Mauricio Pochettino wants Tottenham to “feel the glory” of winning a trophy in the near future.

Spurs progressed to the EFL Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday night with a 3-1 win at West Ham United. They will face Arsenal at the Emirates in the next round.

Pochettino has been linked with the Real Madrid job again this week after Julen Lopetegui was sacked by the La Liga giants.

And there has been plenty of talk in recent days about whether the Argentinian can achieve everything he wants to at Tottenham.

He was asked questions along those lines in his press conference on Friday ahead of the weekend trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.

In response, Pochettino spoke at length about how Spurs are now ready to take the next step as a club and win their first trophy in over a decade.

“I think the period today at the club, at Tottenham, is so exciting,” he said (via the Independent).

“When you assess Tottenham, they are in the middle of the journey, in the middle to arrive in the harbour.

“I think we’re strong enough to sort out all the problems and arrive, and in the end to achieve what the club and fans deserve. In the end all we want to achieve one day is to win trophies.

“When I arrived at Tottenham, the first video I think Daniel (Levy) or the people showed me was of Tottenham Hotspur, we are talking about the glory.

“Yes, I want to feel the glory with Tottenham. When I watch that video from 1960, I think always it’s a very emotional video but it will be fantastic to deliver for our fans and for all the people that moment again, to repeat it here with Tottenham.

“But first of all we need to finish the stadium, move there, finish the facilities here, be settled, make our stadium home again and work so hard to try to be competitive.”

Depending on results elsewhere, Tottenham can return to the top four with a win at Wolves this weekend – check out our predicted XI here.
