Spurs chairman makes bold claim over futures of Kane and Alli


Tottenham Hotspur's English midfielder Dele Alli (L) celebrates with Tottenham Hotspur's English striker Harry Kane after scoring their second goal during the English Premier League football match between Swansea City and Tottenham Hotspur at The Liberty Stadium in Swansea, south Wales on January 2, 2018. Every word that he said yesterday we need to respect because he's our boss.

"We want to start winning trophies so that's the aim. There are a lot of people ready to help with temporary mental issues so it is good for him to get the love from the fans and inspire people to get the same help and talk about it".

Pochettino takes his Spurs side to his former club Southampton on January 21 before taking on Newport County in the FA Cup a week later.

Harry Kane became Tottenham Hotspur's all-time leading goal scorer in the Premier League era in netting two goals in the 3-0 victory over Everton on Saturday.

While Spurs are braced to ward off potential approaches for their top talent, it remains to be seen if they will move to reinforce in the weeks ahead, with Pochettino offering little indication that signings are imminent.

The 45-year-old told reporters: "I think GK wasn't involved too much and of course he's young and he needed to play more and feel more involved in the games".

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy insists the club will not be selling any of their star players this year as he looks to forge a title-challenging outfit. "Maybe in the last five minutes since we came in here, who knows", he added, prompting laughter among the journalists. We're working. We're awake to the market. "But if not, it's hard".
