Pochettino accepts Danny Rose's apology, says he has a future at Tottenham



"Also when I first arrived here, people wanted to know who Mauricio Pochettino was, too". Pochettino said in comments published by British newspapers on Saturday. It's very rare a transaction doesn't go through eventually, as we saw with Neymar. "For me this situation is the past".

If Shaw can overcome these injury problems, he can still easily be one of the best left-backs in the league and he should be given another chance this season to prove that he can be the player that United expected him to be when they bought him in the summer of 2014 from Southampton.

Otherwise it should be a familiar side with Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli looking to carry over their excellent form from last season as they support Golden Boot victor Harry Kane in attack.

England worldwide Rose was forced to apologise to the club in a statement published shortly before Pochettino's pre-season press conference, after he gave an interview in which he attacked Tottenham's rigid pay structure and careful transfer strategy.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has reportedly been fined around £130,000 by the club following his controversial interview with The Sun earlier this week.

As for unwanted disruption on the eve of the new season, Pochettino said: 'It is more outside than inside the club.

"Sometimes we will do it and sometimes, we will not do it, but we have to be sure that every single game, the players give everything and myself and my staff will do the same". "It's a courageous move from the club and Mauricio, but he knows his players better than anyone".

'It was his opinion and then he understood he needed to apologise. For me it's not a big issue.

Last summer, they signed attackers Vincent Janssen, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Moussa Sissoko for a combined £58 million, but the trio started just 15 league games between them and only Janssen scored. "This matter is not a problem for myself", Pochettino said. He is our player and he needs to be focused on trying to be fit as soon as possible.

'Tottenham is an exciting club with a great vision and a great future, one of the best facilities in the world and I enjoy it a lot. Nothing has changed in my vision or perception here. He apologised and everyone needs to move on.

Given their relative lack of revenue streams compared to the other teams in the top six - something the club is working hard to rectify - Spurs can argue that the summer has still been a success in keeping together a first XI that finished second past year, Walker aside.

"If you look at the history of Tottenham in the last few years, we always spend at the end of the window", the Argentine told Sky Sports on Wednesday.

"We are so calm and relaxed". The team is ready to compete.

"I don't think it's a matter to joke about because with some of the global players today, maybe one or two years ago, none of us knew them very well", Pochettino said.
