Spurs also did well in the Champions League this campaign, and the fans can be pleased with how the season has panned out for the North London outfit. Yes, after four years we never celebrate.
After more than two months out with a hamstring injury, the centre-back declared to Sky Sports News in January that he was fit and ready to assist Spurs hunt for trophies, but he did not play in a Premier League game until the draw at Brighton in April.
But Pochettino expects a hard off-season as Spurs try to compete with the likes of City, United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool.
Ahead of the final game of the season against Leicester at Wembley on Sunday, and after his side sealed a place in the Champions League by beating Newcastle on Wednesday, Pochettino said: I think now we need to focus on finishing in the best way.
"We progressed well from the last season".
Tottenham did not always have it easy, and there were occasions when it did look like they could miss out on the top four, but there is no doubt that they have been successful this season. Then of course if you have a strong financial side you can go buy some players.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted his team miss out on the big players due to other clubs having deeper pockets. "It will be a fantastic stadium, but you need to make the stadium your home".
"Today [Wednesday] we were doing nearly everything well against a good team". Sometimes, you have to wait on one or two chances. If the desire is not here it is not possible to see after the quality or the good play we can do. There is only hope by fans and board members for the team to win any type of silverware even if it's only a league cup or the FA Cup.
Pochettino's concerns don't appear to be misplaced as a new study conducted by British firm Brand Finance have found that out of the Premier League's so called "big six" clubs, Tottenham rank the lowest with regards to the strength of their brand, and they also have the lowest monetary value.
