Mauricio Pochettino backs Tottenham to improve despite lack of signings

Mauricio Pochettino not expecting Tottenham signings before 5pm but insists he is happy with players he has

Of course, we are open to improving but if you can't improve the most important is to keep your best team and players.

The Argentine also added that while their stadium cost "nearly £1bn", Brexit's effect on the pound against the Euro has made for a "30 per cent" increase when looking to bring players over from the continent.

"I am not anxious, I am not sad, I am so happy".

While fans will take some solace in the fact that key players Toby Alderweireld, Harry Kane and Dele Alli have all stayed at the club, concerns will remain about the strength in depth available to Pochettino.

"Then to keep the best players is to be courageous". The west London club did snap up a player from Madrid on loan for the season: Midfielder Mateo Kovacic, who helped Croatia reach the World Cup final where it lost to France.

Grealish's future has been in doubt after Villa failed to clinch promotion to the Premier League last season, with Spurs, Leicester City and West Ham United all linked with the 22-year-old. To keep our best players was our objective and goal and we have achieved that - at the moment, we will see what happens in the next 20 days in Europe.

Speaking about any possible incomings, the Tottenham manager said in a press conference: "I think it's so hard now".

But, although the Argentinian on Thursday conceded the transfer window would probably close without a fresh face arriving, he was adamant it was still a good period for his team. I need their commitment - 25 players with full commitment but not only one week, two weeks, one month, but until January.

"With Brexit it is worse because the cost is 30 percent more - that is a drama, I feel sorry for the English people - and then keeping the best players, for me [that] is to be courageous". Health is drama, war is drama.
