Tottenham Hotspur full-back Danny Rose has heaped praise on manager Mauricio Pochettino by saying that the club are in “great hands.”

The 44-year-old took charge of Spurs in 2014 and helped the club to finish fifth in the Premier League, in addition to helping them reach the final of the League Cup where they lost 2-0 to Chelsea.

Tottenham improved on their league position in the 2015/16 campaign by finishing third in the standings, thereby directly qualifying to the group stage of the Champions League this season.

Spurs were in the hunt for the Premier League title for the majority of last season, but a poor string of results towards the end meant they had to be satisfied with third spot, the club’s highest league finish in the Premier League era.

And Rose, who feels Pochettino has managed to instil a “great philosophy” at White Hart Lane, believes the club are moving in the right direction under the guidance of the Argentine.


“Now that Mauricio’s here, he has installed a great philosophy from top to bottom at the football club”, he told Spurs TV.

“We have a very bright future considering what we have achieved in the last couple of years since the manager has been here.

“We got to a League Cup final and we finished third last season.

“I’d say that the club is in great hands and we’re going in the right direction.”

Tottenham are currently seventh in the Premier League with five points from three outings.
