Tottenham boss Pochettino happy to keep Alderweireld

Tottenham boss Pochettino happy to keep Alderweireld”

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.

The club were linked with a number of names, notably Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, for who they had a £25million bid rejected on Wednesday.

So six of Tottenham's fringe players have been ruled out but Pochettino is also sweating on the fitness of several of his first team regulars after many returned back late to pre-season following their exploits at the World Cup. But I am happy to keep all the squad together.

Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele were all expected to leave this summer, and they still could if they are willing to move overseas.

Earlier in the day, Pochettino said: "At the moment we haven't received for any player".

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

Spurs, who have yet to make a new signing this summer, have been interested in a move for Grealish for several months but only recently made Villa an offer.

'I am the boss and if I expect from you to do something, then you need to provide it.

"Our targets are always in the same level of Real Madrid or Manchester United or Manchester City, but for different circumstances we can not achieve that".

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

Mauricio Pochettino has conceded that Tottenham Hotspur are going to struggle to bring in any players in the remaining hours of the Premier League transfer window.

Speaking about any possible incomings, the Tottenham manager said in a press conference: "I think it's so hard now".

Pochettino added: "What the club is doing is showing it is so fearless".

"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".

But Pochettino believes the club have acted on his demand in a different way.

"The most important thing is we're so positive and of course we're going to challenge for big things this season too".
