Tottenham boss Pochettino happy to keep Alderweireld

  • Mauricio Pochettino

We didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is hard to add players.

But Pochettino has warned that he will demand full commitment from anyone who is still at the club after the continental window closes.

Tottenham Hotspur have made some unwanted summer transfer window history after they became the first Premier League side to not make any signings in a summer transfer window since it first became a thing in 2003. If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together.

"That is true, don't believe in £400m, that (£1bn) is the truth!"

"And then with Brexit it is worse because the cost is 30% more, and then keep the best players".


With the window closing two days before Spurs play their opening Premier League fixture against Newcastle, Pochettino looks set to enter the season with the same squad as finished the last one.

Grealish, whose future has been the subject of intense speculation for the whole summer, trained at Villa's Bodymoor Heath training ground on Thursday morning and club insiders are now confident he won't be sold before the 5pm transfer deadline. They are Tottenham players and always they were in my plans.

"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together". That is a drama, I feel sorry for the English people.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has said he will decide after training on Friday which of his players who played at the World Cup will be available. "It's a fearless decision". You need to be clever in how you settle your principles, your strategy and to try to win.

But he urged them to knuckle down if they remain for the season, saying: "If all the players today are thinking in a collective target, we can be competitive". If we have all the squad thinking as individuals rather than as a collective, you can not achieve what you want and can not succeed.
