Mauricio Pochettino hails Tottenham academy after successful United States tour

Mauricio Pochettino hails Tottenham academy after successful United States tour

It means Gennaro Gattuso's men have lost both of their International Champions Cup matches so far, having been beaten 9-8 on penalties by Manchester United last Thursday following a 1-1 draw.

"I want to congratulate them because the youngsters not only showed a great performance on the pitch, we feel very proud of how they behaved outside of the pitch too".

"They showed they have the potential to one day be consistent in the first team".

Llorente has less than a year remaining on his contract with Spurs.

"I can not tell you if we're going to sign one, zero or two or three or four".

"Football is about energy, about desire, about respect for yourself and your teammates, being professional". You've seen Luke Amos play in the last week. Maybe he's going to play before a senior player.

"After many years in football, I think nothing's going to change if you have different moods or humour".

It is worth recalling that, when the north Londoners eventually made their move in 2017, they broke their transfer record to sign Davinson Sanchez for £42 million before spending another £47m on Serge Aurier, Fernando Llorente, Juan Foyth and Paulo Gazzaniga.

He said: "First we need to assess them on Monday and see what happens". "Maybe some players look after themselves and they've been training, maybe others rest". That is so, so clear.

But, asked if the cost will affect the playing budget, executive director Donna-Maria Cullen, one of Levy's closest confidantes, said: 'Not necessarily. "I do think I'll claim it first, but he can definitely have a go".

"Of course, it's not our fault".

With France, Croatia, England and Belgium finishing as the top four teams in Russian Federation, many players of the top clubs, like Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Jesse Lingard and many more have yet to report at their club camps.

Pochettino said he wanted to see his players "keep going" after the World Cup and to "feel the internal motivation".

"That is the reality that is for us a massive challenge, because for us it never happened before and we need to be careful".
