Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino happy with squad despite no signings

Mauricio Pochettino didn't manage to bring in any new signings this summer but the Tottenham manager expressed his delight at keeping his squad together with no key players leaving.

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

"I am with full energy, I am fitter than last season because I was thinking if a player involved in the World Cup arrives not fit then I have a possibility to play", the former Argentina global defender said at the club's training ground. 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.

"We believe a lot in our players and why not repeat a similar season like past year or the season before, and with more experience?" I think the club is doing an fantastic effort to try to finish the stadium as soon as possible, and the lodge is finished at the training ground.

Tottenham have become the first Premier League club to go an entire summer without signing a single player since the transfer window was created in 2003.

"Of course we didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it's hard to add".

"That maybe looks bad because of the perception and because of the history of football, but that is our decision - to keep the best players and to keep the squad". "I am the boss and if I expect from you to do something, then you need to provide it".

"I am not anxious, I am not sad, I am so happy".

"Then to keep the best players is to be fearless".

"I think it was a great job from the club to keep the best players - and the best manager".

Premier League returns this weekend and Tottenham Hotspur kick-off the 2018/19 campaign with a trip to St James' Park to take on Newcastle United on Saturday.

In all he featured for the club on 43 occasions, finding the net seven times, and playing a part in assisting a number of other strikes. Maybe some players will stay here to try to reach the level, to have more time, for different reasons.
