Kane on new contract: ‘I’m really excited, it’s a proud day’ 8 June 2018 – News – tottenhamhotspur.com:

When the season ended for Spurs with an exciting 5-4 win over Leicester at Wembley – securing third place, the media went to town with reports that the club’s crown jewels (including manager Pochettino and star players Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen) would be plundered by richer, more successful clubs in the close season. 

When Zinedine Zidane resigned as Real Madrid manager the frenzy grew to fever pitch as the media were dead certain that Spurs manager Pochettino could not resist the lure of the newly-crowned Champions League winners – despite Pochettino recently committing himself to Spurs with a new 5-year contract. 

After Pochettino re-affirmed his firm commitment to Spurs in a press con in Spain, a study declared that Kane was the most valuable player in the world at £176million, which only served to link Kane with a move away from Spurs. 

Well, as expected, Spurs has announced that Kane has signed a new 6-year deal with Spurs which it seems doubles his wages to about £200,000 a week with the possibility of going up to £300,000, should Kane meet certain prescribed targets. 

This new contract makes Kane one of the highest paid footballers in the Premier League! The significance and implications for the future of Spurs are massive.

For one, it is a huge statement of intent from Spurs chairman Daniel Levy that the club will match the ambitions of its best players with appropriate financial rewards. Surely, this will be followed up with new deals for the likes of captain Hugo Lloris, Eriksen, Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min, Eric Dier and the fans’ player of the season, Jan Vertonghan. 

Secondly, the establishment of a new wage structure gives Spurs the latitude in bringing marquee players to the club. Where previously, this seemed like a big impediment, Spurs have demonstrated that they will do what is necessary to take its place amongst the football elite of Europe. 

It is indeed an exciting time to be a Spurs fan. With the opening of the new stadium imminent, the club have made all the right moves to provide the manager and players the right incentives and environment to excel! 

COME ON YOU SPURS!!!

Mauricio Pochettino signs new five-year contract at Tottenham Hotspur:

Massive news! With all the recent speculation over Pochettino’s future, it’s great that the club has come out to publicly support the manager – and everything he has achieved – in this manner. 

With the new stadium on the horizon, the next three months will be crucial as Pochettino and his staff build a stronger squad for the hunt for trophies! 

COYS! 

Transitional season takes on a whole new meani…

Once upon a time, during the dark days, a transitional season for Spurs usually meant a season that would be over once Spurs were knocked out in the FA Cup in the third round in January. Inevitably, that season would peter out with Spurs ending up in a mid-table position. 

After the strong showing in the season before – especially at White Hart Lane – where Spurs were unbeaten, most observers expected Spurs to struggle at Wembley – Spurs’ temporary home while a new stadium was being built at the Lane and proclaimed 2017-18, a transitional one for Spurs. 

As it turned out, Spurs performed creditably in the Champions League – beating Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund at Wembley AND topping the proverbial Group of Death – reached the FA Cup semi-final for the 2nd consecutive season and finished 3rd in the Premier League! 

All massive achievements for Pochettino and his team, even as rival teams continue to troll Spurs for yet another trophy-less season. Key objective of bringing Champions League football to the new stadium was achieved and Spurs looked in a good position to build on three good years with a view to finally winning trophies. 

With the trauma of Wembley behind Spurs, this close season becomes one of vital importance as the club would need to keep our top players, strengthen the squad with new recruits and complete the new stadium in time for 2018-19. It’s a good time to be a Spurs fan!

COYS! 

A great way to end the season! THIRD!! COYS!!!…
