Tottenham first Premier League team to fail to make one summer signing

Mauricio Pochettino

The closest any club had come to not signing a player was in the summer of 2003, when Leeds United signed only Jody Morris for free.

'We didn't receive (any offer) for any player, ' Pochettino told reporters in his pre-Newcastle press conference.

Mauricio Pochettino has "no doubt" his Tottenham team will be stronger this season, even if the club fail to make a single signing in the summer transfer window. That is true, don't believe in £400m, that is the truth.

"Of course it's hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players but sometimes in football you need to behave differently". I think the club made a massive effort to try to extend contracts with people like Harry Kane. "We believe a lot in our players and there's no point now to say, why not repeat a similar season like a year ago or the season before, and with more experience".

"And then with Brexit it is worse because the cost is 30% more, and then keep the best players". Of course maybe in the mind of everyone they will say, "Oh Tottenham didn't sign", but to sign for the sake of signing?

Chinese People's Daily newspaper attacks US President Donald Trump on trade policies
The trade policies of US President Donald Trump has been slammed by China which says the measure of "extortion" won't work. That's a negligible amount for China, which imported 17 million tons total past year , according to the US Census Bureau.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has shed some light on defender Toby Alderweireld's future in north London.

But Pochettino believes all three are at risk of losing focus and has urged them to forget about their futures and contribute to Tottenham's season instead.

"I don't feel the panic in football".

Spurs were the only Premier League club not to make a summer signing after their move for Jack Grealish collapsed but Pochettino said: "What the club is doing is showing it is so courageous". It is important to be professional, to have commitment, with the team, with the club, with yourself, full commitment until the end. 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.
