Pochettino Without At Least 6 Players For Newcastle Trip

Mauricio Pochettino

"It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different".

Despite no new arrivals for the first season at their brand new stadium, Pochettino feels they can still go on to do great things this term.

Pochettino's rallying cry at the end of last season calling on the club to be "brave" and "take risks" has not been seen in the transfer market.

"I am responsible for what I told you [in May] or what I tell you, but I can not be responsible for what you believe that I wanted to tell you", he said. "Building a new training ground, finishing this summer the (player's) lodge was a massive investment".

Mauricio Pochettino didn't manage to bring in any new signings this summer but the Tottenham manager expressed his delight at keeping his squad together with no key players leaving.

"Building a stadium that is almost £1 billion". And if they don't play then I don't want them to give up and start to say: 'The gaffer is a bad guy.' It's not a drama - drama is another thing.

Makenzie Alexis Noland's graduation photos have captured the attention of many, as she included a special friend with her - an alligator.

Spurs have been strongly linked with a move for Grealish, whose future at Aston Villa has been a source of speculation all summer after they failed to gain promotion to the Premier League.

"For me they are part of the team".

"If all the players today are thinking in a collective target, we can be competitive".

Deals for players like Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembélé are yet to materialise however and Pochettino said he expected the players who remained at the club following the close of the window to knuckle down.

"There's no reason to not trust in our squad and no reason not to believe in our club or believe in what we can do".
