Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham need to be ready in January transfer window

Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham need to be ready in January transfer window”

Harry Kane's natural leadership makes him the flawless replacement for regular captain Hugo Lloris, according to Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham will resist the urge to make wholesale changes to their squad in the January transfer window as the players have the quality to overcome a poor run of form in the Premier League, manager Mauricio Pochettino said today.

Harry was also praised for handling the situation in a calm way during England's Euro 2020 qualifier match against Bulgaria after continuous racist abuse against black English players stopped the game twice. The team have won three matches this season and face Watford on Saturday with memories fresh of the 7-2 hammering by Bayern Munich and the 3-0 defeat at Brighton. "We will miss Hugo for a few months and to have Harry step up is important". But if we need something we need to act.

He does not need to feel too much pressure. When you do that, if you are a natural leader, you don't feel the responsibility. If you are not a real leader and you need to act, you spend energy thinking: "'How do I need to face this problem?'"

Tottenham, who had already lost to Newcastle United and Leicester City, were beaten 3-0 by Brighton and Hove Albion before the global break but Pochettino said his team would recover. Of course it's my responsibility but I am flying. "When you do what you feel in your heart, it's natural", he added. If it is my decision I am going to stick with my players because I know they have the quality. Not one time. Who was with me?

"Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Tanguy Ndombele, Moussa Sissoko, Davinson Sanchez, Juan Foyth, Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Serge Aurier and Oliver Skippy were in there with me, but not one time!"

"I think he learned a lot from Hugo". Mauricio stated that the only way to motivate a team is to provide them with a sense of togetherness and a calm environment. That is the most important.

"But if we win all of the games why will we need to do anything? Winning is the best medicine for everyone".
