Ever since the arrival of new manager Mauricio Pochettino to Spurs speculation has been extensive about the impact the Argentinian is going to have on the team.

During his reign at Southampton he was able to successfully transform the losing team into a winning one, securing them a finishing spot at number eight in the league with noticeable victories against Liverpool and Chelsea.

He managed the club for a total of 18 months before recently moving to the North-London club on a five-year deal.

Upon his arrival he has been using a translator to communicate with the press, but in an interview with Spurs TV today he spoke English to make a pledge to the players. He has stressed the importance of not fearing his coaching regime if they want to be successful next season.

 "Our style is demanding - sometimes too much but we use common sense. We demand a lot from them because that is our style."

"Our philosophy is 'suffer in training so you don't suffer in the game'. But the players don't have to be afraid because we work with common sense all the time."

With this in mind, he has also promised fans that they will be proud to call themselves a Spurs fan after next season. As well as this, he confirmed that Steffen Freund would remain a part of the club's coaching staff.

Despite his reassurance to the players, Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez has per-warned them to prepare to be put through their paces ahead of next season.

No doubt, Southampton worked extremely hard to work their way back to the top spot, and have warned of intense training ahead for Spurs.

The striker said of his ex-boss: "He worked us really hard and we for the good results and finished eighth which we were happy with."

The arrival of the new manager has also brought with it much rumour regarding which potential players are going to sign to the club, with possible signings including Loic Remy and Yacine Brahimi the transfer window is looking like a hectic time for the club.

It is more than clear that Spurs are in for an intense ride next season with double training sessions already on the cards, but if it pays off it could be their best season yet.
