Pochettino Explains Real Reason Why Tottenham Didn't Sign Any Players This Summer

  • How can Hibs replace a player like John McGinn?

Pochettino added: "I am happy to keep all the squad together, there were many rumours during the summer about players out".

The Argentine also added that while their stadium cost "nearly £1bn", Brexit's effect on the pound against the Euro has made for a "30 per cent" increase when looking to bring players over from the continent.

While fans will take some solace in the fact that key players Toby Alderweireld, Harry Kane and Dele Alli have all stayed at the club, concerns will remain about the strength in depth available to Pochettino.

Pochettino continued: "It was a odd transfer market because until England was out [of the World Cup] no-one was moving".

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. They need to allow us to manage.

But, although the Argentinian on Thursday conceded the transfer window would probably close without a fresh face arriving, he was adamant it was still a good period for his team.

"Who manages and decides the way to act is the board, and it is not the players".

"We try to be competitive".

There could still be exits, though, with Rose, Dembele and Alderweireld all able to leave before the European transfer window shuts at the end of August.

But Pochettino believes all three are at risk of losing focus and has urged them to forget about their futures and contribute to Tottenham's season instead.

'It is human nature that you always look after yourself. "Now is the moment to change your reality". But once you can not change anything, then you need to change your mindset and think about the team. It's about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not. You need to show your commitment, from the pitch, from the bench or sometimes from outside. "But when it is not possible, why create a problem that can only disturb or not help the club and your teammates?"
