Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino happy with squad despite no signings

Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino happy with squad despite no signings

'We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that, ' the boss added.

"I am not anxious, not sad, I am so happy".

Midfielder Harry Winks has returned to full training following a long-term ankle injury but the Magpies game will come too soon while Josh Onomah is also set to miss out with a knee problem.

"There were many rumours during the summer, about players out".

The England captain - who won the Golden Boot at the recent World Cup finals in Russian Federation with six goals - took part in the rainy session held at the Tottenham training ground in Enfield on Thursday.

Granted, they did well to keep defender Toby Alderweireld at the club after interest from Manchester United but if you're a Spurs fan, you must be struggling to find any sort of optimism going into the new campaign.

"Of course it's hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently", he said in his press conference earlier today, as per The Mirror. That is a fantastic experience, for him to translate to our team.

Mauricio Pochettino claiming it is "advantage Newcastle", what with us having nobody in the later stages of this summer's competition.

"I don't like to talk about the players who are with other teams".

"I am so proud, they were very focused and tried to arrive in a good condition". Some need more time to get fit than others.

"Maybe some players will stay here to reach the level, because maybe we don't want to take risks".

Spurs will be desperate to be one of the main challengers for the Premier League title next season as they look to try and win their first trophy under Mauricio Pochettino.

"Newcastle of course in this period have an advantage to us in their preparation with the whole squad, but that is not a reason to complain. We are not a victim, we need to adapt ourselves to the situation, and I am sure we will be competitive". 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.

"We have a lot of players".
