first_imgMauricio Pochettino has admitted Tottenham Hotspur have no regrets despite finishing behind Chelsea in the race for the Premier League title.The Blues clinched their fifth Premier League – and sixth overall – title on Friday night following a 1-0 win at West Brom, with closest challengers Spurs opening the door for them by losing to West Ham last week.Pochettino’s side had to wait until Sunday to play again, when they hosted Manchester United in the final ever game at White Hart Lane.A simple 2-1 victory was recorded, which guaranteed Spurs will finish second in the league – their highest placing since 1963.That is an impressive feat in of itself, and Pochettino made it clear he has no regrets about missing out on the title.“I want to congratulate all and say thank you to the fans, players, my staff because all together we work so hard to achieve all that we achieve this season,” he said.“Really disappointed because Chelsea in the end they won the Premier League. There was nothing to regret, I am very happy with the performance of the players.“Only now say to our fans we will try next season to give our best and fight again to win the league.”Tottenham will have to get over their Wembley jitters to do that – considering they are playing the entire campaign at the home of English football next season – but the future certainly looks bright as their new stadium takes shape.“We were talking a lot and I think we believe when the new stadium opens the doors it will help the club achieve the last level,” Pochettino added.“That is our expectation, our idea. The facilities on the training ground and the stadium will put the team and the club at the last level.” 1 Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to end Tottenham’s title drought next season last_img
