Moving on: Tottenham appoint Pochettino as new manager
Tottenham Hotspur have appointed Mauricio Pochettino as their new boss on a five-year deal.
The Argentine has left his post at Southampton to replace axed Tim Sherwood, where he has drawn admirers for free-flowing football and bringing through young English talent.
Pochettino guided Southampton to their highest-ever Premier League finish of eighth place last season.
During his 18 months at St Mary’s, he oversaw the progress of home-grown stars such as Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana, James Ward-Prowse and Calum Chambers.
As a footballer, Pochettino enjoyed a highly successful playing career, making his debut in 1988 with Argentinian side Newell’s Old Boys at the age of 16 and winning the Argentine Primera DivisiÃ³n with them in 1991.
Two spells at Espanyol followed from 1994, sandwiched between time with Paris Saint-Germain and Bordeaux. He won two Copa del Rey titles with Espanyol and also earned 20 international caps with Argentina.
