Spurs still struggling to compete on wages, claims Pochettino

20 Mai 2017

"On July 3, for pre-season, I will be here, don't worry".

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli is focused on enjoying his "journey" in professional football even if it means leaving the Premier League club, the 21-year-old England global has said.

The Lilywhites have won their last 13 home league matches - one short of their club record run of 14 between January and October 1987. We have definitely improved on previous year but after the game against West Ham, everything before gets forgotten.

"I feel angry and disappointed because obviously this is not a game we wanted to lose and this is a very big disappointment for us".

"Of course, that is hard because we are in a completely different project to our opponents, the clubs that play for the same things as us. That's the way it goes, that's football, but we've turned it round and I think if we finish mid-table then all in all, it's been a good season".

Chelsea Football club has emerged champions of the 2016/2017 English Premier League, after a 1-0 win over hosts West Brom which took them to 87 points.

Once again the Spurs fans got behind the current team on Sunday and roared them on to a comfortable victory over United.

"One loss [for them] and a win for us and the gap will just be a point", Vertonghen told Sky Sports.

If a European or Premier League heavyweight came calling, an offer could be too good for Alli to turn down.

This summer and next season, we must try to find the way to inspire, to motivate and push them further in our performance and try to find a different way to play. To try to play in the best condition and try to win.

"You know better than me that it is so hard".

On the other hand, everything can change in a day, and we all know that long-term contracts are not necessarily signs of commitment.

"It's true we can not change the table but it's important for us now to try to win, for us to compete".

Meanwhile the Spurs manager is also missing both of his right-backs - Kyle Walker has an ankle injury while Kieran Trippier suffered concussion against Manchester United on Sunday. We took a big risk on Dele Alli and now he is a massive player, one of the most important in England. "When we put it together nobody can get near us", said Naylor.
