Mauricio Pochettino has praised Tottenham fans for their “fantastic support” and stated he managed to “accomplish the objectives I was asked for” by the club.

The Argentinian was sacked as Spurs manager earlier this month after five-and-a-half years in charge, with Jose Mourinho subsequently taking over as head coach.

Under Pochettino, Tottenham reached last season’s Champions League final and established themselves as a top-four side in the Premier League.

But they have struggled since losing to Liverpool in Madrid and, with the club 14th in the table and having been knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Sky Bet League Two side Colchester, chairman Daniel Levy decided to make a change.

“I would like to thank [owner] Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy for giving me the opportunity to be part of Tottenham Hotspur’s history,” Pochettino said in a statement.

“I would like to thank also everyone I met at Tottenham, all the club staff and the football players during these five-and-a-half years.

“I gave the best of me to accomplish the objectives I was asked for in our first meeting. There were equally tough challenges as exciting success.

“Best wishes for the future, I am sure we will cross paths again.”
