Mauricio Pochettino calls Tottenham's summer transfer inactivity 'brave'

Mauricio Pochettino calls Tottenham's summer transfer inactivity 'brave'

"The club is trying to finish the (new) stadium as soon as possible".

Rafa Benitez having an arguably even more chaotic preparation this summer, though rather than the World Cup, it is Mike Ashley that has been his overwhelming problem.

"I am responsible for what I told you [in May] or what I tell you, but I can not be responsible for what you believe that I wanted to tell you", he said.

Asked if Tottenham's players understand the lack of new arrivals, Pochettino responded: "They don't need to understand".

'We keep the best players.

"Of course it's hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently", he said.

"The most important thing is we're so positive and of course we're going to challenge for big things this season too".

Pochettino and Daniel Levy are playing a unsafe game and they will be praying that the young and talented squad they have built over the last few years can improve again to keep pace with the fast paced of the Premier League. "It's a fearless decision". It's a moment that the club needs to take risks and tries to work harder than the previous season to be competitive again, because every season will be more difficult'.

Trump administration moves ahead with new round of tariffs on Chinese imports
New American tariffs on Chinese goods now affect $50 billion in annual imports, and there's no end in sight. It is now highly likely that China will retaliate, as promised , with its own $ 60 billion tariff round.

They crave new signings in the same way five-year-olds crave presents, but imagine the scene if those children found out that good old Kris Kringle hadn't visited their house.

"Who manages and decides the way to act is the board, and it is not the players".

Tottenham expected to offload Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembele - who only has a year left on his contract - at the start of the summer but have so far retained all three.

"We didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is hard to add players".

"I am the boss and if I expect you to do something then you need to provide it". If we have all the squad thinking as individuals rather than as a collective game, you can not achieve what you want and can not succeed.

'You need to show your commitment, from the pitch, from the bench, sometimes from outside.

"We are always open to finding the solution when it is possible".
