Much of the acclaim behind Tottenham's great season has deservedly gone to Mauricio Pochettino and the Argentine has picked up another accolade today to further reiterate their good form.

The 44-year-old won the Manager of the Month for February after guiding Spurs to four straight victories which had given them great momentum to their title challenge, as reported by Sky Sports.

This award is Pochettino’s third since joining the English top flight after initially becoming Southampton manager in January 2013.

Currently five points adrift leaders Leicester City, but the 44-year-old coach insists his squad is up for the title challenge.

In a news conference, Pochettino said: “You cannot hide our position.

“We are second in the table and the dream for all professionals is to achieve these things. We have shown character and maturity, and we also have the legs to run.”

He added: “The potential is massive for the future. This season we start to create a basis for the future of the club. We are in the beginning of a great period for the future of the club.”

Meanwhile, Southampton ace Fraser Forster claimed the Player of the Month with three consecutive clean sheets.

ASTOUNDING FORM

The English keeper has surprised many with his performances after coming back from a ten-month spell on the sidelines due to a cruciate knee ligament injury.

He instantly hit form for the Saints, becoming the catalyst for the club to push up the table and can now target to challenge for a European spot.

Forster is still looking to guarantee a place in the England squad for the Euro 2016 in France and his recent showings will surely aid his cause.

The 27-year-old has made nine appearances this term, and set a club record 708 minutes without conceding a goal upon his return.
