Mauricio Pochettino: Arriving fifth was very good for us


Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino says finishing fifth in the Premier League should be seen as a good result.

The 43-year-old left Southampton to join Spurs last summer, missing a top four finish by four points.

They beat Everton 1-0 away from home on Sunday afternoon to secure a place in the group stage of next season's Europa League.

"It was a really, really good day," Pochettino is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"The first half was fantastic, one of the best of the season.

"The effort was brilliant, I want to congratulate the players because it was a tough season and arriving fifth was very good for us. For a first season at Tottenham, it was difficult but I'm very happy."
