Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has responded to comments made by left-back Danny Rose about the club's transfer activity, stating that Spurs fans had to use Google to find out who he was when he first came to England in 2013.

Of course [he has a future].

'When he went there as a youngster from Leeds I bet Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov had to Google him'.

Pochettino revealed that he plans to speak to Rose on Saturday, claiming "it will not be a problem", and is certain he will remain at White Hart Lane. "Nothing has changed in my vision or perception here". "The moment he apologised we moved on and it was the past". It's in the past.

"My words were not meant to offend and for that I would like to apologise to the chairman, manager, my team mates, and the fans".


"I think Barkley would be the flawless player to do something different and I wouldn't even be surprised if they put in a late bid for Wilfried Zaha". For me it's not a big issue.

"I've not spoken to him because he is injured and going through the problems".

"We want to strengthen in different areas, in all areas".

"I don't understand why now it's a big issue when before it wasn't".

"We are working hard and I am sure we will add some players at the end of the transfer window. With the players we have we can compete in a very good way".


Faced with containing one of the Premier League's lethal goalscorers, summer signing Florian Lejeune will be tasked with closing down space in the Newcastle half and clearing out unsafe opportunities. We need new energy in the team.

But Erik Lamela, Danny Rose, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Kieran Trippier are all ruled out due to injury.

No club scored more goals than Tottenham last season in the top flight (86), and players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli will need to be accounted for.

Having said that, they beat Juventus 2-0 in their final pre-season friendly of the summer at Wembley, dispelling the idea that the size of the pitch has any bearing on their ability to play their game. "I'm sure they used Google or Chrome!" former Argentina worldwide Pochettino said. We have also seen Dele Alli blossom as one of England's most exciting young talents. Maybe three or four players, in offensive and defensive positions.

"Dwight Gayle was doing really well previous year. You have to be sure that you have enough quality to keep the level".
