Mauricio Pochettino during Tottenham vs Barcelona

Mauricio Pochettino on Rose & Janssen’s Tottenham futures

Tottenham 3 – Juventus 2

Tottenham’s pre-season began on Sunday, July 21st, vs Italian outfit Juventus.

Erik Lamela would open the scoring vs Juve in the 30th minute.

Maurizio Sarri’s side would then come from behind to make it 2-1 thanks to goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Spurs would then also come from behind. A Lucas Moura strike and a 93rd-minute attempt from the halfway line by Harry Kane gave Mauricio Pochettino’s side the win on Sunday.

Pochettino on Rose & Janssen

After said game, Pochettino was questioned on a number of topics, including Danny Rose and Vincent Janssen.

Both Janssen and Rose have been left out of Spurs’ pre-season tour squad so they can search for a new club.

Rose has most recently been linked with a move to Serie A side Juventus, while Janssen is being linked with a move to Mexico.

As such, Pochettino was this afternoon asked for updates on the futures of both players:

‘There are some reports about Vincent Janssen leaving and is there any update on Danny Rose?’

And the Tottenham boss replied:

“I don’t have any information. I am not in charge of that you know. I was so clear in my press conference the day before.

“I try to manage the squad in the best way possible. Our players when we get back to pre-season after China like I told you for different reasons if they are there and they are still our players then of course they will be involved.

“It will be no problem. For different reasons the club takes some decisions and I cannot explain more. It’s not my situation.” As quoted by football.london.
