to sign a new 5yr contract. A great young Manager for a great club. Best since Bill Nicholson without a doubt

I don't think Pochettino planned to announce contract agreement. Seemed to blurt it out right at the end of the press conference.
