Mauricio Pochettino places focus on youth rather than expensive new signings

Mauricio Pochettino places focus on youth rather than expensive new signings”

Spurs, who signed the player in a disastrous summer transfer window deadline day move past year, have left the player off their tour of the United States, citing "elevated levels of oxygen in a muscle" when the player asked for an explanation, according to L'Équipe.

It's not like the money isn't there either with Nabil Bentaleb, Fedrico Fazio and Clinton N'Jie being sold by the Premier League runners-up, as well as Kyle Walker who has joined Manchester City for a fee widely reported to be worth £50million.

In an interview with ESPN FC, he said: "The last two seasons, we improved a lot".

"I understand completely his football and we have the same philosophy and we share the same values in football and that's the most important thing for me". It is very clear, our philosophy is about trying to play exciting football with young players and trying to be different to the top sides. "I think we have a very good relationship, we have a clear idea of what we need to do in the future". For one, it's because we moved to Wembley, all will be different for us.

Sissoko was believed to be on the brink of a Deadline Day move from Newcastle United to Goodison Park, only for Mauricio Pochettino to swoop in at the last moment to convince the midfielder to move to White Hart Lane for a fee of around £30m. L'Equipe confirm that the French global, having been left out of Spurs' summer tour of the United States, is also wanted by Lyon.

Tottenham did appear set to clinch the signing of Argentina Under-20 centre-back Juan Foyth, although Sky Sports report that interest has now cooled with Pochettino said to be unhappy with Estudiantes' £8m asking price for a player also coveted by Paris Saint-Germain.

Tottenham are relocating to Wembley next season during the construction of their new stadium, but it is a ground they have struggled to be successful at, but the French stopper is hoping they will make progress next season regardless.

He believes that, coupled with Spurs' new state-of-the-art training base in Enfield which is now also used by the England squad, gives the club the type of state-of-the-art facilities needed to sustain long-term success.

"I think it is unbelievable the facilities we have and the training ground".

"But it is true we have a different philosophy, it's not because we can not invest, but Tottenham have built a different philosophy than the other big clubs".
