Pochettino took over at White Hart Lane earlier this summer to replace interim boss Tim Sherwood who was in charge of Tottenham since last December following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas.

Argentine coach Pochettino impressed during his 18 months in charge of Southampton and he has been handed the task of leading Tottenham back into the top four.

Pochettino, who has signed a five-year deal at Tottenham, has set his sights high and is targeting winning the Premier League title at some point.

"All managers want the best and want to be the best," Pochettino told The Sun.

"I knew from the first day I came here that Spurs are a big club. 

"My challenge is to win the Premier League... eventually. This is our goal, to win the title one day."

Pochettino believes he has the squad at his disposal to be a success at White Hart Lane, admitting the target next season is to improve the club's style of play.

"Our target at the moment is to provide a team capable of creating our philosophy on the pitch. To develop and improve the style of football we want to play. 

“We have an unbelievable squad with some unbelievable players. 

“We need to work to get the players ready to start the season playing with our philosophy. 

“This is our only target at the moment. Afterwards we will see. 

“Tottenham are expected to play well and win — results are important. And we will target a position later. But for the moment our aim is to get the squad playing the way we want.”
