Tottenham’s 1-0 home defeat to Manchester City on Sunday confirmed next season will be another with Europa League football on the calender at White Hart Lane.
Mauricio Pochettino has come up short in the race for fourth during his first season in charge, but unlike those before him it seems as if the Argentine will be given time to get it right.
He has even come out today and said he is the man who will have the final say on the club’s transfer business going forward.
“We have worked very hard in the last six months to identify our targets, to have a clear idea and picture, we analyse and assess all the situations to deliver in the summer,” he said.
“You know you do not have much time to decide, the holidays are coming and we need to be ready to take the decisions.
“We have three games left and when we have finished the season, then in this moment we can explain our plan.”
Pochettino added: “We have a plan and we have a target, but the most important thing is we have to deliver and move forward.”
With that in mind, we have identified what could be Pochettino’s dream XI for the start of next season.
