English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur have appointed Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager on a five-year deal.

The 42-year-old becomes the club’s tenth manager since 2001 and at the helm replaces Tim Sherwood, who was sacked earlier this month.

The former Espanyol boss took over at Southampton in January 2013.

His impact at the Saints was immediate and he went on to lead them to eighth place last season – their highest finish in the Premier League.

Spurs finished two places higher in 6th place and with that qualified for the Europa league next term.
