Tottenham told Aston Villa's Jack Grealish not for sale at any price

Tottenham told Aston Villa's Jack Grealish not for sale at any price

"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 is doing an unbelievable effort to try to finish the stadium as soon as possible, and the lodge is finished at the training ground.

When asked about his previous comments, Pochettino said the fact the club was able to keep stars like Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min while spending £1bn on a new stadium and redeveloping their training ground was "brave".

In addition to being the first Premier League team in 15 years to make a summer signing, Tottenham are also the only club in Europe's top five leagues and England's top four tiers without a new player this summer. Of course, we are open to improving but if you can't improve the most important is to keep your best team and players.

"That is true, don't believe in £400m, that (£1bn) is the truth!"

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says Brexit is part of the reason why his side did not sign a single player before the start of the season. They are Tottenham players and always they were in my plans.




"I think it's so hard now because it's only four hours until the end and I don't have news now", Pochettino told a news conference.

"That maybe looks bad because of the perception and history of football but that is our decision - to keep the best players and to keep the squad".

Pochettino added: "We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that. It's a courageous decision".

"You need to give your best to the position the manager says". 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.

The Scotland global was a key man during a loan spell at Villa Park last season, but as the Villans hit financial difficulty early this summer, they were unable to put anything in place that allowed them to keep the playmaker. It's about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not.
