Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino happy with squad despite no signings

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

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".

"We didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is hard to add players".

"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said Thursday.

"Building a new training ground, then finishing the lodge this summer was a massive investment".

The Tottenham manager says he wants to make clear that all of his players are 'fit - but that being match fit to play without an increased risk of injury is another matter. Building a stadium that costs almost £1billion - that's is the truth, don't believe when they say £400million.

He has already snubbed interest from Everton as he is reluctant to move north again, after a failed stint with Manchester United. Tottenham have also been linked with Zaha, but are now trying to sign Aston Villa's Jack Grealish.

"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 fearless".

"I think I want to make clear that all are fit, but maybe we need to care for some players and not push them to compete, not take some rash decisions with some players due to their background or for different reasons that we are assessing now after Monday".

Tottenham fans were hoping the club would build on last seasons encouraging campaign that saw them finish third in the Premier League table by bringing in some top quality additions this summer to strengthen what is already a very talented young squad.

"It was a odd transfer market because I think until England was out (of the World Cup) no-one was moving". Then also with Europe having more time until the first of September to do deals, it was all so quiet.

But he urged them to knuckle down if they remain for the season, saying: "If all the players today are thinking in a collective target, we can be competitive". "Always, until you finish the game, you can not say "now it's the end of the game". That is the key this season".
