Jose Mourinho & Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino says he’s ‘not the person’ to explain Tottenham’s transfer issues

Not him

Mauricio Pochettino has once again been asked about the transfer situation at Tottenham Hotspur, and said that it’s not down to him.

The manager noted that the club are working hard – and they are hoping to bring players in, but that it’s really not down to the manager to sort things out, and that things have been more difficult than they’d have liked, for a number of reasons.

Standard Sport report he said:  “Yes. We are working so hard but still we are like it’s the first day of the transfer window – with no signings.

“I think I am not the person to explain it.

“Of course, people expect the manager to explain that but, for different reasons, it’s been difficult to add players who can help us. But in the last week many things can happen.”

Young players

Pochettino spoke about the young players the squad, and added that he thinks they can certainly add something should signings fail to materialise.

He is certainly a manager who is willing to help the young stars break though, and that will no doubt be another feature of the club this season.

He added: “Of course, football is all about adding more quality every season like our rivals are doing.

“If we cannot do that, we need to try to be creative and, of course, the help of younger players will be amazing and they showed they can help us if, in the end, we cannot sign players.”
