Dembele eyeing Tottenham success
Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele has targeted success in what he sees as a ‘fresh start’ under new manager Mauricio Pochettino, Sky Sports has reported.
Pochettino becomes Dembele’s third manager at Tottenham since he joined the club from Fulham in the summer of 2012. In those two seasons, the club has missed out on qualification for the Champions League and struggled for consistency last season after selling star man Gareth Bale for a world record transfer fee.
Dembele struggled with injury and never really established himself during Tim Sherwood’s five months in charge, but believes he can return to his best form under the Argentina. He said: “I have heard a lot of good stories about Pochettino so I hope it will be a good appointment.
“The style Southampton played under him was very impressive. Let’s hope it is going to be the same at Tottenham as well. Of course it’s good to have a change and a fresh start. We have a very good group of players and if we have a very good manager as well, then we can do big things. I hope I can fit in well under the new manager but we have to know what his plans are first.”
