In an interview with El Pais, Pochettino said: 'We live in a result-based industry where it seems that all the factors that maintain good results are the ones that work.

Pochettino managed to turn Spurs into a top team during his tenure, regularly finishing in the top four despite little financial backing in the transfer market by the club's board.
