Ian Wright has admitted he is jealous of Tottenham’s progression under Mauricio Pochettino.

The former Arsenal striker was speaking on BBC 5live following Spurs’ historic victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League.

“I’ve always been afraid of the Tottenham emergence, because it’s been coming,” said Wright. (Quotes via London Evening Standard.)

“Since Pochettino’s got there it’s been steadily rising and rising and the only thing you feel that is going to hold Tottenham back is ‘will Daniel Levy pay the players the kind of money that is going to keep them there?’. That’s all it’s going to come down to.

“This is a great manager with great, young, ambitious players. They’re not fly by night players, they look like they’re the real deal. [Wednesday’s] result against Real Madrid, they hammered them. And it’s a team that’s still got a lot more to give.

“It’s something as an Arsenal man, sitting here, it’s a frightening prospect seeing their progression, it really is. And jealousy does come into it.”
