Now working with BT Sport David Ginola was a crowd favourite at White Hart Lane after joining us from Newcastle in 1997. The skilful French winger, now 47, stayed 3 years before moving on to Aston Villa. He was named PFA Players' Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year in 1998-99 while with us so knows a little about coming to the Premier League and what it takes to succeed.
With a new manager coming in there are new challenges, the aims are the same, top four, but with Pochettino bringing an exciting style it could be an exciting season for Spurs he believes.
“Hopefully Spurs are going to finish top four this season. It’s going to be a tough season again, for sure. They’ve learnt from last season. They sold Gareth Bale, they bought a lot of players, some of them were good, some of them were not good enough and at the end of the day you realise that you don’t have a return on the money you spend.
“You learn from your mistakes and this season is completely different, and Pochettino will be completely different about that and if he can transfer the work he did at Southampton into the Spurs perspective, it will be a very enjoyable outcome at the end of the season."
He stressed it is not just talent you need to succeed, a manger has to be able to take talented players and mould them into something that works together as a unit.
“Lamela came in last season when he was bought by AVB and he had a lot of expectation on him, and he didn’t deliver much. So you never know. It’s something you can create as a manager in the dressing room. It doesn’t matter how many talents you’ve got, it’s are you going to make the talents work together as a team and be successful for the club.”
Let's hope Erik Lamela can light our fans up the way David Ginola did, both home and away if you would please Mr Lamela.
