Spiky Pochettino says he’s not worried at losing Tottenham stars

Tottenham managed to keep their squad together as the transfer window shut across Europe, but boss Mauricio Pochettino said he would have been fine with losing any one of his players.

Their top stars were never expected to leave, but there was plenty of speculation that Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele would exit the club.

Pochettino has grown tired over the summer of speaking about those three players in particular and embarked on several monologues about the situation, citing any player could leave if they wanted to.

And the Argentinian had his final say on the matter, suggesting that he would have been fine if all his players left.

Asked about Alderweireld’s situation, a spiky Pochettino said: “Harry Kane is here, Dele Alli is here, (Victor) Wanyama is here, (Eric) Dier is here, (Fernando) Llorente is here, Alderweireld is here…

“I don’t understand why you focus only on some names.

“Maybe you have some information I don’t have. Or better relations with me than someone.

“If you review all my press conferences when did I say expect this or expect that? Never, why you focus on a few names only?

“I don’t understand rumours about, you know, transfer window closing.

“It’s not a problem if we lose one or two or three. Because we have plenty of players in the academy, no problem.

“I am more than happy. I am more than happy to keep all the players and I am more than happy if they leave and we play with the under-23s.

“It’s not a problem, I promise you. Not a problem for me.”
