Pochettino promises to break Spurs' transfer duck

Pochettino promises to break Spurs' transfer duck

"If you remember four years ago, the people say who is Mauricio Pochettino?".

"I don't want to compare us with other clubs, who have made signings before us in the previous two seasons and we have finished above them".

"But the problem with that was that straight away it was the penalty against Michael Owen [in the 2002 World Cup]". That situation killed me!

Otherwise it should be a familiar side with Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli looking to carry over their excellent form from last season as they support Golden Boot victor Harry Kane in attack.

But Pochettino said he himself had been considered an unknown when he arrived at Southampton in 2013 and also cited the rises of Spurs pair Eric Dier and Dele Alli and Chelsea's N'Golo Kante.

"My words were not meant to offend and for that I would like to apologies to the chairman, manager, my team mates and the fans".

Pochettino has however reminded Rose that some of Tottenham's most successful players were signed by the club while still relatively unknown.

Do you think Eriksen will be Tottenham's key player this season?

"It was his opinion and then he understood that maybe he needed to apologise to us and that is very good for him and the club".

But Pochettino was at pains to stress that the matter was not resolved, with Rose's inflammatory comments not indicative of a wider problem within the dressing room.

"He's our player. He needs to become fit as quickly as possible".

Danny Rose has cast doubt over his future after conducting a controversial newspaper interview this week but the defender isn't available for selection anyway as he works his way back to full fitness from a knee injury so Ben Davies will start on the left. Nothing has changed over my perception of him. "The moment he apologised we moved on and it was the past". The Colombian is set to cost Tottenham £35m should they decide to move for the 21-year-old and although Spurs are yet to make a signing this summer, Pochettino was quick to state that he is not fearful of the lack of new faces this summer. Tottenham's history, if you see the last five years, we always spend at the end of the transfer window.
