'He needs to focus' - Pochettino sends warning to Rose after transfer criticisms

'He needs to focus' - Pochettino sends warning to Rose after transfer criticisms

Rose is reported to have been fined two weeks' wages over the interview, but with the England global having issued a public apology, Pochettino said the matter was closed. While the likes of Manchester City, United, Chelsea and Arsenal have all splashed the cash this summer the Lilywhites are the only Premier League team to yet sign a single player this transfer window.

"For sure we're going to spend", he said.

The 25-year-old said: "I'm really excited".

"And when you sign a player like Eric Dier, who is an global today when no one knew him before".

"And when I first arrived here [in England], people wanted to know who Mauricio Pochettino [was] too". If we cannot, (then we'll get) another one and make sure they can give us something different.

Tottenham face a similar problem now ahead of their debut season at Wembley and move into their new ground in 2018.

"It's a big challenge for us", the Argentine told TalkSport on Wednesday. When Andre Gray, a striker with nine Premier League goals to his name, is now earning £70,000 a week at Watford - more than several of the Spurs team that finished second previous year - it is inevitable heads will turn.

Could Facebook's Watch take on YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video?
Facebook has officially moved into the video streaming space, announcing the impending launch of its new " Watch " video platform. According to Facebook , creators will one day be able to monetize their shows through ad breaks .

Tottenham have been excellent for the last two seasons and have been extremely unlucky not to have a trophy to show for their efforts.

West Brom have never been a club to be among the big names but last season they looked to be a much more assured outfit and pre-Christmas, they played some good football with what is a modest squad.

The away form will therefore have to improve from last season, as while they topped the ladder in terms of home results, they had the fifth best record on the road. Five days after they ended the Premier League campaign with a 7-1 victory against Hull, Mauricio Pochettino and his players travelled to Hong Kong for an exhibition match against Kitchee. With a new £750 million stadium to pay for, trips such as this and the subsequent U.S. tour are absolutely vital. If he is to have an important season, he needs to make an impact quickly because he is now Spurs' third striker behind Harry Kane and Son.

A very, very productive transfer window has seen West Ham bring in players of the highest calibre, Joe Hart, Javier Hernandez, Marko Arnautovic and Pablo Zabaleta will provide not only their services as players but vital Premier League experience.

Sissoko may start at Newcastle, but Davies definitely will with Danny Rose still out with a knee injury.

"We've wiped that game from our minds now and we will go there looking to better them".

"When you have young players with a good understanding and another year of experience, they have to be better, so I don't think it will be a problem for them because they have the same manager, the same staff, the same players and more experience in the Premier League, so they will be even more risky".
