Pochettino keen to move on after Rose says sorry for Tottenham criticism

Pochettino keen to move on after Rose says sorry for Tottenham criticism”

For me it's not a big issue. "We have some of them, but I don't think we will have too many new faces on the pitch, because we don't have too many, to be fair", he said.

In praise of the 21-year-old, Redknapp claims he is one of the best players in the world, and that the back-to-back PFA Young Player of the Year is a main reason that Mauricio Pochettino's side can challenge at the top once again. Pochettino said in comments published by British newspapers on Saturday.

Tottenham kick off their Premier League campaign with a hard away trip to Newcastle on Sunday.

The Leicester winger, who was named the PFA Players' Player of the Year for the 2015/16 season, is eager for a move away from the Midlands this summer and has been the subject of three rejected bids from Italian club Roma, worth a reported £36m. "For me this situation is the past". "I don't think it's a matter to joke about because with some of the global players today, maybe one or two years ago, none of us knew them very well".

"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".

One consolation for Pochettino is Newcastle have problems of their own as speculation swirls around the future of manager Rafael Benitez, who is clearly disenchanted by the club's failure to back him in the transfer market. He's our player. He needs to be focused and try to be fit as soon as possible.

"Since January he's been working hard to fix his problem and our medical staff are working hard with him".

Spurs' reluctance to spend while their title rivals have invested heavily in new players has prompted concerns they will be unable to challenge in 2017-18, but Pochettino has promised that there will be new arrivals before the window closes on August 31. "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".

"Over the last five years Tottenham have always signed players and spent money at the end of the window", he said. "I rate him as a player but we have similar types with Alex Iwobi, Mesut Ozil and now Jack Wilshere back".

'For me it's not a big issue, it is time to move on. The team is ready to compete.
