Tottenham boss Pochettino: Difficult to make signings 'secretly'

Tottenham boss Pochettino: Difficult to make signings 'secretly'

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino insists that he and his team need to respect every word chairman Daniel Levy said about keeping players because he is the boss.

Pochettino's team are now placed fifth in the league table with 41 points from 22 matches and have a match against Everton scheduled on Saturday.

After a poor start to life away from White Hart Lane - albeit for 12 months - Tottenham have made Wembley their home away from home in impressive fashion.

"Because Aaron spoke publicly that there are a lot of people ready to help people with temporary mental [health] issues, it's good for him to get the love from the fans and inspire people to get the same help and talk about it".

"No one is close to arriving in this transfer window", Pochettino said. "Sure. For me his quality, mentality and professionalism is top".

It's no secret that defence takes precedence in Big Sam's teams, but when asked if Pochettino thinks Everton will park the bus, he said, "I think Everton have good players, offensive players that play so well". Or another player signs with two years left. We make our prediction on the Premier League clash.

Mauricio Pochettino has restored hope to the Tottenham faithful after a run of three wins and a draw from their last four games.

Spurs may well be able to persuade Kane that he can achieve all of his ambitions with them, but even the man himself has spoken recently of the need for the club to win trophies now. I always say to him, you can play like a keeper, a centre-back and midfielder because his mentality makes him different.

"Harry is special. It's not the profile of a typical offensive player - he is special".

One player that will not be joining Spurs is, of course, Ross Barkley who joined London rivals Chelsea instead. Look at how Tottenham was 18 years ago and how it is today.

If the clock is ticking on his Spurs future, then it is also ticking on his time in the Premier League. The 21-year-old earns around £60,000-a-week on the six-year contract he signed in September 2016, but interest from clubs across Europe has led Spurs to renegotiate that.
